Well iOS 9 is here and it's the most minor major — or maybe the most major minor — upgrade to the Apple's mobile software in recent memory. But there are a few brand spanking new apps to talk about, and one of the big ones is Apple News.
Nope, you can't escape advertising. Flipboard, the gorgeous mobile reading app with over 100 million users, will now start showing you full-page video ads as you try to catch up on your reading.
During Nokia World 2013, Flipboard announced it would be bringing its popular social news reader to the Windows ecosystem, starting with the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet (read our first impressions of the device here.)

Flipboard — the social reading app for iOS and Android — has just announced that New York Times subscribers will be able to read all the paper's content through the app, on any platform, from this Friday onwards. That's a big deal for the New York Times, Flipboard and readers alike.
The Android iteration of the social reading app Flipboard was supposed to be a Samsung Galaxy S III exclusive. As it turns out, not so much. The app has popped up for download on the XDA Developers forum, and it appears to be installing on a handful of current and previous generation Android handsets and tablets.

It's not as spectacular on the iPhone as it is on the iPad. But what do you expect when you take a tabloid magazine and turn it into a 'zine?
