Flipboard arrives for Android with Google+ and YouTube

There are also new localized editions of the news aggregation app for Germany, Italy, South Korea, the Netherlands and Spain

Flipboard is now available for Android. The app, which aggregates content in a magazine-like format, also integrates content from Google+ and YouTube, a Flipboard blog post said on Friday.

The application can be downloaded from Google's Play store, Amazon's app store for the Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook App Store.

In the U.S., Flipboard will come pre-installed on Samsung's Galaxy S III smartphone when purchased from carriers including AT&T.

The integration of Google's social network allows users to see all the activity in their Circles in the application's magazine format. They can also "+1" any post from within the app (Google's version of Facebook's "like" button), or tap the status update to share, comment and reply, according to Flipboard.

Users are also able to flip through their YouTube subscriptions, uploads and favorites, or view feeds like Most Viewed, Trending Videos and Top Favorites, Flipboard wrote.

To further expand its distribution, Flipboard is now available in five new localized editions for Germany, Italy, Korea, Netherlands and Spain. The interface has been translated and there are reading recommendations chosen by local editors, according to Flipboard.

Flipboard has already been customized for Japan, France, China and English-speaking countries including the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia.

The company will continue to invest in localization, it said, without detailing what countries are up next.

The company will publish additional tips on using Flipboard with Google+ and YouTube on its blog in the coming days, it said.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
