Flipboard is no longer exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy S III

We were all surprised to learn that Flipboard would be finally coming to Android as a Samsung Galaxy S III exclusive app. We also figured it would only be a matter of time before someone snatched the .apk file of Flipboard from the Galaxy S III and posted it for everyone to enjoy. We just didn’t think it would happen this quickly.

A member of the XDA forums that goes by the handle “Valcho” managed to get the Flipboard file from the Galaxy S III using the AirDroid application. He posted a download link to the file so anyone with an Android device can start Flipboarding right now.

From what we can tell, this is the real deal. The app feels very smooth, although load times for some stories take a little longer than expected.

Sorry Samsung, but you should have known there’s no such thing as exclusivity when it comes to Android apps.
