A few weeks ago, Google released a cool new way to consume content on mobile devices called Currents. For those who are unaware, Currents takes your favorite websites and transforms them into digital magazines (granted that the site has its own Currents edition). Well, now you can keep up with everything going on here at AP on Currents.

Finding us on Currents is easy; there are two ways of going about it.

If you're already reading this on your mobile (and you have Currents installed) open this link in the stock browser. It will not work correctly if you attempt to open it with any other browser. Simple enough, right?

Update: You can now find us in the Science & Tech category, as well.

You can also search for us directly within the Currents application. It's slightly confusing, so here's a handy screenshot tutorial on how to do it.

From the main screen, hit the "Add more" button and tap "search."

Once the search box pops up, type in Android Police and tap enter - we should be the first result.

A quick tap on "Add for free," and that's it!

It's worth noting that we're also working on getting into the Featured section, which should make finding us even easier. Enjoy!

    Awesome! One thing though - you can see 'related articles/Done with this post? You might also like these:' things and an advert for Android Police T-Shirts. Anyway you could rid of these?

    But other than that, it's awesome!

      I'll look into that.

      Pretty sure I sorted this out, we'll see if it worked upon the next update.

        Well, I just looked and I don't see any of the stuff anymore, just the article! Thanks Artem! :D

        Artem, why are you claiming that Currents only works on tablets. Currents works great on phones too.
        Also the link you give to add AP does work great on phones too. You say it is only for tablets.
        Are you still using the older 4" phones?

          Artem didn't write this; I did. Sorry for the mistake - it's fixed now.

    Awsome job! To bad you can't mark stuff as read in current...

    A cool way to consume content = yes

    A cool new way to consume content = not so much

    Sharing the link to apps (at least by scanning it in from QR Droid) gave the option to open in Currents.

    Hi. Just want to have some clarifications regarding Google Currents:
    1) I am in Malaysia. Originally, I couldn't download Currents from the Market but somehow last week I was able to. Now, after uninstalling, I cannot find it on the Market again. How come?
    2) I uninstalled Currents because the size of the app kept on increasing. At the start, it was around 50mb and gradually increased daily until it reached 200mb. I only had a few stream channels. Was this just a one-off thing for me or is it the same for everyone?
    Thanks!

    PS: I actually like Currents - the way it presents news. But trending is awful - you can't read the full stories.

      I had the same issue on my phone - removed it when it reached about 150mb
