Yesterday, I accidentally met “Google Currents” and got curious. The description itself is hazy, not give the sense what it’ll do. But wait, how could it explain ? It’s totally new revolutionary way to engage your readership into fun. Just install on your iPhone or Android phone and see how nice a productive software can be. BTW, all “editions”(contents’ name for Currents) are free for this application.
You can get it right away here at Google Currents …
According to the developer, Google Inc., it’s
Beautiful, free, favorite publications for your phone and tablet.
Google Currents delivers beautiful magazine-like editions to your tablet and smartphone for high speed and offline reading. Editions are all free and include:
- Publisher editions – Publishers such as Forbes, The Guardian, TechCrunch, PBS, Saveur, and more have produced hundreds of editions including in-depth articles, videos, fine photography, slideshows, live-maps, and social streams.
- Google trending editions – Google Currents uses Google search technology to hourly build a set of editions tracking the five most recent trending stories in categories such as world, entertainment, sports, science, and more. Each story is presented through a fresh edition of articles, videos, and pictures,
- Your favorite blogs and feeds – Instantly, turn your Google Reader subscriptions, or any of your favorite blogs/feeds into a beautiful edition with a magazine feel.
Each edition is available for high speed offline reading, and provides quick-touch sharing. Google Currents self-adapts to differently sized phones and tablets, with your subscriptions synchronized across devices. Google Currents – a reading experience not to be missed.
Named by New York Times, The Next Web, SlashGear and more as a top 10 Android app in 2011.
But, according to me, it’s simply awesome.
- Offline reading is possible
- You can easily check the trends, i.e. what’s goin’ on web
- Partitioning of the reading space that makes sense
- Awesome font rendering on phone/tab screen
- Already included some great subscriptions
What’s not yet:
- Integration of Google Reader subscription
- Why publication(aka markeing) of this great app is so poor ?
