For whatever reason, Google has left the Apple world behind for this switch over until now. Today, Google has finally brought Newsstand to iOS.
This also means which the Currents app for iOS is dying. When you have it installed, you will get yourself a prompt to install the new Newsstand app. Interestingly, despite the undeniable fact that Newsstand app is new on iOS, it is nearly here in at version 3. 0. The app is well done, as you could expect, however it is not quite optimized to the new iPhone 6 Plus. It offers the very same RSS news feeds and magazine subscriptions as on Android, but due to the iOS rules, you will really need to navigate to the web Play Store to get or sign up for any magazines.
