Flipboard for Android Leaked

Do you want to know how you can tell an app is popular? It’s when hackers take the time to copy off of a device the moment it ships to consumers. Flipboard for Android debuted on the new Samsung Galaxy SIII, which debuted last week. It was supposed to be an exclusive for at least a short period of time, but someone should have gotten the okay of the Android hackers.

Earlier today, one industrious hacker decided to share the app with everyone. He took a few minutes with his Galaxy SIII and extracted the Flipboard app and then posted it over at XDA Forums. It’s only been available for around 8 hours and the app has already been downloaded over 15 thousand times.
