Flipboard for Android Updated to Support Daydream
Flipboard pushed out an update of its Android application over the weekend that adds support for the Daydream feature in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Daydream is an active screensaver for Android 4.2 devices that runs when the device is plugged in or docked. Now that Flipboard supports this feature, Android 4.2 device owners will be able to see their Flipboard headlines appear on their screen live as they are published. Daydream has limited support for third-party apps at the moment, and Flipboard is one of the few. The update also fixes a number of bugs.
