During the presentation of Samsung Galaxy S III we learn that Flipboard was developing a version for Android. Days after the APK of the recognized social magazine leaked unofficially on the web, but was soon replaced by an official beta version.
After some weeks of waiting the stable version of Flipboard Android is now available in Google Play Store . The application is compatible with a wide variety of devices and provides an interesting and varied catalog of content in Spanish.
While betas are highlighted by a great stability, Flipboard for Android offers to highlight performance improvements. Also debuting integration with Google + which was announced earlier this week, including “Best of Google +” in the Highlights section of the week.
At a quick glance we can “blame” are translations into Spanish incomplete . When navigating through the menus of the app are several sectors that are still in English or who were halfway between a language and another. But surely be fixed in future updates.
If you have the beta on your smartphone or tablet is possible that any issues arise during the installation of the final edition. If this happens, uninstall the development version and try again. At the end of the post is the download link that Google will Play Store.

Over the past year Google has done everything possible to add new users to Google +, including a much more attractive from the mobile arena. But most important is yet to come, as the social network developed in Mountain View will join Flipboard .
The news was confirmed by Vice Google product management, Bradley Horowitz at Le Web ’12. It is an interesting move that will surely get the attention of a large number of Internet users still do not feel very attached to G +.
The integration of Google’s social network will come from Flipboard hand new APIs developed by the search engine giant. These were expanded to allow users to access photos, videos and other data without entering in Google +. Horowitz did not elaborate so we’ll have to wait until the beginning of Google I / O.
The new partnership between Google + Flipboard and makes us wonder what will happen to Google Currents. This “social player” was born as a competitor to Flipboard, but despite their good intentions did not win too much importance to the public. For now not entirely clear what will happen with the development or support of this platform with updates, but we could also have news on Google I / O.
Leveraging its participation at Le Web ’12, Bradley Horowitz said Google + never incorporate advertising . It’s clearly good news for Internet users who prefer a social experience “cleaner”. What do you think of the new proposals planned by the Mountain View giant for social networking
