Add RSS feeds from Google Reader to Google Currents

Eliminate the need for two RSS clients by adding your current feeds to Google's new Currents app.

If you haven't grabbed the app yet, get Google Currents for Android, or Google Currents for iPhone.

Step 1: Open the app and make sure you're on the Library tab.

Step 4: You'll see the RSS feeds you're subscribed to through Google Reader. Just press the Add button next to the ones you want to add to Google Currents.

Step 5: You'll probably see a message saying your content is being formatted. Once it loads, you're good to start reading right away.

The end result will appear something like this:

This app is a really fun way to experience online content on your device (sync and download settings allow offline viewing). You can even share an RSS for your own blog, and customize the way your content appears in Google Currents through its content producer.
