The much awaited Flipboard’s Android update has been rolled out on a global platform a couple of weeks ago. Flipboard version 2.0 was first made available to download for iOS users in March. The new Android version of this application allows people to create and organize their own personalized virtual magazine for absolutely free.

Android users would now be able to share and edit their own aspiring feeds with contents, images and videos on their board to make them look like their own visualized publication. They can even set privacy controls on their magazines for public and private viewing and can also share it with friends via social networks. Earlier, board users’ could have only read through the content and feeds that had been previously posted by the editorial team of Flipboard. But with this update they can personalize it according to their own taste and preferences.

The Andriod users were previously restricted to the limited ‘read only’ functionality of the magazines that were created on iOS. Whereas now, the Android users are on par with iOS users, as in, they also have the same ability –  to create their own collective articles, images and various add ons, for giving a materialize appearance to their boards.

The Flipboard has recorded an astonishing 500,000 magazines having being created and personalized within first two following weeks of the launch of the application version 2.0 on iTunes for Apple users. With the UK, US and Canada emerging among the top five countries, where the users have downloaded and used this application to create magazines.
