My personal favourite part of the update, though, is the speed increase. I like Flipboard a lot, but it moved pretty darn sluggishly before, which is annoying when you're trying to flip through articles. This update makes the app twice as fast at loading content, making it way more usable than it was. While I'd still love to see some more basic RSS support — since right now you can only see your entire Google Reader feed — this update definitely brings the app much closer to "must have" status rather than "must see". It's a very nice way to read through your favourite sites and social networks. Hit the link to see the other changes in the update.
Flipboard is a free download for the iPad only.
