For years, Flipboard has been a popular app for anyone looking to keep up-to-date on the latest news and trends. However, if you’re subscribed to a number of different topics, your main Flipboard page can quickly become overwhelming.

This is where Flipboard magazines come into play. Magazines are helpful for organizing your articles into specific categories, either to read later or share with friends.

You can create a new Flipboard magazine using both the mobile app for iPhone and Android devices, and the website on your Mac or PC. Here’s how.

How to create a Flipboard magazine in the mobile app

1. Open the Flipboard app on your iPhone or Android device and tap on the profile tab at the bottom-right of the screen — its icon looks like the silhouette of a person’s head and shoulders.

2. Tap the “Magazines” heading, and tap the gray box that’s labeled “Make a New Magazine…” This will always appear in the upper-left corner, no matter how many squares you create.

3. Choose one of the four category options.

  • Choose “For a passion” if you’d like to create a magazine that automatically pulls in stories the app thinks you’d be interested in.
  • Choose “For reading specific sources” if you’d like to limit your magazine to stories from specific outlets.
  • Choose “For sharing in a group” if you’d like to make a collaborative magazine with others.
  • Choose “For collecting” if you’d like to pick and choose what goes into the magazine from all sources.

4. Every category except for “For a passion” will then ask you to give your magazine a name and a description. You’ll also have the option to make the magazine private.

5. Tap “Create Magazine” when you’re ready, and pick what you want to put in it.
