Avid users of Google Currents will be happy to hear that the app has been revamped, making it easier to scan through categories in a swipe while borrowing a portion of Google’s powerful search functionality to deliver breaking stories. Google does it by grouping editions into categories, so that users can stay on top of their subscriptions. What’s more is that all of these are accessible from the sidebar. And thanks to the update, users can now swipe horizontally across pages to quickly browse articles and blogs.
On the other hand, swiping vertically lets users scan headlines easily in a particular edition. To do this, simply swipe through the headlines to view the top stories. Last but not the least, Google Currents is now using Google’s technology behind its search functionality to deliver the hottest breaking stories per category. Stories are also customized according to a user’s country and language. The updated app is now available for download on Google Play. iOS users will be getting the newly-updated app soon, says Google. Also, remember to add Ubergizmo in your list.
