Google has demonstrated some of the high-performance games owners of the new Nexus 7 tablet will be able to enjoy, as well as a new version of Currents, the company's news app. Currents has been updated specially to suit the Nexus 7 slate, complete with page formatting to suit the 7-inch screen together with instant translation.
This week Google Currents was released, a project made for the two biggest mobile platforms on the planet by Google in collaboration with a variety of launch partners including your favorite tech and gadget blog SlashGear - what we've got for you here is a closer look at the iPad version of this application. What you'll find different about this app compared to the rest is scale and applicability - there are some limits to being on an iOS device running a Google-made application, but they are few. Instead what we've got here is a lovely bit of organization making the reading of even the most aesthetically displeasing blogs a sight to behold.
Not able to wait for the action for more than an hour after the races have started, hackers at XDA Developers Forums have already loosened the reigns on Google Currents so that everyone, including those users outside the USA, are able to use it. This week - just a short time ago today, to be exact, Google released their first multi-platform news reading application by the name of Google Currents - inside users will find a lovely stark white setup where they can read all their favorite news sources from the internet with the greatest of ease, just so long as they're in the USA. Until now, of course, when you can download the APK for Android without a hitch.
Google Currents has been officially launched, a digital magazine for iPad, iPhone and Android smartphones and tablets delivering full-length articles from over 150 different publishing partners including SlashGear. Optimized to suit phones and slates, Currents offers text, audio, photos and videos, including offline support, as well as the ability to load users' own Google+ and Google Reader accounts along with RSS, video and photo feeds to consume your own customized content.
