    whoohoo! can we get rid of the facebook tile if we don’t have facebook yet? because that would be awesome.

  2. Yes, you can now remove both the Facebook and Twitter content boxes and you can add them at any time later. Thus, by your logic, it is awesome. :)

    Any chance of being able to pull in Facebook Fan pages in a future update?

    Nice update. Didn’t think I’d find another view of FB useful, but it really is. I see things FB things from a different perspective (including pictures I didn’t notice the other ways).

    woo-hoo!! I was so excited at first w/ Flipboard. Then all of a sudden I saw nothing but a different format for Facebook. TURNED ME OFF!! I’ll go to FB if I want FB, but it’s articles around the world I’m after. Haven’t tried it yet, but hope to see it like it was when first started.

    Great, Flipboard get’s better and better everything time, is my most visited and enjoyable app in my iPad.

    Google Reader Full sync support please?

    Flipboard is by far the best reader anywhere in the universe, but it doesn’t offer the right contents for me. I’d love to read my RSS feeds here!

    I. Love. Flipboard. The Pseudo-rss feeds for TUAW, Slashdot and Engadget, though they just read the twitter feed, actually follow the shortened URLs and pull the content into Flipboard. Smart, intelligent, eliminates the need for RSS, and does so in a sexy sexy way.

    I don’t know what your business model is, but if you want me to pay for it, I will. I want you to succeed.

    This is great. Enjoying this a ton. But can you create lists within flipboard? When I add a tile I can only use existing lists which means i’d have to follow more people.

    • At this time you can only use the existing Twitter lists. You don’t have to follow everyone you add to a list, you can just add them to a list. That’s what’s nice about how lists work, you can organize your stream a bit better, keeping your friends and important contacts in your live stream, and moving things your interested in some times to a list you can check when ever (or that special feed you created just to see in Flipboard!). Hepe this helps.

  14. Is there a way to create a post in facebook through flipboard? Love this thing.

    Love the Flipboard. Love the multiple accounts update.
    How do I create an additional Flipboard account.
    I apologize in advance if i am missing something obvious.
