2014 - News reader Google Currents rebranded to Google Play Newsstand. Feedly is in panic
Google Currents, Google’s magazine-like news reading iOS app and a competitor to Flipboard, is rolling out a redesign and a handful of new features, including a way to subscribe to topics you’re interested in, instead of only subscribing to publishers, blogs and RSS feeds. The company is also renaming the app to Google Play Newsstand. This change also follows the shift from Google Currents on Android. In the updated iOS Newsstand app Google has introduced revamped top-level navigation for browsing through the news content. There are now a few categories to help readers manage their subscriptions as well as dive into reading the news they care about, including a “Read Now” section which points you to the articles and editions from publications and feeds you currently subscribe to; “My Library,” which is a list of your Newsstand subscriptions; and “Topics,” a way to subscribe to areas of interest.
