It was just over three weeks ago when we learned that Flipboard was already looking to expand beyond a Galaxy S III exclusive, and reach out to the rest of the Android community. That meant the start of a beta testing period, which the app’s developers would use to ensure compatibility with a wide swath of devices upon the final release. Well, it looks like they got the data they needed, and Fliboard for Android is now available in the major app stores.

Beyond just the public launch of the Android port, today also marks Flipboard expanding its compatibility with online services to include YouTube and Google+. Now content from bot those service can be involved in the app’s aggregation process, with it retrieving and presenting such elements to you in the Flipboard’s stylistic magazine format.

This also marks the arrival of good news for international Flipboard fans, as the app gets new editions for Germany, Italy, South Korea, The Netherlands, and Spain. Beyond just a simple translation job, these localized versions include content hand-selected by editors for each region.

Beyond Google Play, Flipboard for Android is also available in Amazon’s Appstore, as well as B&N’s Nook Store.
