Flipboard for iOS has been updated to version 2.0.2, adding profile pages for its users along with a new "Friends" category and the ability to share articles via SMS.
Profile pages are designed to work in conjunction with the Magazine functionality that was introduced with the 2.0 update, allowing Flipboard users to create and share personally curated content. Profile pages are meant to give insight into "readership and curation activity."
The new Friends category in the Content Guide also enhances personalized magazine discovery, making it easy for Flipboard users to find magazines created by their friends.
Update 2.0.2 offers improved sharing tools as well, with the ability to share stories through SMS and save Flipboard images to the camera roll.
