Flipboard for Android is finally available for download on the Google Play Store. Flipboard was first announced at the Galaxy SIII event and was to launch exclusively on Android with the SIII. While that went as planned, the application file was leaked onto the Internet allowing pretty much anyone with an Android device to use it before it launched. It wasn’t until a couple weeks later that the application was released as an official beta for all to try out without some sort of trickery.
Flipboard is a social news reader which allows you to log into your Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ accounts and get a visual look at updates from your friends and people you follow. The application is named after the flipping action of which users perform to go through posts. In addition, users can add news feeds, whether it be ones Flipboard created or ones from your Google Reader account. The application originally launched as an iPad app and then made it’s way to iPhone, and now Android.
