For those who are unfamiliar, Flipboard is a magazine-style app that helps to curate news from various sources based on topics that might interest you. While there are many other similar news-style apps available, the magazine layout of Flipboard with its images makes it a bit more attractive and easier on the eyes.
Now the good news for Windows Phone users is that if you were looking forward to getting the official Flipboard app on your phone, you might be pleased to learn that the developers behind the app have recently announced that the Windows Phone version should be coming soon.
This is thanks to a sighting of the app in the Windows Phone Store which was presumably a private beta release. In a statement Flipboard released to Nokia Power User, they wrote, “We are working on a Windows Phone version of Flipboard. While we don’t have an exact date for you, it’s on our roadmap and should be available soon. Please stay tuned for updates and announcements.”
Flipboard had first started out as an iOS exclusive before it made its way onto Android as an exclusive to Samsung’s Galaxy S3 during its launch. The developers have confirmed that a Windows Phone version was in the works, but we guess this is the closest we’ve seen to it being released.
