Apple Rehires Flipboard Co-Founder for Health Software Role
13 August 2016 Current Affairs: Apple Inc has rehired Flipboard Co-founder Evan Doll to work on health-related software after he quit Apple to found the digital news magazine app Flipboard.

 Doll had worked as a software engineer at Apple from about 2003 to 2009 and had helped develop the first iPhone operating system. Doll left Flipboard in October 2015 along with other executives of the startup.

Flipboard is a magazine-style news aggregator that launched in 2010, and was famously one of the first major iPad-only apps, though it would later come to other platforms like the iPhone.

 In recent months the app's thunder has been undermined by Apple News, which copies many of the same concepts but comes built into iOS 9.
