Google introduces Currents for Android and iOS
Today Google announced their long-rumored “Flipboard killer”, originally nicknamed Propeller. The final product, Google Currents, is double entendre for a webzine-viewer that brings you current events, and the fluid way you can share Google+ and find out what is trending on the web.

The initial release is for Android and iOS phones and tablets, although it’s U.S.-only for the time being. As per the usual Google modus operandi, the app is free to all, and is available now in the respective marketplaces.

So what is it? iOS users who use Flipboard will have a good idea – it’s a way of syncing webpages into a more magazine-like layout for easy reading. The app comes with some default sites installed, but you can add sites of your own selection. The app syncs for easy offline reading as well, so if you travel a lot you can always have the latest news ready to read in a clean and consistent format on your mobile device.

Still have questions? Here is the official promotional video Google released:
