Flipboard, the popular Social Magazine for smartphone is now available for Android with the Galaxy S3. Flipboard app has been a huge hit with iOS users and now Android users can enjoy it’s benefits. Even though this popular social magazine app has been an exclusive for the S3 but all thanks to some developers efforts, the app’s APK is available for other Android smartphones and tablets.
Flipboard creates a personalized magazine out of everything being shared with you. With this app, you can flip through your Facebook newsfeed, tweets from your Twitter timeline, photos from Instagram friends and so on. However the unofficial Flipboard app does not run smoothly and issues related to slow content loading, no landscape support and zooming have cropped up.
However the curiosity generated among Android users for an app that had found its stardom on iOS devices is certainly above all these issues. Also developers want to make sure that the experience of using Flipboard on Android will be on par to that of iOS. Thus it doesn’t hurt if we ask when will a fully-fledged Flipboard app for all Android devices with their wide range of screen resolutions roll out?
Android users have been quiet lucky so as to have a taste of Flipboard on non-Galaxy S3 smartphones and tablets but it may still take some time before a final build of Flipboard rolls out without any issues. After Android users received the APK leak out, news is in that now the beta APK is finally officially available from Flipboard itself.
Users who have signed up for the beta are receiving a link to download the beta APK now, while those who are signing up now will receive a message that they should get their download link within 24 hours. This move will allow developers to get feedbacks from early adopters and make the required improvements without complains from unhappy users.
The Flipboard beta APK is now available on the
can download it from the app file link. Thus users now have the option to run an official Flipboard app in their device even if it is still in beta with some minor shortcomings.
