Can Flipboard and Google Plus work together?

Downloaded the new Flipboard Android app today to try it out. My main reason for doing so was the much discussed Google+ integration announced by Bradley Horowitz at LeWeb last Tuesday. (Great event btw. I was there and really enjoyed it.)Does Flipboard live up to the hype? In my humble opinion, yes. The app looks great and I enjoy "flipping" through the articles and posts. I hooked everything up ( FB, Twitter, G+, Reader, YouTube) and the result is great. TBH it takes a lot to get me away from the Google Reader app, which is still my favourite way to consume info, but Flipboard comes pretty close.The Google+ integration works for me and feels right. It's easy to share, +1 and comment while the look of the app easily matches the recently refreshed UI of the G+ App.Overall a definite +1 and recommended.To be continued.....

"we're taking volunteers to be considered for early upgrade to their local Google+ pages." "Please note that this is all still a test feature, so it's not for the faint of heart! Ready?,"
