For those who haven’t discovered Flipboard yet, you’re missing out. The iPhone and Android-friendly application lets you browse and enjoy your favorite content—be it news articles, Twitter feeds or the best of BuzzFeed—without having to ever leave Flipboard. Readers can “flip” through Fliboard magazines’ article headlines like one would with a physical magazine, and select any article they want to read further.

Users can also create their own Flipboard magazines based on their hobbies, passions or even an Instagram feed. Flipboard is all about making it easy for people to collect and consume their favorite content from the web in one place. As a great medium for finding the coolest content on the web (like All That Is Interesting’s own magazine), we recommend you check out these awesome Flipboard magazines:

1. So Bad So Good

So Bad So Good Flipboard Magazines

When flipping through So Bad So Good, you can never be quite sure what you will encounter. Sure, there are plenty of funny videos and awesome Game of Thrones posts, but there are also articles like “A Helpful Guide to Making Your Own Office Crossbow” (wait, what?). Readers will love this collection of the Internet’s best and worst memes, advice, how-to articles and crazy cat videos.

2. Cooking (by Lilliminza)

Cooking (by Likliminza) is the cure to those nights when nobody can decide what to eat for dinner. Recipes like smoky beetroot hummus and jalapeño and cheese biscuits are anything but ordinary, yet plenty experimental for cooks who like a challenge. Fair warning—the occasional German recipe is flipped onto this magazine. If you can read the language, you’re in for a real treat (pun intended).

3. The Art of Manliness

The Art of Manliness is a sharp, witty collection of articles about manhood. From “A Manly Handshake: An Illustrated Guide” to “Preventing Swamp Crotch: 10 Products ‘Scientifically’ Tested,” this man’s mag hits on everything that’s important to a well-rounded dude.

4. Cool (Content Guide)

Cool Flipboard Content Guide

The Cool Content Guide covers just about everything, from the latest technology to funny videos to photos from the International Drone Photography Awards. If you’ve been wondering what toys look like in under an x-ray or haven’t yet seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail performed on flaming bagpipes, then you should head to Flipboard and subscribe to Cool.

5. World News Watch

There are a number of Flipboard magazines dedicated to news—local news, sports news, global news, you name it. They’ve got it. World News Watch flips top news stories from all over the world, giving you a sneak peek at the current state of affairs. Of course, this magazine isn’t for readers who want to be uplifted. Instead, you’ll more likely encounter news on the latest car bombings, military threats, missing persons or overseas scuffles.

6. 3D Printing

3D Printing is a great example of how Flipboard can liven up any niche or field. For those who haven’t yet discovered the part sci-fi, part real-life phenomenon that is 3D printing, check out our article on how 3D printing technology is changing the world. If you’re already familiar with the potpourri of amazing things that can be printed, subscribe to this mag and we guarantee you’ll have your mind blown on a regular basis.

7. All That Is Interesting

All That Is Interesting Flipboard Magazines

We may be a little biased (okay, a lot biased) but the All That Is Interesting Flipboard magazines are pretty awesome. We flip articles on just about everything, from absurd performance artists to the world’s ugliest animals to the Internet’s coolest chemical reaction GIFs. And you’re already here, so you know you’re bound to find some great stuff on our Flipboard magazine, too.

9. National Geographic

The National Geographic mag needs no introduction. As expected, this Flipboard magazine offers the best nature and culture related articles, accompanied by some of the most mind-bending photographs in the world.

Street Art is mostly visual, making it easy to flip through the latests posts in a moment’s time.

17. Kids + Parenting (Stacy Teet)

Curated by Stacy Teet, this mag is the perfect reading material for a parent who values discovery and fun. In the last couple weeks, we’ve seen recipes for Ocean Swirl Glitter Slime, summer skincare tips and a budget-friendly guide to visiting Disney World, all pulled from the top kid-friendly (and mother-approved) websites.
