    More ads than news. App is almost useless. Only exciting thing is your bi-weekly updates and me trying to figure out what you've changed for the worse. Your recent update will not allow articles to load. Yes, I've deleted the appropriate things, restarted the app, still doesn't work. If I click view on web I can access it that way. Thanks! 2 stars to 1...

    While Flipboard is good at aggregating news and is easily customizable the biggest drawback is the HUGE amount of data it sucks up. This app is a DATA HOG! Even with minimal usage while roaming it consistently consumes an average of 70%-80% of my monthly data plan. IMO it's because of the amount of ads it lets through and lack of control to block them. Altho does have a very crude control to stop videos\images from loading it renders the app useless since it's too difficult to know the content.

  3. Dustin Lineweber-avatar

    Trashy, misleading ads that you have no way to report. Many don't even take you to the advertiser when you click them, so I would think even advertisers wouldn't be happy about the ad experience they are paying to be a part of. An example is weekly penny, which are pretty much fake android security apps. At the request of the developer, I'll note one of the specific shady ads here: MiracleWatt... Promises if you plug it in and it will save 90% on your power bill. Come on, Flipboard. Ban that.

  4. Anthony Hung-avatar

    Going downhill quick. Used to be good for reading news. Now most articles are videos, ads and click bait. You can tune your feed, but it does not work, you still get articles from muted sources. The app crashes multiple times after swiping for something to read, and when you do fine something, the app has issues loading the pages. You either get a black screen or it crashes. Also a lot of articles are locked behind a pay wall for their site. Look for something else, this app is a waste of time.

    Before you even think about using this app take a good long look at their privacy, or I should say lack of privacy settings. I might as well give them the log in information for every thing I do on my phone. It is beyond annoying to see pop up after pop up of my shopping from other websites. I just looked at it. I don't want to see it again. This is disgusting. Used the be an excellent source of news. Show some respect.

    I used Flipboard since its very humble beginnings. It was reliable most of the time. A glitch here and there but nothing serious. Until last update yesterday... Now it's unusable: it keeps crashing almost immediately after launching. Restarting device doesn't help. Cleaning cache doesn't help. I have plenty of storage and RAM. Android 10 with its latest updates. Everything else seems to work fine. Any idea on how to make it work again? I would gladly downgrade. UPDATE: Flipboard started to work again after an hour or so. The cause remains unknown. Trying to send the feedback seems to be challenging as well. I received (several times): "Something went wrong! Please reload and try again. We're sorry for the inconvenience." Weird...

    Update : This was a problem with an Android update not Flipboard. Good customer service that the developer got back to me. Original post : 'Unfortunately, Flipboard has stopped working'. Yes, and it means I can't work either! Everyone I try to use a search engine or access my emails I get this message and it immediately defaults to the home screen. I can't seem to remedy it as it does the same thing when I use the app manager. Help please!

    Over the last few weeks of March 2021, my Flipboard categories and feed pages seem to have become more dominated by ads and less stable. As of this morning, even after updating the app to the newest version, Flipboard crashes before the app's homescreen even appears. This was my "go to" news and information app for many years. Very disappointing. Now, I am looking for an alternative app.

    Ted Theodore Logan


    App was ok a few years back. I don't mind the ads because it's free but it's now filled with national enquire type "what ever happened to 'some random actor's name.." type articles. Even when you choose what you want to see it doesn't show up on the main page you must select an category to see. Another thing is the super high battery usage for some reason, like 13% per hour!? Nice... spamming my emails after I give a review. Uninstalled.

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled Flipboard several times and am still having issues with it. Although it no longer crashes, I am unable to like any of the articles. When I try to hit the heart button it goes to the share page. Fix this issue and I'll edit my review.

  11. M M-avatar

    Very annoying ads, including ones that blackout the screen. Other ads play sound unexpectedly that sometimes cannot be stopped except by existing the app. Worse, some ads automatically send you to sites that security software identifies as being malicious. Beyond that, there are nasty comments that they do a very poor job of blocking so it's basically a propaganda site.

