Flipboard for Android Updated – Tutorials, Navigation Improvements and More
Flipboard for Android is one of those few apps that has seen a steady cycle of updates since its release a few months ago. The app has already undergone several updates since it first appeared on the Samsung Galaxy S3 back in May. Presently, the app has received another update to provide easier access.
The latest release deals with navigational improvements (in the form of dropdown menus when you tap on the name of the sections you're currently viewing), simplified access to Google Reader feeds, and the inclusion of in-app hints (similar to what you receive when starting the ICS or Jelly Bean home screen launcher for the first time) for those who are new to the magazine-style news aggregator.
Version 1.9.6 of Flipboard has also introduced shopping cart functionality for the Gilt Taste food section. This feature will let readers select and order treats directly within the app. Additionally, the usual tweaks and adjustments along with performance improvements and bug fixes are in place; however, the release notes don’t hint at anything specifically.
For those who are entirely new to the Flipboard, the app aims to bring together world news and social news in a beautiful magazine. By bringing together the world's stories combined with life's great moments, one can stay up to date with things that matter most. The option to flip through the news from Twitter as well as from outlets like the BBC, USA Today, and The Verge is also available.
The latest update is available via Google Play now.
