Android Flipboard Now Available for Everyone (a Bit of DIY Required)

By Gary Cutlack on at

The Android Flipboard app, which was supposed to be arriving alongside Samsung's new Galaxy S III, has leaked into the public domain, giving Android users a chance to experience the iOS news reading phenomenon ahead of schedule.

We've just given it a quick whirl and it's working perfectly on an old Android 2.3 phone here, with all the fancy page transition scroll effects that won over the iOS users when it launched. You're even able to select a region and have it serve some UK news stories too, so it's a properly usable version.

To get it working, download the APK installation file from the XDA forum link there. [XDA via GSM Arena]