    Reduced to 2 stars from 5 stars. Latest update has stopped pictures downloading at article summary stage which detracts a great deal from the user experience. I deinstalled and reinstalled the App but no change. I use a Galaxy S9, my wife uses a Samsung phone and we both have the same annoying problem.

  13. Brian F-avatar

    Brian F


    I've enjoyed Flipboard for a long time, but a recent change has made it so that if you navigate to a link within an article, you can no longer select to share that new page or use the "view on web" feature. I'm always clicking links in articles to learn more and follow the rabbit hole where it leads, so this change is very frustrating

  14. J Jackson-avatar

    J Jackson


    Use to enjoy the app. Now I find that it opens pages without me selecting it. Then there are pages I select but it won't open, just a blank loading page. Almost ready to depart...my device is a Note 8 and my buddy says her Note 10 is doing the same. Different providers.

    Why is this app not working similar to my samsung note device on my samsung tablet? it just auto flips through screens and i cant click on any of them! Flip to the right and it just shows all the topic boxes. I cant flip across topics

  16. Reza Dizaji-avatar

    Reza Dizaji


    I uninstalled flipboard on my Samsung phone despite being default news app in Samsung daily for these reasons mainly: 1. There is no dark mode and it makes me blind at nights. 2. The Samsung daily widget didn't even have ability to edit topics to show. 3. Flipboard's main UI is complicated and outdated. 4. I heard you care more for iOS version, so you better off be on that platform only. Good luck.

    Was nice, but after recently update; it continually shuts down and requests force close. Upon reboot same problem. Hopefully Will be fixed by the next update.

    Flipboard is so choked with advertising that it's no longer a joy to use as my primary news reader. Worse of all are the doubleclick ads that open a browser to completely hijack my phone without even opening an article, just going to the next article before you even see it opens a doubleclick ad in another app.

  19. Akuto Sai-avatar

    Akuto Sai


    The articles typically linked to are fluff with very little substance to them; like an aggregated list of amateur writers simple writing on unfamiliar subjects because they were told too. Lots of ads as well. Interface performed properly

  20. Jesse Ross-avatar

    Jesse Ross


    Was great. Now just click bait. Constantly switching from the app to an advertisement. Every few swipes it takes me out of the app and opens up an advertisement on my web browser.

    I have been using Flipboard for years, the app has worked well on my phone, doesn't drain my battery. As far as content, I don't see bogus news sources in the feed to often.

    Can't log into the app anymore... Before that had a problem with notifications on comments coming through. Let alone the million other bugs. I would download almost any other news app. So sad the updates ruined the app

    Like the different topics. Ads are becoming more prolific. Wont connect me to articles. Does a black n white block off n on. Triple ads on screen. They move so hard to exit them. Looking for another multi source news app

    Toby Mills


    Wide choice of news and articles without intrusive advertisements. Easy to read, the 'fliping' is very intuitive and the layout is dear. Search works well too. Appears to be very up to date. Now my go-to news app.

  27. Aarsh Majmudar-avatar

    Aarsh Majmudar


    One word 'unorganized'.. I loved this app and now its just like reading some random website in Google which is full of Ads. You could have ads and can still make it feel non intrusive just like apps Quora and Medium does, they decide where to put ads unlike you and other website that just throws Google ads all over the page. But no it's full of Ads on single article there are at least 5 ads and some video ad covers the entire reading area while we scroll a little blocking the article itself.

    It was working on my older Android phone, but I just upgraded. Now, I can't get anything to show when I try to sign into my account by email. I'm just stuck at the log-in page and I'd really rather not start fresh with a new account.

    Great source for news. Like how I can set preferences. One downside is too many stories can't read because the source requires a subscription.

    As a news aggregator I like this app. But it has many flaws. Commenting system is horrendous. At times posts don't go through without any notification. Many times I click on a comments section that claim multiple replies only to see none. This has nothing to do with blocking because as a brand new account noone has any reason to block me. seems that after enough offences the system ghosts users which is counterproductive to trying to engage the suppressed users to change their ideology.

  31. RETESH KUMAR-avatar



    ** Please work on widget . Make it curve on edges (looks old fashioned right now). Also users wants to read from homescreen ownwards, make it more resizable(larger). And feeds on widgets should get updated in half hourly basis( more frequently).

