Flipboard Arrives for Android Users
The personalized magazine app, Flipboard, is now available for Android phone users, according to ReadWriteWeb.com. Previously, this popular app was only available to iPhone and iPad users but has finally been ported for Android by a developer at XDA Forums.
It took nearly a year to develop Flipboard for Android. The app can be found at XDA Forum's site.
About.com announced it would provide content from its Twitter feed, homepage, and select content categories over Flipboard, the social magazine app designed specifically for iPad. Flipboard aggregates content from social networks and other publishers. The magazine-style interface will deliver hundreds of lifestyle articles to readers.
Android users are now able to enjoy what their iPhone counterparts have been able to use for quite some time: the popular magazine reading app Flipboard. According to Gigaom, once users sign up on the Android site, they will receive a link to join the beta version of Flipboard. While impatient users found ways to get around waiting for this beta test, which is the official launch of Flipboard for the Android format.
