Flipboard Named Publishing Innovator of the Year

By October 23, 2012News

If innovation can be measured by impact, then Flipboard certainly fits the bill. Since its launch in 2010, the app, which aggregates news and information from social media contacts and selected news sources, has rewritten the rules of mobile content delivery through its use of personalized RSS feeds, sophisticated interactivity and a clean, magazine-like design. In addition to inspiring admiration (and some consternation) from media and tech companies looking to solve the puzzle of digital content distribution, its importance to a changing publishing industry has earned it the 2012 Publishing Innovator of the Year award.
