Many improvements on existing 1.0 features:
 • Better integration with your favorite sharing and bookmarking services.

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

+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?
