Google Currents for Android and iOS

When Google launched its free Currents smartphone and tablet app for Android phones and tablets, and for the iPhone and iPad in December 2011, First Tracks!! Online was invited to be one of its initial 180 featured publishers.

Google Currents is an app for Android devices, iPads and iPhones that lets you explore online magazines and other content with the swipe of a finger. It brings together this content in a beautiful and simple way so you can easily navigate between words, pictures and video on your smartphone or tablet.

For the moment, our edition for Currents includes our news and features, Liftlines forum posts (read only), Twitter feed, Google+ and Facebook Page wall content. Initially at least, everything is read only but content is downloaded and stored for offline reading.

To receive our Edition, first install Currents to your mobile device from either the Android Market or the Apple App Store and then simply add First Tracks!! Online from the Google Currents library. You can also point your mobile browser to this URL, or if you prefer, use the following QR code to quickly and easily add the First Tracks!! Online Edition to Currents:
