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.

Limited customization

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.

Exit gracefully

Tap the arrow on the right for navigation away from My Magazine and into other apps, like the dialer and Google search.

Magazine reading

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