After months of wait, Flipboard has announced that it is updating its Android app to bring support for tablets. Until available only for Android smartphones, Flipboard now supports varied screen sizes of the Android tablets like Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and Galaxy Note 10.1.
The tablet layout is similar to the smartphone app layout, but now you will get the real usage of the extra screen space, not the zoomed version of smartphone optimised content.
“For this tablet edition of Flipboard, page layouts have been optimized for a variety of screen sizes and aspect ratios. Taking advantage of the wider screen of the larger Android devices, readers can save more of their favorite sections as tiles and can see larger story excerpts as they flip through their magazine. And having worked with Samsung over the last year, Flipboard is optimized for Samsung’s tablet devices,” company noted in a press release.
The version 1.9.13 is live now on Google Play and includes bug fixes.
