Have you experienced Flipboard? It’s an app that acts as your personal source for news and information. Let me explain: you chose which categories interest you most, like American politics, children’s literature, and space travel, and Flipboard sends you articles from a myriad of publications that match your interests. And it’s not like they’re obscure publications from disreputable sources; they cover the biggies like NYT or the Washington Post as well as more focused publications.
