Google Currents is a very nice app, and it has received a very big update, all the way to version 2.0. With the update come a lot of new features. Here’s a full changelog from the Play Store:
- Edition sidebar – quickly access your editions within categories such as business, sports, etc.
- Fast scan – Vertical swipe to scan an edition, horizontal swipe advances to next edition
- Edition-section chooser – Choose “Customize” to filter out sections
- Unread marks – Read stories are marked. (Setting to hide)
- Breaking stories – ranked by Google News. Links to full length content.
- Saved stories – star for future reference
- New catalog design
Obviously, one of the biggest features here is the edition sidebar. It offers a new way to navigate through the app, along with the gestures to swipe between categories. There’s also the new widget, which I’m sure many Currents users wanted. If you want the update, hit the source link to download it.
