The free Google Currents app has plenty of great features as outlined in a previous blog post, including free publisher editions of popular titles such as Forbes, The Guardian, TechCrunch, PBS and Saveur; the ability to fast scan so you can quickly swipe vertically to discover unread stories within an edition; breaking stories using Google search technology to deliver the latest news in categories you choose; linkability to your favorite blogs and feeds; and translate capabilities of your favorite content into 44 supported languages.
As if that wasn’t enough, Currents now supports editions that include audio by adding a media bar which allows for easy playback of such files within the app. The audio media bar has controls for stop, start, next, previous. The update also allows you to build playlists to retrieve at a future date for those times you can’t listen. And when you add the 4.5-inch HD ColorBoost™ display of the MOTOROLA ATRIX™ HD to the mix, you’ll have a great viewing experience as well.
And if you’re like a lot of people that go between smartphone, tablet, desktop and even more devices, Google Currents has enhanced Android syncing between devices, so you can start a story on your phone on the train into work, pick up at work on your desktop (during lunch of course) and finish in the evening on your tablet, all without having to find where you left off. .
Keep current on everything you’re interested in with the newly improved Google Currents app in the Google Play store.
