Flipboard collects Apple iPad accolade

A five-month-old mobile application that gathers your Facebook and Twitter feeds and a selection of magazines into one readable place has won Apple’s highest accolade: its top iPad app of the year.

Flipboard, after a rocky launch on July 20, this month expanded its range to include selected content from ABC News, All Things Digital, Bon Appetit, Lonely Planet, SB Nation, SF Chronicle/Gate, Uncrate and The Washington Post Magazine.

Tech veteran Mike McCue, who is Flipboard’s CEO, said he got the idea while sitting on an airplane with a lap full of magazines.
