Google Brings Fast Flip to Android and iPhone
Google recently introduced a new news-viewing service called Fast Flip. Fast Flip lets users quickly scan through news stories in a way that merges the way we read online and in print. Fast Flip lets users swipe from story to story with their finger. If the user wants more information, double-tapping will bring up the full article. Fast Flip will let users create their own "magazine" by searching for specific topics. Fast Flip will also highlight popular articles and trending topics. Fast Flip works on all iPhone, iPod Touch and Android-powered devices. It can be found at fastflip.googlelabs.com.
