Flipboard from Galaxy S III leaks - working on various devices

The Galaxy S III may be scheduled for release as early as May 29th in Europe and whilst it boasts a few interesting exclusive applications, an XDA user by the name of "Valcho" was able to rip the Flipboard news application and share it with the rest of the world prior to the Galaxy S III release date.

Flipboard combines the most popular news posts in categories which the user selects on the first use of the application. Flipboard is even able to find news from Facebook and Twitter and incorporates relevant posts into the respective feeds. The ripped application does work on other devices and we can confirm that the application isn’t tied to the Samsung Touchwiz framework. We have tried this on everything from a Nexus S, HTC One X and a Galaxy S II running CyanogenMod 9 (pictured below).

Flipboard can be found on the XDA Developers Forum where the thread owner states that he or her will most-likely try and rip more applications such as S-voice at a later date should he get a hold of the Galaxy S III again.
