A few apps either updated or made announcements recently, and 9to5Mac gathered the most noteworthy ones in our regular round up below. Today’s crop includes UI tweaks to popular iOS apps and even some new Flipboard stats in celebration of its second birthday. Per usual, we will continue to update this list throughout the day.

TuneIn Radio Pro for iOS | 99 cents
Version 2.8.1 hit today with new user-interface actions. Folks can now purchase songs by simply tapping the iTunes button on the Now Playing screen, and they can further save a station or artist by tapping the app’s Heart icon. This will add the desired content to their Favorites menu, which is accessible on any device with a free TuneIn account. The update requires iOS 4 and above.
Flipboard for iOS | Free
This news-aggregating app did not receive an update, but the service announced its second birthday today. Flipboard launched iPhone and smartphone editions last year, and since then it has “debuted features like Cover Stories, audio and shopping; added seven new social networks; forged partnerships with publishers like The New York Times, and localized into eight languages.” The most notable tidbit, however, is that Flipboard reached 20 million users. Moreover, it experiences one new users per second. Happy Birthday, Flipboard!
SongPop Free for iOS | Free
Version 1.2.47 landed last night and brought the free version up to speed with its $1.99 counterpart. Aside from performance enhancements and bug fixes, this music-based trivia game added the now-seemingly standard “Pull to Refresh” feature to its user-interface.
