Flipboard now fits in your pocket with the release of version 1.7. The new universal app supports both the iPhone and iPad on devices running iOS 4.0 or greater. The new version brings support for the small screen in addition to Cover Stories, a new feature exclusive to the iPhone and iPod touch that grabs a curated selection of articles and images currently being shared with you. Its creators say the feature grows smarter over time and will eventually find its way into the full-sized iPad app.

Otherwise, Flipboard remains one of the most visually elegant magazine-style approaches for accessing your news and social media feeds. Device support shows compatibility with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad and you can download it now from iTunes.
