Google Currents allows you to read digital subscriptions, RSS feeds, blogs and Google trending histories
Google Currents is a comprehensive reader app focused on digital magazines (both free and paid subscriptions). It offers a neat interface and a horizontal drag and flip experience that, despite isn't as stunning as Flipboard regarding effects, it's quite fast. It seems that Google Currents has been especially designed for publications such as: CNET, Forbes, Hufftington Post, The Root, the Guardian...
There are lots of subscriptions divided by categories. You can add as many as you want. Actually, and that's its strongest point, there's a platform provided by Google Currents that allows users to create their own current channel and get subscribers.
Users can also integrate their RSS feeds manually or add (one by one) them from Google Reader account. Although it can also work as a RSS reader, it's not as fast and comfortable as other specific apps. There's a lack of sorting, personalizing and tagging options in this regard.
Finally, you can check Google Trendings, which uses Google search technology to track the five most recent trending stories in different categories. Each story is presented in a fresh edition of articles, videos and pictures.
Google Currents is an expected publication reader provided by Google Inc. However, I personally think that it needs to improve in some regards: import/export RSS, social networks feeds integration and free of choice on sorting content.
