Flipboard for Android available !

Flipboard, the extremely popular and visually impressive news and RSS reader, was for a long time an app only available for iOS, before being an exclusive one for the Samsung Galaxy S III for a few weeks and being in beta stages for other Android devices.

The socially-enabled news reader app pulls in content from RSS, Facebook and Twitter, and – thanks to a deal announced this week – adds Google+ to that list.  This partnership is really curious when we know that GOOGLE has launched “Currents” this year, an application for Android devices, iPads and iPhones that lets you explore online magazines and other content with the swipe of a finger, really similar to Flipboard.

Flipboard for Android is now a free download for the Play Store. It is compatible with all Android 2.2 and higher devices, though currently optimized for smartphones rather than tablets.

If you’ve already spent time with Flipboard on iPad, you will be very familiar with this app which is quite similar. Basically, it features a large rectangular Cover Stories panel showing highlighted recent articles, and smaller square panels that showcase the latest articles from the sources to which you’ve subscribed.

However there are two differences between the iPad version and the Android version of Flipboard:

1. You navigate the Flipboard for Android interface by swiping up or down, not horizontally as with Flipboard for iPad. The change is a welcome, as it feels more natural to navigate with your thumb when using a phone.

2. Flipboard for Android only displays one article block per screen—the iPad version shows multiple, which is obvious compared to the screen size!

Also note that Flipboard for Android offers a dedicated YouTube section that lets you view popular videos, or subscribe to a channels simply by tapping the “+” icon located next to a channel’s name.
