Once the official Instagram Android app finally hit the Google Play Store
last moth, most users (including me) set their sights on another popular iOS-exclusive app, Flipboard
– an elegant, customizable magazine style news and social feed reader. Just last week, along with the announcement of the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III, came the news that Flipboard will be debuting on Android as an SGS III-exclusive app. Now, unless you’re one of the lucky few to-be
owners of said device, chances are bleak that you’ll be getting a taste of Flipboard on your Android any time soon. That said, XDA member, Valcho
, seems to have completely different plans, as he has managed to pull the APK of the much sought-after news reader from his Galaxy S III (a test unit, presumably). So, albeit not officially, Flipboard for Android is now available for download, and is ready to give Google Currents a good run for its money in the race of the best news reading Android apps. Update:
A fully tablet-optimized version of Filpboard for Android is now officially available on the Google Play Store. We've added a link to its Play Store page at the end.
