Flipboard finally released for Android
After being exclusively available on iOS devices, Flipboard finally comes to Android!
Flipboard creates a personalized magazine out of everything being shared with you. Flip through your Facebook newsfeed, tweets from your Twitter timeline, photos from Instagram friends, sounds from SoundCloud and much more.
Fill Flipboard with the things you like to read, from niche blogs to publications like Rolling Stone and Lonely Planet, and use Instapaper or Readability to save articles to read later.
Flipboard creates a single place to enjoy, browse, comment on and share all the news, photos and updates that matter to you.
In addition to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, you can flip through your newsfeeds and timelines from Google Reader, LinkedIn, SoundCloud, Tumblr, Flickr, 500px, Sina Weibo and Renren on Flipboard.
