Do-It-Yourself: Flipboard Adds Mags for Hacking & Crafting

Attention do-it-yourselfers: Flipboard, in its continued mission to weave premium content into its social magazine for iPad, has added a perfectly optimized version of MAKE Magazine to its digital magazine rack.

The update comes just one day before the start of Maker Faire in the Bay Area. Maker Faire, created by MAKE Magazine, is a celebration of arts, crafts, engineering, and DIY projects; and Flipboard users will now be able to follow the festival via their iPads.

In addition to MAKE, Flipboard users who fire up the application and click on the “Featured” tab will discover a handful of titles tailored toward their inventing, crafting, hacking, making, breaking, painting, molding and building interests.

Included in the DIY line-up are CraftInstructables, Hack a Day and ReadyMade.

The content is an interesting departure from the more newsy fare Flipboard has been known to feature and highlights the diversity and potential of the application.
