What does it take to design a Flipboard-like iOS app

I'm learning iOS development and want to build an interactive magazine app like Flipboard, which doesn't seem too complex. I know I can build something comperable with UIWebView but I'd rather learn how to build an interactive native app.

Can anyone tell me what high level client-side iOS Frameworks are involved so I can focus on learning them? (Animation, Navigation...) Any articles or code samples would be even better.

Thanks

If you want to keep it simple, Apple's built in UIPageViewController will get you most of the way. There are a number of open source FlipBoard-style transition libraries. Two that have come through my feeds before (although I haven't used either in anger) are:
