Google has made major changes to it’s mobile social magazine app. Google Currents is now easier to scan through categories and editions from Google publisher partners including Forbes, The Guardian, TechCrunch, PBS, Mashable, Fast Company etc.  The app  allows you to discover, share and read your favorite news outlets, blogs and online magazines.

Currents launched in December 2011 now features more than 700 publisher editions and “tens of thousands of self-produced editions.” Google search technology identifies and delivers the hottest breaking stories in categories such as world, entertainment, sports, science, and more.

According to Google, the recent redesign of Google Currents makes it even easier to scan through all your favorite categories and specific editions with just the swipe of a finger. And, Google is now  using some of the technology behind Search to bring you breaking stories on celebrity scandals, that fiscal cliff negotiation or hottest holiday gift.

Editions are now grouped into categories to help you keep track of your existing subscriptions and discover new ones. Check out editions related to your interests through categories like Entertainment, Sports, Lifestyle and more. All of your content will be grouped in these categories, accessible from a sidebar. And you can organize your editions in each category with favorites on top.

If you subscribe to more than a dozen News editions like The Atlantic, ABC News and The Telegraph, you can quickly swipe through the entire category and dive into editions with articles of interest.

The updated Google Currents is now available for Android devices and the iOS version will be released in the coming days.
