Flipboard introduces 'Cover Stories' for iPad

Flipboard introduces 'Cover Stories' for iPad

The popular social newsreader Flipboard has announced that it's adding a new feature to its iPad app: Cover Stories.

Cover Stories, previously only available on Flipboard's mobile app, is a feature that picks links most likely to be relevant to users' interests based on what their friends are sharing and what they've previously read.

Daniel Terdiman at CNET writes that the feature learns from users' behaviour, so that the more they visit, the more relevant articles Flipboard can deliver. Terdiman quotes his colleague Rafe Needleman, who said that Cover Stories "did a good job of finding articles I didn't know about and that I would be interested in reading."
