It's the hot new thing, don'tcha know? Reading magazines on a tablet -- paper is so last year. And now, Google is joining the ranks of Flipboard, Hearst, Amazon, etc. with a new initiative called Google Currents. For now, it's a US-only product, but it's a really impressive one. It's available for both Android and iOS, and it'll work on both tablets and phones. It's a free app that's graphically-heavy, and it supports offline viewing to boot. Naturally, Google+ integration is alive and well, allowing for easy sharing so long as you're linking up with Google's Facebook rival. There's a video here for those who are still unsure, but it's free -- so why not give it a whirl?

Using it right now, pretty cool. Wish it had hot hardware!

Now you're just mashing it!

Going to check it out later on one of my father tablets. I don't think I would want to read a magazine on my phone :(