  32. Brent Everett-avatar

    Brent Everett


    Comment section is terrible, it's so poorly designed that simple typing and replying are incredibly tedious and more often than not don't even work, comments constantly disappear, you can rarely click on anything, tilting the phone deletes comments lol

    "Show less like this" doesn't work. It doesn't matter how many times I select the option for Donald Trump, he continues to show up on my feed. I have literally selected the option over 100 times to no effect... Please fix this!

    Installed, deleted, reinstalled, but flipboard keeps showing me UK editions of topics instead of the country shown in my profile. Went into my profile each time to ensure I had correct country, which I did. Not impressed. March 20th, 2021. Still no solution. I have sent flip.it/help screenshots twice, no reply. Updated Flipboard today, still showing UK editions, not my region. Definitely not good.

    The UI is pretty, but unintuitive making everything a hassle. On the initial startup I specified a raft of interests, non of which were rugby, yet the app decided to serve me six Nations news. If I wanted content unrelated to my interests I could just use sky news. Not at all what is advertised in the description.

  42. D Wilson-avatar

    Too many Flipboard postings are non-news (pitches for products) or teaser news stories from sites that, one discovers, require signing up and/or paying. My sense is that Flipboard isn't filtering or screening profit-driven opportunists who are taking advantage of this platform for a free ride.

    Was really enjoying this news app but beware--couple of updates ago it started randomly launching the phone's web browser to some kind of ad/doubleclick link. I stop it before it reaches whatever site it's trying to reach, but was looking away once when it did this and looked back to see the browser had thankfully blocked whatever site it was headed to due to suspected malicious content. Couldn't find any options in settings to stop this app behavior. Use at your own risk!

    I've been using this app on a daily basis but now i am actively looking for a replacement. 1. Half the stories arent news but are cheesy click bait with poor quality glitchy sites. 2. A large portion of the headlines lead to storyboards that bury the lead in order to make you search on their page and suffer endless ads. 3. Many news providers have pay walls, essentially turning their stories into ads for newspapers. 4. Messing with the home page is arrogant.

  68. MikeCarol Wayne-avatar

    Decent app missing one crucial feature. While you can mute a site, you can not mute a topic. "Show less like this" needs a stronger option of "Mute", preventing any story with that tag from being displayed. There also needs to be an option to delete all cookies at the end of a session.

    This has to be said .your app bacame like ad maschiene . I know ads are important and i am ok with it . But flipping automatically open my browser is not ok . And its not ok to eat most of my data with ads. And hiding ads in potentially news article is another thing . And control your racist and other trash behaving bots or garabage people . They hate, racist and bigosm ist making your brand trash .

    There's something fishy about this app. I'm not sure if it's the app itself, or the code behind the articles it hosts. This is the only app on my phone, where, while viewing the headlines, without interaction, clicks on these articles. After this occurs, hitting back more than once, is required, to return to the home screen. This signifies, that more than one link was "clicked", when I hadn't touched the screen. You have been warned.

    Since the new update I can't open the first couple of articles but after that it won't open any. It doesn't matter what the source of the article is. It just sits there with the progress bar stagnant. And yes I agree the comments section is just a cesspool of rubbish. No constructive arguments let alone sentences. Just trolls.

    Firefox is no longer listed in the view on the web options. Too many articles are behind paywalls. Would prefer that paywall articles be filtered out. Substantial number of articles are bombarded with intrusive ads. Once you've saved a large number of articles, there's no search function to easily locate the one you want.

    Finally found a newstand app i like!!! This one ask what you want to see and actually show you what you want to see. I tried many apps today, they all asked what i want to see, and keep showing stuff i didn't want in my feed. Even if you hit dislike it comes back to the top of your feed. Flipboard meet my expectations of a newstand app! Easy to use, dark mode available, your feed stay relevant to your criteria... So far i'm happy with this one!

