It’s finally here! The highly anticipated Flipboard app for Windows 8.1. We have been teased about this app since June during Microsoft’s annual BUILD developer conference, but the wait is over.
“Flipboard is your personal magazine. It is the most popular way to catch up on the news you care about, read stories from around the world and browse the articles, videos and photos friends are sharing. To begin, pick a few topics and tap any of the tiles to begin flipping through your personal magazine,” the app description reads.
Flipboard for Windows 8.1 supports Live Tiles and Snap, much like typical Windows 8.1 apps do. The Live Tile will display the latest stories directly on your Start Screen. You can connect Flipboard to up to twelve social networks, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Google+.
You can also read “Cover Stories”which showcases popular items from everything you’ve added to your Flipboard. The app is available in localized editions for the following countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Latin America, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, US and UK.
The official Flipboard app for Windows Phone 8 is set to be released at a later date, but no word on exactly when. Hit the download link below to snag the app for free. Share your thoughts about the app in the comments below!
