Flipboard has rolled out an interesting new update to its Android app today, one that let’s you decide how many articles are displayed on a given page.

The new Layout Density feature is accessible via the main settings menu, and you can select ‘high’ which means that you’ll see a maximum number of headlines on each page, or ‘low’ which means the opposite. ‘Smart’, on the other hand, is the default option that lets Flipboard decide the best configuration for each page. Moreover, you can apply this layout to a specific section, or your entire Flipboard library.


This is the latest update to hit since 2.2.3 a couple of weeks back, which brought redesigned Cover Stories to help surface more interesting content.

You can download the updated Android app now, and there’s no word yet on whether this option will be arriving for iOS any time soon.
