Another app that was exclusive to Apple’s mobile devices is expanding to Google’s Android platform and elsewhere. What’s unusual in particular about this app, Flipboard, is that the company behind it was co-founded by a former Apple employee who worked on the iPhone.
The Android version of the app will come installed on Samsung’s Galaxy S III on each of the major American carriers: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile USA and Sprint, the company said. The move might create tension between the start-up and Apple, which handpicked Flipboard as one of its favorite apps of 2010. But Flipboard said it was necessary to expand the app’s audience.MOBILE
