Flipboard is my favorite way to read tech news and discover interesting stories. You’ve always been able to follow your favorite publishers/sources on Flipboard, but the latest redesign offers even more ways to discover awesome content. In this post (after a bit of an introduction on how to use Flipboard to find awesome content) I list links to 10 awesome tech magazines to follow on Flipboard.
Try clicking on the icon just to the right of the home icon on your iPhone (the one that looks like it is made up of four squares). This is the “Following” section of the Flipboard app. In the “All” section, at the top, is a search field. Type in the name of your favorite blog or news site to add it as a source. If you love technology, you can’t go wrong following TechCrunch, Pando Daily, The Next Web, Mashable, Gizmag or ReadWrite, to name a few of the obvious picks.
Or, if you’d like to follow another Flipboard user, click on “People” and then “Find People to Follow.” You can easily find featured Flipboard magazine makers or connect with people you are already following or friends with on other social networks like Twitter or Facebook. Or simply find people you know based on your phone contacts. There are some tech heavy-hitters on Flipboard I’d recommend following such as Robert Scoble (of course), Evan Williams (as in the guy who founded Twitter and Medium) and Ryan Hoover (of Product Hunt notoriety).
But the greatest way to discover new content with Flipboard’s latest update is to use the Topics feature. If you’re new to Flipboard you’ll be asked to follow some topics and it’s worth it to take the time to find the topics you’ll love. I probably spent about 5 minutes finding the original set of topics I wanted to follow on Flipboard when the new version came out and I’ve been very happy with the results.
Some of the tech-related Flipboard topics I follow include startups, Mac software, software development, emerging technology, data mining, wearable tech, Internet of Things, technological change, interaction design, UI design, venture capital, semantic web, iPhone apps, breakthroughs, iPad apps, spying, iPad, cloud computing, headphones, 3D printing, iPhone, the future, space travel, information design, artificial intelligence, computers, Internet, computer science, big data, travel technology, Silicon Valley, Google, Amazon, etc…
And that’s just a handful (I really didn’t feel like typing them all out here—but you get a good idea of what’s available). There’s literally a topic for just about everything. Shortly after the Apple Watch was announced, for instance, there was already an Apple Watch topic to follow.
Now I have to admit that I’m a bit biased toward the Flipboard magazines I’ve listed below since, well, they’re mine. I “flip” content into them on a daily basis so there’s literally always something new to check out. The nature of any Flipboard magazine is that they are highly curated and these are curated by me, the Editor of DailyTekk. I use Flipboard as one of my main sources of technology content discovery so I’ve come to rely on it as a trusted source. Through Flipboard, I’ve opened-sourced a big portion of my technology research for all to read. Let’s flip together!
I’ve created more than 10 tech magazines on Flipboard—if you want to follow them all you can by following my Flipboard account: @dailytekkeditor
