We’ve worked with more than 150 publishing partners to offer full-length articles from more than 180 editions including CNET, AllThingsD, Forbes, Saveur, PBS, Huffington Post, Fast Company and more. Content is optimized for smartphones and tablets, allowing you to intuitively navigate between words, pictures and video on large and small screens alike, even if you’re offline.I’ve been using the Flipboard app but I do like Currents. There are a few issues keeping me from switching. Flipboard — like Currents — can access Google Reader. However, while Flipboard pulls in my feeds — I have over 269 web sites in Google Reader — and presents them for reading, Currents wants me to select them one at a time for download.Second complaint. Flipboard formats content into a single column for reading and I can adjust text size. Currents does two column newspaper format by default and does not allow font size changes. I’ll stick to Flipboard for now.One thing that Flipboard lacks is Google+ integration. Currents of course supports that.
