Our revamped Google Currents app is now available for iOS (goo.gl/IWFvo) and #Android (goo.gl/C700m). Our new app makes it even easier to scan through all your favorite categories and specific editions with just the swipe of a finger. And, we’re using some of the technology behind Search to bring you breaking stories. Read more about the updates here: http://goo.gl/0iUeN.

+Sami Shalabi , why are my shares from Currents to Google+ so screwed up? There's no picture...just a hyperlink to a "Google producer" item. I love reading content from Currents, but the sharing is messed up. Any insights?

Starting today, we’re revamping Currents to make it even easier to scan through all your favorite categories and specific editions with just the swipe of a finger. And, we’re using some of the technology behind Search to bring you breaking stories so you have the latest on that royal pregnancy, fiscal cliff negotiation or hottest holiday gift: http://goo.gl/7iozj

Puraqua built us a new 20k gunite pool this summer. The experience from start to end was superb. Ken was always communicating with us about the status of the project and really took our needs to heart. He also coordinated many of the additional contractors (fencing, landscaping, sprinklers, electric, etc) needed for the project. The execution was really well managed with almost no downtime. Their staff is very respectful, knowledgable and hard working. Highly recommended as a pool contractor. We couldn't be happier with our choice and the result.
