Flipboard is getting some media mileage this week. A couple of days ago, it was announced that it will be integrating Google+ soon. And just now, the app has just achieved another milestone – it is now available on Google Play and available for all Android devices including the Kindle Fire and Nook. In case you forgot, Flipboard for Android was previously available only for the Samsung Galaxy S3. But of course, this did not prevent on Android users to source out the APK file of the app. But no need for that anymore. You can download the app now directly from Google Play, Amazon AppStore, Nook Store and even from Samsung Apps.
The official availability of the app will also trigger an update to existing users since, the app was modified a bit to bring new features such as YouTube integration. This means you can now watch, favorite, bookmark and even comment on YouTube videos without leaving the app. Aside from this, Flipboard is also adding support for more localized versions particularly for Korea, The Netherlands, Italy, Spain and Germany. This is in addition to the localized version of the app for China, Japan and France.
If you haven’t tried Flipboard yet, now is the right time to do so. It’s one of the most sought after news reader app for iOS devices and I’m pretty sure the same will happen for the Android version of the app.
