Google Currents (subscribe to AC on Google Currents!) has received a sizeable update that increases the speed of the app as well offers the app worldwide, which also widens the language support.
Here is the full change-log:
- Sync speed - Dramatic (7X) performance boost
- Instant online sync - No need to press "sync". Just open an edition for latest content
- 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
The increased speed will be welcomed. I love the look of Google Currents, but often find it to be slower than bringing up the actual website. With the 7x boost in speed as well as instant online sync, I think the experience will be much more fluid.
The app is free from the Google Play Store. Please find a link after the break.
