Late last night, Google released its Flipboard like competitor for Android and iOS devices, known as Currents. The Currents app from the big G will allow users to discover new content in a new magazine like UI, all at the swipe of a finger.

Websites, media houses and magazines need to make sure that they optimize their site for Google Currents. Like all other recent Google services, Google Currents in also integrated with the Google+. Sadly, the app is only available for Android users in the United States.

Below is a video of Google Currents in action-:

In other Android related news, the official Twitter app for Android also got a major update. The whole UI has been totally redesigned in this new update, and looks much better. Probably the best looking Twitter client in the Android Market right now. However, the blue bar at the top of the app does not really have any use, and is simply wasting some previous screen estate.


The whole UI is mainly white and blue in color, which may not please all the Android owners with an AMOLED screen. The Twitter app for iOS and the web version has also been redesigned with a similar UI. The new update is already live on the Android Market, and can be downloaded from here.
