Flipboard arrives to Android slates with a full-blown tablet layout
The innovative Flipboard news reader passed twenty million active users this past summer, for just two years in existence. No wonder, considering how easy it makes following the hundreds of news bits we get inundated with every day.

After setting shop on the iPad, looking made for tablets, now Flipboard got updated with an Android tablet version, too. The app has been adapted to offer more, considering the larger screen realities of tablets like the Nexus 7 or the Nexus 10, or any other Android slate, for that matter.

On 10-inchers, for instance, Flipboard users can place more tiles on the screen now, making more content visible at once. All the other features, like a settings account and social network sharing we've grown accustomed to, stay in the tablet version as well, it is just the layout which takes better advantage of the larger displays.

Finally Flipboard realized that leaving aside half of the pie was not a good idea taking into account the progress apps like Google Currents and Pulse were exhibiting.
