Today, Google announced its latest app, a content news reader for Android phones and tablets (and iOS) called Google Currents. Google Currents lets you explore online magazines and other content from your device in a whole new way. You can think of Google Currents as a direct competitor Flipboard, the popular RSS reader for iOS.

At launch, there are over 150 publishing partners that offer full-length articles from popular publications such as CNET, AllThingsD, Forbes, PBS, Huffington Post, and more. The content you access is automatically optimized for both tablets and phones. In addition to choosing publications, you can also subscribe to your favorite RSS, video, and photo feeds, Google+ streams, and Google Reader subscriptions you’re currently following. 

In addition to giving you access to your favorite content, Google Currents integrates perfectly with Google+ so that you can easily share the articles or videos that you enjoy with the people in your Google+ circle. 

Google Currents is currently available in the Android Market as a free download. Unfortunately, it is only officially available for users in the U.S. To download, head over to the Android Market.