    Please...for the love of all that's holy...fix the locking up of the app. I have performed all action Flipboard has reccomend to keep the app from locking up...but it will work for 4 or 5 flips then it locks up. I absolutely love your product but cant use it anymore. Please look into the problem that many others are having as well. I miss using your product, but until the locking of the screen is fixed, you are sending me somewhere else for news. Please fix the problem, Flipboard!

    I'm disappointed that I don't get notifications about comments anymore. I tried to contact them, and I get ridiculous no reply emails. I even get ridiculous emails from their Tech squad. It is obvious you can't comment, or hear responses and other comments. Other people have this problem. It just isn't any fun anymore, and I have no clue why they changed. I have never used profanity or threatening anything. I'll read it, bit I'm looking for a more interactive news experience. Feedback = zero.

    Love being able to save stories to read later, but the functionality of this app is weak. Tons of glitches on the app and the website. Missing a ton of obvious features (how about a button to go to the end of your magazine?) and takes FOREVER to load. Hard to share stories or save images as well. Wish it was better.. Might switch to a different app.

    Too many ads. Page jumps all over. Too many subscription articles showing up. They are expensive and you would need to spend a ton of money to read them. Videos either don't load or take forever to load. Had FB for quite awhile. Not liking it much now and thinking of looking at other news sites. Way too many disinformation and misinformation articles showing up. This should be something that is checked and at least a warning flag placed on it.

    Great concept of influencing content but the political videos, Ted talks, and royal family keep appearing atop my feeds after years of clicking hide or show less on an almost daily basis. I didn't mind the ads until I realized that the app would never work as described. Fix the feedback system and I'd be happy to come back.

    I don't know why but the number of articles decreased significantly, maybe it has to do with my region. The number of interesets has only grew so it is not the cause.

    I don't mind ads that get placed as stories, but even if I haven't touched the screen they pop an ad that has to switch to my web browser is too much. And it's even an ad to download flipboard. It's annoying as hell. Also, reporting stories out of context doesn't work, for the same type of stories keep appearing.

    As of Jan 28, 2021 (Android OS) update "view on web" appears to no longer use the default browser and to instead open a Chrome browser window. This Chrome bias occured for all three different browsers tried as the default. I would find the Flipboard app forcing Chrome usage to be unacceptable and will discontinue using the Flipboard app until the ability to use the default browser to view articles on the web is restored.

    So disappointed in Flipboard. I signed up using my country region (Canada). But like other users, even after deleting account and reinstalling Flipboard and setting the terms, the selections _still_ default to UK news. This process has been repeated half dozen times. No longer impressed with Flipboard! Ps...I tried contacting you (via flipboard) but never receive a "human" reply. And flip.it/help does not address my problem.

    Getting very frustrated with this app that I use to love... Despite unlike topics, I keep getting a lot of stories I don't want or ads. Tired of playing whack a mole and just want something that works. (Revising based on feedback, was able to mute some... Still trying to filter more and will reach out)

    Decent news aggregator, but too many notices and no way to set limits on them. Had to turn them off because they quickly become annoying. Also has many dead links to news items. A bit clunky due to these issues and others, but it can be useful at times.

    Between the pop-up ads, animated ads and pop-up cookie requests, Flipboard has managed to turn reading into a form of harassment. Such a beautiful app; such a greedy app. EDIT: Reader View must be reselected for each individual article and regularly lags (connection speed 100+mbps), turning Flipboard into Flipwaitclickwaitboard. Hardly a seamless flipping experience. Would gladly purchase a minimal-ad option. To its credit, Flipboard has responded quickly to my feedback. (Thanks.)

    I have used this app for several years. It started out as a great source for a wide content from many sources. The content today seems about half advertisements if you count actual full screen ads, imbedded ads and news content limited to 2 or 3 views a month. Increasingly, the imbedded ads pop up, and it takes several clicks to get out of them. I am desperate to find a decent news accumulator to replace this advertising engine. Technically the app works extremely well most of the time.

    Flipboard was my default app for news. However, now when I open it and flip through articles, the app instantly launches an empty Chrome webpage which I then must close and go back to the app and back out of a blank page. I felt it was a virus or issue with the app so uninstalled/reinstalled both Chrome and Flipboard. Still the same issue which makes it unbearable to use the app like I used to. Very disappointing.

