It seems that aggregating content and delivering it in magazine form is becoming a trend. With Livestand by Yahoo and Editions by AOL captivating users with beautifully laid out content, Google wants to get in on the fun. They’ve introduced Currents for Android tablets and phones. Alongside the news Google will pull from Google News to bring users articles they care for, users can also pull from RSS feeds, video and photo steams, Google+ streams and add their Google Reader account to pull articles from there. Publishers can optimize their content for Current and Google provides an easy way to get your text onto readers’ tablets. It’s an interesting genre of apps (one that I’ve been personally enjoying on my tablet with Editions) and we’re glad to see Google trying their hand at it. Grab it from the Android market. [Google]
