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.
