In other words…

Flipboard is a news reader app that in integrates your social media and news in on place… 

Does it work?
Yes and very nicely at that. It’s pretty fast at updating your stories and social media. You can also post right from the app to your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google+, Linked-In, etc. 

- Beautiful UI
- Fast at updating Social media and Stories 
- Post and share from the app 
- Google + 

- Instagram doesn’t seem to work since the last Instagram update. (This will probably be fixed in the next Update for Flipboard) 
- No Notifications

My Thoughts 
I have used many news readers’ apps on android I have to say Pulse was my favorite until now. Flipboard is almost like combining Pulse, Google Currents, and TweetDeck into one. There are things I think they should improve on like adding notifications and making a bigger widget but overall it is my current favorite News Reader App…
