For those of you patiently waiting for the popular Flipbard application, one of Google Currents‘ direct competitors, you’ll be happy to know that the app has finally made its way to the Android platform.  To kick things off, the app will be exclusive to Samsung Galaxy III devices initially before finally rolling out to the rest of the platform.  We weren’t told exactly how long the rest of the world will have to wait but we’ll do our best to find out for you.  The UI looks pretty similar to what the iPhone currently has today, and as expected, allows gestures for navigating through your aggregated content.  However, unlike the iPhone, the Android version will of course sport a cool widget which takes up an entire page providing the day’s latest and popular news feeds.  If you think you’ll most likely be on board come launch day, you can sign up at the link below to receive the update once the application is available for Android.  And by the way the devs stated the app will be available for “Android mobile phones” we’re not banking on a tablet version right off the bat.  So, here’s to hoping we don’t have to wait for the app too long.  And if we do, lets hope our boys over XDA will have something to say about it.  Are you looking forward to the app or are you content with Google Currents and other news aggregation apps already on the Android OS?
