The beautiful and free magazine reader Google Currents was just updated today by Google bringing some much needed changes, not to mention international availability and support for over 44 languages. Being released back in December users have been patiently waiting for an update and additional support and today they killed two birds (or more) with one stone and have released a massive update.
Being detailed in full on the Google Mobile Blog, Currents now has even more to offer users than ever before. First off you’ll notice a massive speed and performance increase with daily usage and syncing. They claim 7x the performance than the previous version so things should be very fast. Next they got rid of sync and it automatically does it now, no need to hit that sync button. The last major thing worth noting is worldwide availability in over 44 languages. You’ll no longer need a hacked APK if you’re an international user.
-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.
