Just published, the second episode of the vExperts Weekly Digest. What I’m finding is that with the Flipboard magazine creation process is that you can’t simply produce a single magazine with multiple editions. Each one is currently a separate magazine itself. To me this is problematic and annoying primarily because you can’t simply subscribe to a magazine and then get updated with each new edition. The alternative is to remove all the previous flipped content and then create a new magazine with new articles. I think for a weekly digest that will be too much, not to mention, there will be no way to go back and view the previous weeks version.
I’ve got a few emails out to the flipboard team to see if this functionality is going to be added or if its something I’m simply not seeing. The one problem with not having a web based content creation panel is that the ability to edit and post produce sucks. So this project continues to be a work in progress and I’m still working out the kinks. Regardless, I’m happy to report that the first edition had 29 subscribers and 669 flips for the content within.
