Official Flipboard Beta Now Available For Android

Eric McBride


Back when the Samsung Galaxy S3 was announced, Samsung stated that Flipboard would be an exclusive app for their new flagship device, and that availability for other devices would take place in the “coming months”. Since then, the device has been leaked (via XDA) for those who wanted an early taste, but luckily for Android users, Flipboard decided yesterday to release the beta APK to the public.

If you happened to sign up for the beta, you should receive a download link for the APK file in the next 24 hours. If you didn’t happen to sign up and don’t feel like waiting, you can grab the official APK from the Verge here (no word yet on when it will arrive in the Google Play Store). 

Here's another Flipboard screenie from my Galaxy Nexus:

What do you guys think of Flipboard so far? Is it something you could see yourself using often?

    From what i see in this review...YES...i could see myself using it quite frequently! can't wait to get some actual time working with it personally!

    The APK I downloaded from the Verge was only 2.49MB, so no worries Ti Mo :-D

    @James - I have to admit that Im really starting to like it! It takes a while to setup, but it really is easy on the eyes.

    Yeah well the apk from xda was only 3 MB or so too and my phone said it was 40 MB that's why I un installed it Oo
    I like pulse better anyways. Flip board has like a million new news every second

    Pulse is awesome, but I prefer Taptu lately. Not really sure why I do. They are more or less the same.
