Flipboard out now on Android, new features for iOS too

Flipboard is officially out of beta (and its short period of exclusivity on the Galaxy S III) and is now available as a free download (Google Play) for all Android users with compatible devices. The popular and innovative visual news reader app has previously established an extensive user-base on iOS devices and will now make its way on to Kindle Fire and Nook tablets as well. As with the iOS app, which also picks up some new features, Google + and YouTube video support has now also been added.

Google gave Flipboard special access to its API for Google+, which enabled the additional functionality. Users who have a Google+ account can now see all of their activity in circles in the trademark Flipboard magazine-style interface. Similarly, users can now also flip through their YouTube subscriptions include Most Viewed, Trending Videos and Top Favorites.

Additionally, Flipboard has also added support for other languages. Additional editions include Flipboard for Germany, Italy, Korea, Netherlands and Spain with a fully translated interface as well as reading recommendations offered by local curators.
