Google Currents Released

Google has released its rumored Flipboard competitor, Currents, ahead of schedule. Unlike Flipboard, Google is evidently taking aim at content publishers and producers, allowing them to control and build custom interfaces for their own content.

With over 180 major content producers already signed on, Google has certainly made a respectable start. Having said that, with well-established platforms like Flipboard, Zite, and Pulse already available, is anyone really looking for another app to do the same thing?

Currents is available for Apple devices here, and Android devices here.
