Flipboard has finally officially released its app for Android devices. This exclusive Apple app is now available for Android users including the Kindle Fire users.
The beta version of Flipboard was released in Google Play Store for Android users about a month ago. Mike McCue, Flipboard's CEO was astonished to see the demand for the Android version of Flipboard. More than half million users downloaded the beta version of this app. "We've had really good coverage across a wide range of phones. We feel really good about how it's coming together," McCue said.
People were surprised why Flipboard is taking so long to release the app officially. "With iOS, you can target a very specific screen size, a very specific processor and so on - it's quite a bit easier," McCue explained. Creating an Android app is not easy as work as the app has to work on all the Android devices with different screen size and resolution. The official version supports almost all the devices.
Flipboard is also ready to release YouTube and Google+ integration with its app. Users will be able to share, comment and mark their favorite videos using this feature in Flipboard. This app is also going to be available in localized version for Spain, Germany, Korea and The Netherlands.
"A lot of people are choosing us every single day, multiple times per day. This is very encouraging for us especially since we don't do a lot with sending emails out to users, and we don't do lots of noisy notifications," McCue said. But the company has plans for adding push notifications in the future. People interested in trying out this app can download it from here.
