Flipboard Magazines Can Now Be Enjoyed on the Web

Inside Flipboard / July 23, 2013


Since the launch of Flipboard 2.0, more than 2 million magazines have been made about every topic imaginable, from immigration reform to neon works of art to Sherlock Holmes. Now, for the first time, all of those magazines can be experienced on the Web. Starting today, when you share a Flipboard magazine via email or social media, anyone who clicks on the link can read it, whether or not they use Flipboard.

The Web magazines were uniquely designed for desktop browsing, all with Flipboard’s signature look and feel. Each magazine has an expansive, full-bleed cover, and pages can be “flipped” from left and right, just like on mobile devices. Curators can continue to add content to their magazines from the Web and other Web magazines, but now they have a significant new way to grow readership.

Take a look:

The Web magazines are supported in desktop browsers IE9+, Safari, Chrome and Firefox in 11 languages, including English, Japanese, Chinese, French and German. Click on the menu icon in the top left corner of any magazine to explore beautiful magazines curated by the Flipboard community.

If you want to start creating your own magazines, go to Flipboard on your smartphone or tablet and create an account, which you’ll need to curate content you love.

We’re excited to be taking this first step to opening Flipboard on the Web.
