Flipboard for iPad

Flipboard is the world's first social magazine. Your Flipboard is a fast, beautiful way to flip through news, photos and updates your friends are sharing on Facebook and Twitter. And it’s an incredible place to discover fresh content from around the Twittersphere.
This is getting incredible buzz around the blogosphere/twitterverse...not being a Facebook user, I'm sure I'm missing out on some of it's power But worth checking out!

I have been trying to, but a Twitter mob has descended on their servers and they have imploded. Hopefully they will sort it out soon, it does look interesting.

Ah, good, so its not just my Twitter account that can't access it

The other stuff seems interesting-instead of RSS, it looks like a more curated approach to news gathering.

If you get on, maybe you can share some screen shots here? I'm not into social networking, but wouldn't mind seeing what the feature looks like.

This is very nice. I managed to get one Twitter account hooked up to it after repeated attempts. Feels very much like a magazine with tweets living alongside linked articles complete with photos.

I will, Maggie! Twitter must be getting slammed today by all the requests.

Here is ReadWriteWeb's writeup of it...http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives...antic_data.php

Note that the social content is going to be pretty dependent on...well, who you are social with

It is very pretty though-kinda reminds me of the Photos slideshow.

Same here. From what I can see with the default content, I think this could be a go-to application for me once I'm able to actually get it configured with the twitter feeds I want.

Keep trying. I got the "server too busy" message...or words to that effect... just kept trying repeatedly and both FB and Twitter were added.

This is a very impressive free app. The buzz is very well deserved in this case.

When you do get access my guess is that you will really enjoy it.

I sure do!
