Flipboard’s news aggregator app is getting some useful updates today on Android as it hits version 3.2.

The most useful of these is probably the new collaborative magazine feature that allows you to create news streams you can share with just your family and friends.

The update also integrates Twitter log-ins to quickly create a Flipboard account. And in a Twitter-esque move, you can now tag your friends in captions and comments with the ‘@’ sign.

The update is available on the Play Store now. No word on an equivalent iOS update yet, but we imagine it’s coming soon – we’ll update this post if we find out more.
