"Here’s what is: Propeller is a souped-up version of similar reader apps such as Flipboard, AOL’s Editions, Yahoo’s Livestand, Zite (which was just bought by Time Warner’s CNN) and Pulse."

"Users who follow The New Yorker magazine through iPad social reader Flipboard will start noticing advertising as part of the mix. The ads, beginning with a campaign by American Express, are part of a deal with the magazine’s publisher, Condé Nast, which will be working with Flipboard on ads for Wired and Bon Appétit and other titles over the course of the year."

"Flipboard, one of the first iPad applications to really take advantage of the new device’s touch interface to create a kind of digital magazine, released a series of updates and new features Thursday that turn the app into even more of a tablet newsstand. As newspapers and magazines continue to try to capture readers with their own site-specific apps, Flipboard is making it easier for users to create their own constantly changing iPad magazine — one that pulls from hundreds of sources, and has social feeds and signals built in. As we’ve argued before, this looks a lot like the future (or one version of the future) of digital publishing."

“I can now confirm Flipboard itself is being blocked [in China]. All services (not just Facebook and Twitter) no longer work."

"If traditional media was all about broadcasting — distributing a one-size-fits-all message to a wide audience, usually via a platform controlled by the media — new media is more about personalization and customization. In other words, the quest for a “Daily Me.” But it’s still unclear how exactly we’re going to get there. Are Facebook and Twitter the new gatekeepers? Will it happen in an app, or on the web? Will algorithms do it, or human beings, or some combination of both? Two new entrants — a service called Trove and an iPad app called News.me — have joined the horde of players who are trying to answer that question, and they have taken very different approaches."

"Whether Flipboard gets there or not remains to be seen, but one thing has become clear to me the more I use the iPad: Apps such as Zite and Flipboard are a much more natural way to consume content on a tablet, and the aggregation they provide is like having a customized newspaper — the so-called “Daily Me” — available at any time."

"Every media company should be afraid of Flipboard. The Palo Alto startup epitomizes the best and the worst of the internet. The best is for the user. The worst is for the content providers that feed its stunning expansion without getting a dime in return."

"When news came out the other day that Flipboard just raised another $50 million at a $200 million valuation for its iPad news reading app, I gave CEO Mike McCue a hard time on Twitter and here on TechCrunch. Does an iPad app startup really need $50 million, or is this yet another sign of a bubble? McCue responded on Twitter, but yesterday we spoke by phone and he went into great detail about why exactly he thinks he needs $50 million..."

"Today, [Flipboard's] co-founder and CEO Mike McCue confirmed the $50 million round at an eye-popping $200 million valuation, in a wide-ranging interview at the start-up’s Palo Alto, Calif., HQ. [...] Left unsaid, of course, was the need for funding to fight the likelihood of increased competition in the hot space for delivering both professional and social content to consumers on a wide range of devices."

"This is the second post in a new RWW series looking at how the user experience of consuming media has changed with the increasing popularity of devices other than the PC. Yesterday we explored the thriving world of music on smartphones. Today we look at news apps on the iPad."
