    Shortly after the Samsung Galaxy S3 was announced the app that was supposed to be exclusive to that device was pulled and leaked to the entire net. That version of the app was developed specifically for the SGS3 and after installing it to such devices as the Transformer Prime and even my Galaxy Nexus it was clear that not much work had been put into making the app compatible with devices other than the Samsung Galaxy S3. Today Flipboard released their Beta version for all devices. This should work better than your leaked version but do keep in mind that it is Beta and the developers do need your feedback so check out the source link below, grab the file, and send your bug reports to android-feedback@flipboard.com

    Been using it for a few weeks now (the SGIII leak version), I love it. It looks amazing, and I absolutely love the widget. However, it needs to feature notifications and make tweeting easier to get to and stuff.

    I got my official version from Flipboard last night. Been running XDAs 1.8.4 but I had to use 7.17 to get Flipboard to send me their official 1.8.4.

    It seems like a cool app but has some work to do. I'd like to see it allow us to narrow down the news content to local news, just not national.

    When you click on the red ribbon and scroll all the way down, LOCAL NEWS is there. Then you select what you want. You can still add in your tiles a manual search.
