Flipboard for iOS update adds animated GIF support

The latest iOS iteration of Flipboard is getting gif animation support . In anĀ app update rolling out today, Flipboard will begin supporting animated GIFs right inside of magazines, this means no more jumping into a web browser in order to watch them.

The update is also trying to make some of Flipboard’s default magazines a bit smarter: the US News, Business, Tech, and Sports sections will now open with the day’s “leading news” stories, rather than just displaying a compilation of what’s been added. we hope Flipboard will roll it out to other magazines as time goes on.
