Flipboard, the iOS app which “revolutionized publishing world” just announced launching an Android edition in China in the wake of the app made it to Google Play in its home turf.

In addition to Google Play, considering the fact that a vast majority of Chinese Android users choose 3rd party app markets over the original Google Play ‘for some reason’ (not saying it), Flipboard also partnered with two local Android app distributor — Wandoujia and AppChina — to promote the new edition.

Both were incubated by Kaifu Lee’s Innovation Works and raised tens of millions dollars in their previous fundings.

Wang Junyu, co-founder of Wandoujia said that “Flipboard and Wandoujia both aspire for a design concept of simplicity and elegance. We hope the partnership could promote the value of design among Chinese Android developers.”
