Flipboard users, especially on iOS, will be happy to know that their favorite social magazine application is welcoming a new category today. It is simply called Books and it’s powered by 25 new sections containing the most popular books from Apple’s iBookstore. Yes, you heard that right. Flipboard and Apple are now working together to bring books into the app. The new Books section is essentially like browsing in a bookstore, right from your Flipboard.
That means that iOS users can now browse for books inside the Flipboard app. They cannot, however, read the entire book there. The books from iBookstore are optimized for Flipboard. The pages are clean and white, offering enough well-lighted space for comfortable reading. Apart from the book summary and image from the publisher, there are also links that lead directly to Apple’s iBookstore. The new Books section is available beginning today via the local Flipboard Content Guides. For now, the new feature is only available on iOS.
