Leak: Flipboard coming to the Mac App Store?

Business Insider is reporting that “someone” leaked photos of Flipboard’s upcoming desktop application. They’re also assuming that the application will be featured in the Mac App Store. According to their tipster, the application will also feature tight integration with the trackpad.

The screenshot barely shows the dock, but if you look really closely you can see a Flipboard icon. While the possibilities are obviously endless, it’s also difficult to get a feel of how a touch-based application will function on a monitor. I guess we’ll know soon enough.

If Apple has its way, the Magic Trackpad will be ubiquitous in all households rocking Macs during 2011. The problem is that not many applications make full use of the trackpad’s “capabilities.”

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Apple this year, it’s that they make sure developers are featuring the technologies they’re hocking in Keynotes.  If the trackpad is going to catch on like Apple hopes it will, a lot of developers are going to have to figure out a way to creatively make use of the multi-touch capabilities.
