Flipboard CEO Mike McCue said an iPhone Flipboard app was the number one request from iPad users. Too bad all 4.2 million of them decided to download the app on its first day, leaving newer non-iPad owners wondering what all the fuss is about.
The popular iPad app is so popular on the iPhone, that it crashed the Flipboard servers making it impossible to create a new account. New users are receiving an error message that reads: "Couldn't build your Flipboard. Please check your internet connection and try again."
Flipboard tweeted "Due to high demand, our service is currently down, we are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible."
Version 1.7 turns your "social-network posts, photos and videos into a magazine-like visual experience" on your iPhone. Well, according to USA Today it does. I have to take their word for it because like many users I can't get Flipboard to work on my iPhone 4S.
