Flipboard for Android comes out of beta, gets Google+ and YouTube integration

Flipboard first made an appearance on Android exclusively on the Galaxy S III through a partnership with Samsung. Soon after that they released a beta for other Android phones to those who had signed up on their websites.

After a couple of months of beta testing, the final build of the app is now available on the Google Play Store, Amazon Appstore and the Barnes & Noble Nook store. On the Galaxy S III in the US, the app will come pre-installed from all the carriers.

Compared to its initial release, Flipboard has added couple of major features to the app, including support for Google+ and YouTube. With Google+ integration, you will be able to see all your friend’s posts in Flipboard’s unique format and also be able to +1, share or comment on them. Signing into YouTube puts all your subscribed videos in your Flipboard feed and you can click on them to watch them in the YouTube app on your phone.

If you’re an iOS user, the new changes are also available to you through an update which you can download from the App Store.

As before, Flipboard for Android is completely free and can be downloaded from here.
