Google releases its own version of Apple’s Newsstand app

Google has released its own version of Apple’s Newsstand app, an app for reading non-book content such as magazines, newspapers, or blogs. What separates this Android exclusive app from Apple’s version is that it “learns” your content preferences, increasingly offering more relevant content to try over time.

Google announced this week Google Play Newsstand, an app for reading non-book content (magazines, newspapers, blogs and more) on an Android phone or tablet. Google appears to work hard to make sure the iOS platform has Google apps with as much of features and functionality as Apple and their internal resources allow. But for at least the rest of the year, only Android devices will have a Google Play Newsstand app (the iOS version will reportedly emerge some time next year!).
