Newsstand_N7_ReadNow_Landscape

Today you may have noticed that your Play Magazines app has an update available. This is no small bug-squashing update. Today’s update, which will roll out to all users over the next few days according to Google, turns your Play Magazines app into a completely new app called Newsstand. Newsstand combines your Play Magazine subscriptions and the Currents news application. Google is making this the place you come to read all of your content and will surely replace news reading apps for a lot of people on Android such as Flipboard and Feedly.

After playing around with and looking at the app, I can say that it is beautifully built, it looks great, is silky smooth, and is a joy to use (which does not come as a surprise seeing as it’s Google). The app is definitely a step up from what Currents was and is much more of a joy to look at and use. We cannot wait to see how Google continues to improve upon Newsstand in the future because it has a lot of potential to be the best news reader around.

(Author) - I am currently attending college to receive my degree in Computer Science with a pipe dream to someday work at Google. I love everything about android and smartphones and always love learning more about them or anything else tech wise. I also love developing Android apps and learning new types of code in my spare time. My current devices I use are my LG Optimus G and Nexus 7, Pebble watch is still on the way.
