Flipboard goes Daydreaming with latest update

If you’re a fan of the screensaver feature on Android 4.2, you’ll be happy to hear that the latest version of the newsreader app allows you to view Flipboard covers on Daydream. What else is new?
January 12, 2013

Daydream is one of the many features that Android 4.2 Jelly Bean comes with, one that lets your device display pretty pictures and colors, BeanFlinger, and news from Google Currents while it’s being charged or docked. If you’re a fan of the screensaver feature, you’ll be happy to hear that you can now take Flipboard to go Daydreaming with you.

The latest version of Flipboard supports Android 4.2 Daydream feature. Once installed, you’ll get a new option on Daydream to show your Flipboard covers. Since they will be only displaying headlines, you can simply tap on the cover to go straight to the app.


The update should also put a stop to those frequent accidental page flips when what you’re actually trying to do is scroll up or down, a problem that seems to affect those who run the newsreader app in tablet mode. As part of the update, there’s also the usual bug fixes.

It goes without saying that only Android 4.2 users will see the Daydream feature. Hit the Google Play link below to get the Flipboard update.
