The Flipboard for Windows Phone app has been updated today, bringing with it a new Topics feature that allows you to find new content in the news-meets-magazine app based on your interests. The update, version 188.8.131.52 for those keeping score at home, allows you to define tags of subjects that you are interested in within the app. You can then quickly and easily find new content based on those tags, i.e. topics. There are over 34,000 topics within Flipboard so you shouldn’t have any problem finding that item of interest.
One thing to keep in mind about the new Topics feature is that is only available in the US, Canada, United Kingdom and India. Flipboard indicates that more regions will be added in the future but
there is no timeline mentioned as to when.
In addition to the Topics addition, Flipboard for Windows Phone also allows you to manage your created magazines better from within the app. Now you can do things like change the cover, edit the content and even delete your magazine if you want to do so.
Finally, as expected, you have the normal “bug fixes and performance improvements” mentioned in the release notes. What was fixed or addressed in the app is not clear but personally I’ve not had any issues running the app on any of my Lumia’s.
Flipboard for Windows Phone is a free app and runs on 512MB devices which opens it up to virtually every Windows Phone out there. You will need a free Flipboard account to use the app.
