FlipBoard Adds Podcasts From NPR, PRI, & More

FlipBoard, the social reading magazine, just got a little more vocal. This iPad app got a new update yesterday which adds podcasts from National Public Radio and Public Radio International to the many curated news sources available in the app. Readers will also find content from the social music site SoundCloud.

The new content is available in 2 ways. You can add the podcasts to your reading selections in the Content Guide just like any other news source, and you can also open the new audio tab on the menu and search there for the specific song or podcast you’re interested in.

You can add either individual clips to your app or you can add specific sources such as PRI’s The World or KQED. These are then added to your reading selections, which means new content from theses sources will show up among the blog posts and news stories you’re reading.
