Flipboard Works on the ASUS Transformer TF700

It is unfortunately more and more common for applications to be incompatible with certain devices. There are a number of reasons for this, but the big two are either that the hardware is incompatible or you live in a region where that application isn’t offered. Sometimes, an application is blocked from installing through Google Play on a particular device even if it works perfectly. An example of this is how ASUS Transformer TF700 owners can’t install Flipboard from the Google Play Store. That doesn’t mean they can’t install it with positive results through other means.

XDA Senior Member Pretoriano80 has posted a thread with the APK for Flipboard for TF700 owners. There are no tricks to installing it it, simply download and side load with your favorite file manager. You don’t even need root. Despite not being available in the Play Store, the application works perfectly well, and users are having no issues. So far the only annoyance is that Flipboard is stuck in portrait mode by default. There have been suggestions as to how to get it to go landscape, but each solution only works for a few.

If that doesn’t bother you, though, head to the original thread to download it. The APK isn’t modified in any way. So if you have a different device that isn’t getting the Flipboard magic, you could likely use this APK for your device as well.

And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
