Flipboard … killer app or more iHype?

I don’t have an iPad, but if I did, I’d be very interested in Flipboard.

But I’ve gotta ask, why isn’t this a web app? Last time I looked, the web browser was still more ubiquitous than Apple’s new toy.
Thanks to @AJCann for the link.

  1. Look like more iHype to me. Just delivering closed content. But then I would say that…..

  2. Re: iHype, I have noticed some bias in your recent postings yes!

    To be fair, as it's content filtered by your social network, I can see some value in Flipboard as a concept! But it'd be more compelling if it was a browser-based web app rather than an iPad app.

    There is a danger that iPad and iPhone apps, paid-for content remember, may take some really good ideas and squirrel them away behind a paywall.

    We need a counter movement … web apps not App Store apps.
