Flipboard for Android is set to officially début on the Galaxy S III when it launches May 29 in Europe, as we learned during Samsung’s press event earlier this month. However, before the app even launches, the currently iOS-exclusive Flipboard has leaked to those looking to install the social-network aggregation/magazine-format application on their Android device. Version 1.8.4 was pushed today— to those who have downloaded— in the form of an over-the-air update. As The Verge noted, the update brings a fix for the app crashing on older versions of Android and other performance enhancements, but some users are findng errors when trying to update. Nonetheless, it looks like Sammy is getting Flipboard ready for its official Android début.
