Flipboard in the works for Windows Phone

Flipboard in the works for Windows Phone
Yesterday, Flipboard said that it was working on a Windows 8 version of its app, but it didn't mention if users should expect the popular magazine-style news app to make it to Windows Phone or not. Today, the company has clarified its plans, and Windows Phone users can get excited, because Flipboard will be coming to your devices.

Flipboard developer Jason Pearson cleared it all up saying in an e-mail:

There is a bit of a wait involved though, because the Windows 8 version of the app is not expected until later this year. But, at least it sounds like we should expect the app to be made available for Windows 8, Windows RT, and Windows Phone 8.

Yeah finally some big names showing up in Windows Phone Store. I think the whole credit goes to Nokia foe pushing their Lumia's so hard.

You can edit after you post, but there is a time limit, and you can't edit if someone else comments. It's not the best system, but I guess the idea is to avoid you writing something like "I love Android", getting people to agree, then editing it to "I love big wangs"

Hopefully Dropbox get a Windows phone version soon. It's my most used app (plus, developers integrate it into there apps because of its amazing API's. No other company has such a easy to use API when it comes to syncing to the cloud).

Awesome! But we need more, we need more famous apps (and games of course) to kill those "endangered species" a.k.a "WP has no apps and games" trolls.

It's a news reader. Install it and you'll know. At least you can look it up in the app store...

It's a great app, you should try it. It's one of the main reasons why I actually like Blinkfeed on the HTC One.
