Flipboard for Android


Flipboard, one of the more popular news reading and content consumption app, previously available and adored by iOS users, became hugely popular over time. In fact, we think it’s one of the best apps for the job right now, leaving its elder sibling Pulse weeping in its wake.

Initially launched as an iPad app, it made its way to iPhones and iPod touch devices in November last year with a unique Cover Stories interface, which collects and displays all your recent photo uploads, shared articles and status updates from select social networks. We were teased about this in the Samsung Galaxy S3 reveal, and have been rife with anticipation ever since. It’s finally here.

Flipboard for Android is finally available for download in Google’s Play Store. This social news-reading app that converts web content to magazine — like interface was only available on iOS devices until recently. The Android version of the app can also be downloaded from Amazon App store as well as Nook Apps for users of Kindle Fire and Nook tablet in the United States and Samsung Apps worldwide.

The company has also announced that Flipboard app now allows addition of Google Plus and Youtube accounts along with the existing Facebook and Twitter accounts. “Today we have over 2000 featured content partners from around the world and, now with the addition of Google Plus and YouTube, we have all of the popular social networks for our readers to sit back and enjoy,” said Mike McCue, CEO of Flipboard.
