Flipboard now officially available for Android, brings new features
The free update comes to Android after a month of beta testing on a number of devices. It also was available after an Android user extracted the Flipboard APK and posted it on XDA Developers. McCue said it took some time getting Flipboard running on Android and is not yet ready to be used on Android tablets despite its origination as an Apple iPad app. Despite that, the phone app will be available for the Amazon Kindle Fire and the Nook tablets.

Well nice update......I was using the one which was ripped off from s3 though.
But I dont understand why ios gets all the great apps first and then android?let it be angry birds or instagram or ashphalt7 and now this. some great apps even dont show up on android....I think ios app development is easier than android because of many factors like developers has to deal with only 1 resolution and ios has better APIs...

Because it's more easy to develop an application on iOS devices because they are only few of them..

I wouldn't be surprised Apple pays Flipboard a "fee" to keep the app as an iPad exclusive being such a hit on that platform.
