Google today debuted Currents, a new, Flipboard-esque tool for Android and iOS devices for collecting and consuming online and social networking content. The application integrates with a number of existing Google services, such as Google+, Reader, and YouTube, and lets users easily share and cross-post content from one service to another. Google Currents is launching with specialized content from more than 150 publishing partners across the web, and is formatted for smartphones and tablets. Users populate it with content from the sites and services they enjoy using. Google said it is also making tools available to publishers so they can adjust their content to make it compatible with Currents. The application is available starting today to the iPhone and iPad, and Android smartphones and tablets.

A lousy Google Reader App :(

It's fine if you just want to skim the news, or play around with trending -- but as a Google Reader app, it's useless. Doesn't mark articles as 'read', makes you pick each particular feed you want included, no option to just incorporate >all< of your Reader feeds.

With luck, Google has something similar in the works more specific to Reader use.
