On the heels of the new Flipboard redesigned for iPhone, Google today released its latest magazine-like formatted app called Currents, which is available  for Android devices, iPhone, and iPad.  Google just joint CNN’s Zite, AOL Editions and Flipboard for the feed aggregator for mobile devices.

Google Currents contains “Library” tab for all the feeds you add or keep the defaults as seen on the home page below. “Trending” tab offers the five most recent trending stories in multiple categories such as world, entertainment and sports.

After testing on the iPhone version, in my opinion it is good but it is not as intuitive as Flipboard. But thanks to iCloud, the same app in iPad version got pushed and installed automatically on my iPad. Evidently, larger screen makes Currents much more enticing.

Google Currents is now available for download in Android Market and the Apple App Store for US users.
