Flipboard co-founder, Evan Doll, appeared on "The Valley Girl Show" to discuss the new social magazine app and its origin. In an article dated Feb. 6, The Valley Girl Show.com discussed their interview.
Co-founders of Flipboard, Evan Doll and Mike McCue, both have rich resumes in the IT world. Doll was the first person to teach app development at Stanford University and also worked at Apple. Mike McCue had been involved with important developments at Netscape, Microsoft, and the Tellme Network.
They met and decided to build something together that would help people sort through the information overload that had built up on the Internet. They wanted to do it in a more visually pleasing way, according to the interview on The Valley Girl Show.com.
Flipboard was still on the drawing board when the iPad was introduced. It was the impetus for the direction that the company took in recreating the web browser.
Flipboard allows a user to access all of their social media streams and desired news streams in a beautiful format, similar to Pinterest, but even more pleasing to the eye.
