Google’s beautiful magazine-esque news reader has received its first major update today. The update takes care of a slew of issues but most importantly, it takes care of the painfully slow syncing. Users will now have instant online sync as well as sync speeds 7x faster than the previous version. Other improvements to the app include:
- Offline reading – Choose favorite editions for offline images.
- International – Currents now available worldwide (in 44 languages).
- Translate – Translate complete editions to your preferred language. (38 languages).
- Trending – Local trending stories provided for US, FR, UK, DE, IT, ES, JP, AU.
- Bug fixes
It’s really a fantastic news aggregator that’s not only clean, but also free! If you haven’t tried out Google Currents, I suggest checking it out, and don’t forget to add the Cult of Android publication to your library. Cheers!
