Google Currents is an app developed by Google that’s designed to deliver a magazine-type experience while reading content on mobile devices like tablets and smartphones. Released late last year 2011 in the US, it only got available internationally last April 2012. If you’re an Apple IOS user, it’s easy to say it’s a competitor to FlipBoard, a neatly designed social media aggregator. Clearly and personally, I think Flipboard wins in terms of aesthetics and reading experience as well as integration of social media accounts like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. But Google Currents do have aces up its sleeve besides becoming a pre-installed app in all Android devices starting from the upcoming Android Jelly Bean (4.1).
I know from personal experience that mobile phones are getting much powerful these days that I sometimes find myself browsing through my favorite sites whenever I’m on the move anywhere. Just spreading the content of my sites in different platforms, I’m launching the new Ironwulf En Route OVI App for Nokia based phones. It delivers the latest updates from Ironwulf En Route, The Digital Dispatches and My Flickr Stream.
The App is Free which you could find here at the OVI Store. If you have a Nokia device with OVI Store, just search for Ironwulf and you’ll find the App there. It’s compatible on most Nokia Devices but is optimized for the latest handsets like the Nokia N8 where you can add a widget on the homepage to see real time updates.
Go now and point your mobile browsers to http://go.ironwulf.net and you’ll find yourself on the mobile version of Ironwulf.net which I call Ironwulf.net: GO!. It’s basically a Mobsite (Mobile Site) which you can publish feeds from your blog sites whether it’s wordpress or blogger generated, show your more recent uploads on flickr, add a form so people can send you emails through their mobiles and other stuffs. I know most mobile devices now can browse web sites but the benefit I see on this one is that it’s a simple summary of your content, a quick contact page and compatibility to most mobile browsers out there. This is basically one of the things I like on the new Smart Sandbox.
