Google Currents. Flipboard already edged out one competitor that hadn’t even made it to Android yet, as Yahoo!’s Livestand was deadpooled just six months after its debut. Flipboard has also been proactive with its international growth, identifying China as its most promising market in the coming year. It’s expected that downloads of Flipboard in China will exceed U.S. downloads soon, as China’s market has already matched the U.S. in just six months. Considering China’s massive Android market, Flipboard has even more incentive to work on Android-ready versions of its app.
