Flipboard - A New Way To Read Photography For Real Estate

In: 
Published: 30/07/2010

I apologize in advance that this post is only for those PFRE readers with iPads. There is a new free, breakthrough application for the iPad that is that is the kind of application that in an of itself makes it worth having an iPad. It is called Flipboard.

To me this application feels as much of a conceptual breakthrough that Visicalc (the first spread sheet application) felt like in 1979. Flipboard is the kind of application that in and of itself can be the reason to have a iPad. I know, some of you are rolling your eyes... bear with me here gentle readers!

Here's how it works:

  1. Flipboard takes any twitter or Facebook feed and formats it like a nicely laid out electronic magazine that you can page through. The screen capture to the right (or above depending on your screen size) is and example.
  2. As a result, since I  use my PFREblog twitter account to tweet each time I write a post and I put a compressed URL of the post in each tweet, if you add a content section to Flipboard that uses the PFREblog twitter feed (you do this by searching for "PFREblog" when adding a content section) Flipboard  creates a electronic magazine out of the PFREblog twitter feed that contains all the posts that I've tweeted about. You can quickly flip through the blog post and if anytime you choose to go directly to the blog it does that with the tap of your finger.
  3. And of course, you can do the same thing for any twitter or Facebook feed. This concept means that Flipboard allows you to create a personal social magazine that contains everything your friends are talking about or out of the blogs you chose to follow... a brilliant concept.

While the iPad makes a elegant platform for Flipboard I think the concept of creating a beautiful format out of a twitter feed  would work on any platform. I fully expect to see this kind of personalized social browser for other platforms as well.

In the mean time, if you have an iPad it is well worth you time to try out Flipboard.

  1. My wife has promised I can buy an iPad after I get more bookings for RE shoots!! I already have an iPhone 4 and LOVE it! Both are an amazing marketing tool when combined with our galleries on SmugMug which works beautifully on both devices! The times they are a changin!

  2. According to a new study, "iPad Users Are 'Selfish Elites,' Study Says "

    LOL dunno why they did this study but sure was funny!
