For a short Beta testing period social news magazine Flipboard was available only for Android 4.0-powered Samsung Galaxy S3 devices. This is no longer the case – the team behind Flipboard announced today (Friday, June 22, 2012) that the app has been rolled out to the Google Play Store so that Android users from all over the world can get it.

Or to put it in other words, the Flipboard social news magazine app is available for free in the Google Play Store and anyone with a device powered by Android 2.2 or better can get it. You can search for the app on Google Play Store yourself, or more conveniently, you can just click this link to go get the app.

The Google Play Store (formerly known as the Google Android Market) isn’t the only place where you can find the Flipboard app for Android. It has also been rolled out to the Amazon Appstore for Android, the Barnes & Nobles NOOK Store, and Samsung Apps.

I mentioned above that there was a time when Flipboard was available exclusively for Samsung Galaxy S3 devices. It must be added that if you get a Galaxy S3 from a leading US carrier, Flipboard will be pre-installed on the device.

If you’re not familiar with the Flipboard app, let me give you a quick explanation: the app pulls information from social media and various other sites and presents it to you in magazine format; you can easily flip through the stories, news, posts, and photos the app presents to you.

“People are amazed by all the things they can see on Flipboard, and often the most personal and interesting stories come from friends,” said Mike McCue, CEO of Flipboard. “Today we have over 2000 featured content partners from around the world and, now with the addition of Google+ and YouTube, we have all of the popular social networks for our readers to sit back and enjoy.”

Additional information on the Flipboard app is available on its official website here.
