Coincidence little is silly. In the same week that Flipboard presented after months and months of delay, the version of the iPhone app, the Google shows a competitor and so much to him. The Google Currents was announced today as the ideal way to consume content on the smartphone or tablet.

Like a story? Just like Flipboard, Google Currents lets you share it on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ (of course) and other services. Including Instapaper, dedicated exclusively to create lists of further reading that no one reads. It does not support the Read It Later, unfortunately.
