Flipboard update lets track the stats of your magazines, find content from friends faster

Flipboard has been updated, adding several improvements, with new profile pages, easier sharing, and the ability to save images directly to your Camera Roll. Profile pages now give you statistics on the magazines you create, such as how many articles you have, as well as the number of readers. They also show you your magazines and the articles in them, allowing you to manage your existing content directly from your page.

It’s also easier to discover content by the people you follow, not just on Flipboard but also the social networks connected to it. Open the Content Guide and under you name you’ll see a new section, Friends, which contains a new content section, Flips by Friends. This section contains not only content from magazines that you have subscribed to, but also content shared to Flipboard by those you follow through various social media outlets.

There were a number of smaller tweaks as well. Sharing has become a little easier with the redesigned sharing menu. The new menu allows easier access to sharing options, while now allowing users to share articles and magazines through SMS. You can now also save images to your Camera Roll. When viewing an image item, like something from Instagram, for example, tap the share menu and hit the 'Save to Camera Roll' button. Finally, Flipboard now has improved navigation for Google Reader folders.

The update is now available on the App Store.
