Oprah Comes to Flipboard
Flipboard fans get ready, because Oprah is on her ways to the app’s iPad-only digital pages. And Oprah fans, you should get ready too, because you’ve likely never seen Oprah’s content look this good before.
Starting today, Flipboard will feature an official Oprah section, which will be automatically included with every new download of the Flipboard iPad app.
“With the Oprah curated section,” writes the company in its release, “fans will not only see the latest and greatest from Oprah properties, but they will be able to view the launch of her personal Farewell Countdown Videos exclusively on Oprah.com and on Flipboard.”
“What we’ve announced today is a first for Flipboard and an exciting step toward connecting Flipboard readers to the globally admired content of Oprah,” said Mike McCue, CEO and Co-founder of Flipboard. “We’ve been honored to work with her team to create a truly integrated Oprah experience that gives her audience a way to enjoy her stories and easily share and comment on the things that inspire them everyday.”
In February, Flipboard managed to bring legendary music magazine Rolling Stone on board and ReadWriteWeb’s Audrey Watters was gushing over the news. If Flipboard can continue with content deals of this level, it surely has a good thing going.
