Google has just released Google Currents for the iPhone and iPad, an app that delivers magazine like content right on your iDevice (can you say Flipboard?). Partnering with over 150 publishers, including CNET, Forbes, PBS, Huffington Post and more, users will have access to full-length articles that have especially been optimized for mobile (and even offline) viewing. Users will also be able to subscribe to specific publications of their liking, along with RSS, video/photo feeds and even Google Reader subscriptions they’re already following. By the sounds of it, Google Currents is quite promising, especially the fact that it supports Google Reader. The app is free to download and it’s available now on the App Store. Check out the demo video after the break.
Google, Google Currents, – Free

Twitter officially announced today an all new version of its social networking service, one aimed at consistency and simplicity.
And coinciding with this drastic redesign, Twitter for iPhone was updated a few hours ago and the app will now give you a glimpse of some the changes that will be rolling out at Twitter online over the next several weeks. The iPhone app is now divided into four tabs: Home is where you’ll see your timeline and tweets of those you follow; Connect is where you’ll go to see who has followed/mentioned you, retweeted or favorited one of your tweets; Discover lets you search for keywords/hashtags and also “discover” trending stories; and finally Me, which is the section for your profile, DMs and account settings. For all your Twitter users, be sure to grab this latest update at the App Store (or link below). You can also find out more info on Twitter’s new look at www.fly.twitter.com

Searching for images on Google via your iPad (and other tablets) is now easier and faster thanks to the newly implemented image carousel feature. Now when you Google search images, you can tap on any thumbnail to reveal the carousel view, where you can swipe left/right to browse between images. Tap on the url beneath the the image and it’ll take you directly to corresponding website. This feature for the iPad was first seen in the recently updated Google Search app, and it’s certainly a welcome addition to Google’s mobile site for tablets.

OnLive announced earlier yesterday that their cloud gaming service will be making its way onto the iOS and Android platforms in the US and UK. Millions of mobile users will soon be able to play console quality games over Wi-Fi and mobile networks on demand.

The OnLive app will be free to download (expected release is today, Dec 8th), and the games can be played either with a purchase or rental. We’ll update the post with a link once the app does become available on the App Store. In the meanwhile, take a look at IGN’s hands-on video below, along with the full press release.
