Flipboard Finally Comes to Windows Phone, Download for Free
After having announced a year ago that Flipboard would come to Windows Phone, when the app was released for Windows 8, we finally get to see the app on the Windows Phone store. However, by the looks of it, it seems to be a test version.
Flipboard has finally launched its official first-party application for free in the Windows Phone store and you can follow this link to download it on your devices. However, various publications have been saying that this is just a test version for now.
Flipboard is one of the most known news aggregate app, mixing social network feeds with important news topics from publications around the world. Its name comes from the gesture that you use to progress through your news feed, using a flip-lick gesture to get to the next headline.
However, the current version of Flipboard for Windows Phone seems to be an early build and some features are missing from it. At the moment, we don’t know when is the final version slate for a release. Here’s its official description goes like:
“Flipboard is your personal magazine. An award-winning app used by millions every day, it is the best way to catch up on things happening around the world or dive deep into specific topics, from gadgets to grilling.
To begin, pick a few categories you want in your magazine. Then tap any tile to read specific things you’ve added or use Cover Stories, a quick way to browse highlights from all your topics. ”
“Use the search button to add more to your Flipboard. Use search to find iconic sources like CNN, Engadget, Elle or browse a variety of topics handpicked by our editorial team.
When you find a source or topic you enjoy, open the app bar to Follow it on your Flipboard and see highlights from that source in your Cover Stories. You can even pin Flipboard sources to your Windows Start screen, creating a shortcut to what you love and want to stay updated on. ”
What’s weird is that Flipboard doesn’t mention on its app description that this is an early build and not the final version. But for now, it seems to have a pretty good rating. We’ll let you know when the real deal hits the store.
