Google Makes Reading News Better – Fast Flip

Google has done something wonderful again. A new Google Labs app called “Fast Flip” is currently being tested to the public shows you a graphical representation of what the current news and information sites look like on a “larger than a thumbprint” perspective. From the phrase itself, you flip through the different bureaus and sites or choose to move left through right. Totally cool! Fast Flip currently has four categories:

Popular – Recent, Most viewed, Recommended, Headlines

Sections – Politics, Business, U.S., World, Sports, Sci/Tech, Entertainment, Health, Opinion, Travel

Topics – San Francisco, Swine Flu, 9/11, Music, September 11, Computer, Taylor Swift

Sources – Salon, Washington Post, Billboard, The Atlantic, Slate, Popular Mechanics, All sources

I’m not sure if you log into Google these sub-categories will change. I wasn’t logged in and these were what was shown. But, it’s better than surfing to each site one by one by just click a phrase link.
