Flipboard makes a grand entrance on Android tablets, now supports landscape mode

by: Bams SadewoDecember 21, 2012
While the last few Flipboard months have been great, the newsreader app was far from ideal for Android tablet users, partly because it’s really designed for smartphones. The tablet-optimized version of the app is finally here.

Google Currents will be pre-installed on all Jelly Bean devices

by: LucianJuly 2, 2012

Chrome won’t be the only app coming pre-installed with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, although Chrome is actually meant to replace the stock Android browser, while Google Currents will be added to all the other Google apps, such as Gmail, Maps, Play Store, and so on.

Wired, The New Yorker to stop pushing Flipboard content due to poor ad sales

by: Mike AndriciJune 26, 2012

Just yesterday, Flipboard’s business was looking shiny and silky smooth as the popular news aggregation app announced a deal with the New York Times that would bring its users the full (Flipboard-formated) content from the prestigious paper.

In a bid to become the de facto newsreader app in the mobile industry, Flipboard has struck a deal with one of the world’s most renowned publications, the New York Times — making it the first major publisher to make its full content available on Flipboard.

You can probably tell that there’s a “but” coming, as the entire content of the newspaper will be accessible only for the paper’s digital subscribers, which includes articles, video, blog posts and more. Non-subscribers, as is the case with the iPhone and Android apps of the NYT, will only get access to several top stories.

Nevertheless, the deal will  give a huge boost for the start-up company, and it [...]
