Flipboard has been promising its own Windows 8 app for a while now, and its had its first official reveal at the Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi.

According to The Verge, the app is pretty similar to what can already be found on iOS and Android. There’s all the usual features that allow you to switch between feeds and add new ones, but pinning support for Windows 8 has also been included. Basically, this allows you to add feeds to the Start Screen so that you don’t even need to access the app to stay up-to-date.

The site reports that the app is running fast and has been optimised for Windows RT. Then there’s the promised Windows Phone version. It hasn’t been shown yet but will apparently be arriving shortly. More Flipboard for all.