    Mainly US news. Doesn't use the default browser to view pages on the Web. Insists on chrome. Pathetic. I have a better idea. You fix your app and it's non standard activity. That way people won't uninstall your app and your ad revenue won't go down.

    Great and Frustrating App. It is great for the items in interested in, but in their other sections like For You, or their Daily Things, they force politics down your throat. Added to reply.. I didn't ask to remove the For You section, but if it is "For Me", you're telling me if I said no politics, you have nothing else to show me? The section should give me other things, not specifically things I've said I don't want or muted. F'ing morons. I'll just remove the app, really is that simple

    Its pretty okay, the interface is alright and I really like how you can save articles on your profile and see other people's articles they saved. Though when it comes to searching up specific articles it's damn near impossible. I searched up the exact title of an article I saw and it came up with nothing found. As well as seeing categories are non existent on official profiles like polygon, funimation or newsmax. I can only see recent posts and not videos guides or deals like Google news does

    Used to be a good app. It has steadily gone down hill over the years. Really buggy now and last straw is now I keep getting pop up ads to download the flipboard app WHILE I AM IN FLIPBOARD. it is so annoying, very frequent, and you have to spam the back button to get out. The app beats a blank, but that's about it anymore, sadly.

    I have used it for years, but it has progressively gotten worse. It randomly opens a browers to its own website when I haven't even touched the screen. While in EU, I learned it allows ALL website trackers and cookies. It now doesn't support firefox when opening an article on the web. The filtering has gotten substantially worse as they push unrelated article topics frequently. There are now articles from paid sources that cannot be blocked. Terrible response from developer... Getting greedy....

    Good app but recently, it started to freeze frequently while reading articles and sometimes even crash (galaxy note 9, running android 10)... Edit: I'm ashamed to say that I've had the app for so long (without ever encountering issues) that uninstalling and/or erasing data hadn't even crossed my mind... Everything works perfectly now. Thanks.

    This app was great until I got a foldable phone. Now the app can't decide whether I should swipe left/right to scroll through articles or up/down. Often times it shows me article teasers that cannot be opened. There is not a setting that works to keep the navigation usable. Even when I use GoodLock to fix the aspect ratio, it still behaves badly. Sadly I must delete this otherwise good app. (Samsung Z Fold 2)

    Used to be great. But quality of articles has kept decling recently and Flipboard's irrelevant storyboards and unwanted sources keep showing a lot now. Also keeps regurgitating weeks-old articles. And now they changed the way they invoke the external browser and broke it for all browsers except Chrome, Brave and Opera. Oh, and the widget changes to all black most of the time now too. Time to delete this app.

    I like the conception of the application based on the idea of magazines only two things that are missing is that we can't return to home page directly when we're into the main page of an article and when we share we can't send to someone who is yet following us, it doesn't give access to this only adding to magazines or likes. However It is a useful and nice application.

Is there any way to restore Flipboard settings so that it appears when I swipe to the right?

    Great app for variety of news but lately ads seem to click themselves launching to the advertisers web site and I have to constantly back out of them.

    Mainly supports personal opinions and articles laced with false information. Mostly politically embellished rhetoric from the far left and some sprinkled in from the far right.

    So, now this app itself is opening the browser to flipboard's home page. You can't deny it. Freaking unbelievable. This behavior will be reported to google and you might want to fix this for your California users.... It is a violation under the new law... give it a peek.

    Recently they have introduced ads that open the app store while swiping through articles. This completely breaks the user experience and I've found alternative RSS readers as a result. Is the money from a game advertiser worth completely breaking the app or do you just not have QA to check these things?

    The news articles just load a blank, black screen. Edit: I'm not going to "flip.it" because that requires that I re-install your terrible, non-functional app. The other reviews indicate that a change YOU made affected a huge proportion of your users. YOU fix it.

    Was crushing all the time until I turned off autoplay of video(before that, I have erased all the data and reinstall the app), you should put as default that don't autoplays the videos and put a bubble that users can turn on the optuon in settings. I was so close to uninstall it and never use it again
