AOL Editions magazine app coming for iPad

AOL has taken its first concerted step into iPad apps with the tease of AOL Editions. The title takes a cue from Flipboard but, as teased in a video (below), may be more reactive. Instead of the user creating custom feeds, it would work based on interests and collate the content into a very stylized, magazine-like format with a clearer theme, such as music.

No signs exist of whether or not it will pull content from social media like Facebook or Twitter, although competition from Flipboard and AOL's past integration of social feeds in its AIM Livestream makes it an option. The app doesn't have any definite release date but may be arriving soon given that it's now on public display.

Internet-aware magazines have quickly become one some of the most popular reading apps and include not just purely Internet-driven apps such as Editions, Flipboard and Pulse but through updates to traditional formats, such as Virgin's Project. Most of these are so far iPad-only due to the scarcity of Android tablets, though this should change soon. [via TechCrunch]
