Flipboard: Your News Magazine compiles news, social updates, and all your favorite topics into a gorgeous, easy-to-flip-through magazine. This hugely popular app can change the way you read your favorite content, as well as encourage you to read more.

Pros

Fantastic design: Flipboard: Your News Magazine smartly arranges content into a stylish magazine-style format, so that using it feels like you're reading a sleek virtual magazine. You'll love the image-based front cover, the great flipping effect, and the effortless left-and-right swiping gestures for quick navigation.

Great reading experience: Enjoying your favorite sites and feeds through this beautiful, magazine-themed app is a lot more entertaining than using a standard RSS reader or manually visiting Web pages.

Lets you save favorites: You can save any article or news item and add it to a custom magazine, so that you can easily store all your favorite content in one place and easily review it later. For avid readers, this proves more effective than merely bookmarking content.

Cons

Ads within content: You won't catch any sign of banners or other ads at first, but once you start reading, you'll notice full-page ads integrated into the content, just like they would appear in a conventional magazine.

Requires online access: You can't view saved content or access any of the app's main features offline. Also, if you don't have a good connection, content retrieval (especially for image-based articles) can be slow.

Bottom Line

One of the most visually appealing apps in the Google Play store, Flipboard: Your News Magazine brings you a remarkable reading experience on your smartphone or tablet. You'll just love the way it looks and feels. If you enjoy reading -- whether you prefer news, tutorials and tips, or general articles -- this is a must-have app.
