Flipboard For Android App Update Rolls Out Tablet Support And More
Flipboard has rolled out a new updated to their Android application this week which brings with it support for Android tablets, with page layouts which have been optimised for a variety of screen sizes and aspect ratios.
The new tablet edition of Flipboard, takes advantage of the wider screen of the larger Android devices, enabling readers to save more of their favorite sections as tiles and see larger story excerpts as they flip through their magazine articles.
However the new updated will automatically roll out, and anyone with a Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1, GALAXY Tab series, Nexus 10 or other tablet that runs Android, can download Flipboard for free from the Google Play Store with support for the larger screen size.
“With the new devices that Samsung, Amazon and others have brought to market in the recent months, we see the adoption of Android tablets growing quickly,” said Eric Alexander, Head of International Development at Flipboard. “As more people buy Android tablets for themselves or others over the holidays, we wanted to make sure Flipboard is part of their tablet experience and deliver on a top request from our readers.”
