My Magazine is Flipboard in disguise

Possibly taking a cue from HTC's BlinkFeed, the Note 10.1 tablet (2014 edition) and Note 3 smartphone conceal a version of Flipboard within its home screen matrix. Flick up from the bottom of the screen (or press the home button three times) to launch the magazine-style newsfeed.

Although there's room for choosing the types of stories you want to read, you won't have a say over which publications My Magazine pulls from.

Magazine reading

Due to Flipboard's influence, the magazine-style reading really pops. Pages virtually fold and flip to reveal more content.
