Google has lifted the lid on its long-rumoured, personalised magazine app for Android and iOS.

Google Currents will go head-to-head with the popular Flipboard app for iPhone and iPad by bringing in feeds from your favourite online news sources and Google+ feed.

Just like Flipboard, the free app, which is US-only release at present, will reformat articles and present the entire package in a neat-looking digital magazine.

The app had been rumoured for some time now, with the original name for the project thought to be Google Propeller.

I've only played with it a bit on my iPad, and so far I see no reason at all to use this instead of Flipboard. It feels less optimized, not as pretty (very subjective, I know) and lacks the same level of integration with services such as Twitter and Facebook (this last point might perhaps be a positive for some?).
