Flipboard for iOS has received a number of new features in its latest update, which is available to download from the App Store today. Users can now enjoy profile pages with readership and curation statistics, as well as a new Friends category in the Content Guide. There’s also the ability to share stories via SMS.

Flipboard 2.0, which landed back in March, gave users the ability to create their own customized magazines filled with content from their favorite sources. With Flipboard 2.0.2, those are now accompanied by profile pages, which give you a window onto your readership and curation activity.

And if you’re interested in the magazines friends are creating, check out the new Friends category within the Content Guide. When you find a story you want to share with a friend who isn’t on Facebook or Twitter, and doesn’t use email (really?), then you can take advantage of the app’s new SMS sharing feature.

In addition to all of this, today’s update also adds the ability to save images to your iOS device, and improved navigation for Google Reader RSS folders — not that you’ll need it for much longer.

Download the latest Flipboard 2.0.2 update from the App Store today.
