Editors' review

Read top magazines for free on your Android phone or tablet with Google Currents. Topics include News, Sports, Entertainment, Business, Lifestyle, and more. Familiar titles such as Popular Science, Forbes Now, and TMZ are presented in a familiar page-turning format with high-quality images and text comparable to print editions, only they're free to read in Currents, either online or in high-speed offline editions. You can subscribe to titles, too. Currents incorporates a lot of Google features, such as Google Search for breaking news as well as Google's blog, feeds, and translation tools. An optional widget also delivers breaking news to your home screen.

The "sidebar" menu's categories serve as your magazine stand. We could add and remove titles from the menu by tapping "Customize," with plenty of local options. To read a magazine in Currents you just need to open it. We selected Science & Tech and opened "Scientific American Reader." Like most titles in Current, it's a Web edition, specifically tailored for mobile users, and not all the print content is available in the Android version.

The new Fast Scan capability scrolls vertically through stories with a uniquely natural interactive motion. We could also swipe horizontally to jump to the next edition in that category. It's easy to search for and save stories, too, or tap "Pick of the Week" and let Currents suggest something new and cool. The future of the magazine trade is online and mobile, according to most. You can read all about it now with Google Currents.
