Flipboard Finally Arrives for Android Users

Illustration for article titled Flipboard Finally Arrives for Android Users

Though Flipboard was originally supposed to be a Samsung Galaxy S III exclusive, the social reading app landed on Android today.


It showed up last month on the XDA-Developers forum, but now Flipboard is official. It's available now as a free download from Google Play. It also works on the Nook and the Kindle Fire, and S III owners will still get a little special treatment—it comes preloaded on certain devices. The app condenses all the Twitter feeds and publications you follow into one spot, so you can find that New Yorker article you wanted to read along with that Fader story you saved without having to dig around to find them. The new version also includes support for Google+ (not that you care) and YouTube. It's a great little app, and its arrival on Android has been a long time coming. [PCMag]

WooHoo!!! Flipboard is the bees knees, their CEO Mike McCue really mixes it up on Twitter too, he's responded to a bunch of my tweets and works hard to grow the Flipboard user base. Best UX experience ever for web news.
