Review Google Currents

Sergei Petrov
7.5Good
Google Media program is designed to combine all the news flows in one convenient app, which will be optimized for mobile news readable form. According to their type and use of the application has similar functionality to Flipboard and Pulse News .
Working With Google Media begins with the choice of your interest from the list of sites, divided into thematic categories. In each of these categories can be found 4.3 Russian site, the rest are foreign, but do not despair if the search field to drive the site name or domain, with 99% probability it will be.
In fact, with the help of Google Media you can subscribe to any RSS-Feed and read the latest updates from within the application. In addition, the program is, of course, works with Google Reader and allows you to import the selected feed.

Features of Google Media

  • Ability to load articles with pictures for offline-reading;
  • Individual design for major news channels (for example, National Geographic);
  • Convenient arrangement of the material (pictures beautifully fit into the design of articles);
  • Fast and stable operation of the program;
  • Convenient sidebar sorted by subject and type of content (video, photo).
It is not strange flaws in Google Media almost more than merit. I would place the search giant has attributed to the application postscript "Beta", since this product can not be considered complete. The app is completely absent optimization, for example, on my smartphone font climbs abroad the display and to avoid it had to manually adjust the size.
Scrolls the text is only in one single format from left to right. We certainly understand that Google wanted to make the application "knigopodobnym", but we have all become accustomed to the vertical scroll, and indeed, why deprive the user choice? Would setting the proper example. Also in the application does not have the ability to switch execution from day to night, it can also be called an omission, as all competitors for a long time there is such an option.

Resume

Program Google Media elaboration especially for those who do not want to mess about and something to adjust. There is a national publication, easy synchronization with Google Reader and minimum settings, and even a nice icon and a note that this application is developed itself Google.
