Flipboard previews Windows 8 app in teaser video

At the Build 2013 keynote speech Wednesday morning, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer briefly mentioned a few upcoming apps for Windows 8, including Facebook and Flipboard, though no screenshots or videos were shown. Flipboard has now released a teaser video for its Windows 8 app, however, briefly showcasing what users can expect.

The video, seen above, only lasts eight seconds and shows the app's live tile and general appearance. Flipboard, which is currently available on Android and iOS, allows users to subscribe to media outlets, showing articles with a unique appearance that makes heavy use of associated photography in what the company calls a "magazine-like format."

As with Microsoft's own news app, the Flipboard app will cycle through stories with brief descriptions in its live tile. In the general interface, users will see a list of their subscriptions to media outlets as well as a new and noteworthy section that highlights trending articles and media outlets.
