Flipboard is developed & launched for iOS for Apple products. This is like a digital magazine application, which combines all of your Facebook, Twitter, website news, articles, photos and more into one live feed for simple browsing from one dedicated place. Now this Apps is launched for Android Phones. Unfortunately it available only for Samsung Galaxy SIII was announced at SIII launch. Which means, you have to buy a Galaxy S III to get use of this application. Thankfully, one of the XDA user has managed to extract the application file ( .apk) from the device & upload it to XDA forum.
Now, in this post, I am going to share the steps involved to install Flipboard on your android device and how to activate. And don’t worry, it’s not malware, GSMArena tested it around the GSMArena office and it works fine.
1. Download the Flipboard.apk file
2. Copy Flipboard.apk to your Android Mobile SD Card
3. Make sure you’ve enabled Untrusted sources from Settings

Step 2 : Select the file by touching the file “Filpboard.apk” , it will pop up Application File Window
