Google’s new toy, Fast Flip, which has been under the “Google Labs” section for the past 5 months has just gone mobile. The mobile version of Fast Flip is now available for iPhone and Android devices. Simply navigate to the Fast Flip page to use it on your device.
For those of you that missed the bus, Google Fast Flip is an online application that lets users “flip” through and share news articles quickly and easily, similar to that of a magazine. How it works is that Google captures images of the articles of their partner’s websites and displays them in an easy-to-read format. There are multiple categories to choose from such as Business, Opinion, Social Media, Technology, Most Viewed, Recommended, and the list goes on.
When Google mentions to “partner” websites, they are referring to some of the most influential online media publications out there, such as: TechCrunch, New York Times, Mashable, Daily Telegraph and even Playboy. The complete list of sources can be found here.
