The short answer:
The longer answer.
Mobile development is typically broken into 4 pieces.
- Interaction Design & User Experience Design
- Visual Design
- Backend development
- Front-end (UI) development
All Estimates Assume Premium Talent ($250 an hour) - 99Designs and ODesk Won't Come Anywhere Near Producing Something like Flipboard
Interaction Design & User Experience Design
This can vary a lot, but will probably take ~6 weeks of full time work from 1 person.
This will probably take another ~4 weeks of full-time work from 1 person.
This one is harder to estimate, but based on somewhat similar projects we've done, I'd say it would take roughly 8 man-months (2 full-time backend developers working for 4 months each).
Yes, backend development is expensive. It's totally worth it to do it right though -- otherwise you run the risk of your entire product failing due to issues with usability/stability.
Front-end (UI) Development (Assuming only Android/iOS)
To create a rich, Flipboard-quality experience, you'll need to build native apps on both platforms. It will take roughly 3 man-months for each platform.
$120,000 X 2 = $240,000
One of a test app that we have created with matrix cloud is a news reader app, but that was developed for an entirely different purpose.
Please send me a personal note if you are interested in exploring matrix cloud.

Before writing answer i would like to answer it with an infographic
well here it is answer as per market infographic result. flipboard is complex app so it will cost you $10k - $250k plus here social media integration and database will also include so now it will cost you with approx $11.5k - $257k.
well to understand project in detail you can contact us at
or mail us at
we used to do this kind of project development.
