Ram on April 11, 2012 (Version 1.1.0)


A good Flipboard alternative and a good Reddit app is what I was wishing for most on Android (that iOS already has). Currents has now completely addressed the lack of Flipboard and I like it even more than Flipboard and Reddit News has matched Alien Blue and then some. Been with Android since HTC Dream / G1 and Android 1.0 but since ICS, I'm completely happy with Android. Thanks, Google!

Still needs better reader integration

Can we get Google reader integration tighter? As in, not needing to manually mark my articles as read in reader when I do so in this app. Also, caching to SD card would be nice as well as read it later apps integration.

Sharing Issue Fixed

Great job with integrating share with G+ to provide preview image as well for links to articles (now share with the YouTube Dev Team)
