HAPPY APPS FOR NEWS

— Google “Currents” is a free magazine app for Android devices, iPads and iPhones. It starts you out with six covers showing on the screen, and you get 180 more by tapping a button. There’s a “share” button for emailing or posting to Facebook. We liked the layout here better than “Pulse,” a similar app.

— “News Republic” is a free smart-phone and iPad app that offers 10,000 stories a day from 180 news providers. The nice thing here is that you can click headlines and read complete articles in the same window, without having to follow a link to some other website. The app is available for all the major smart phones and tablets.

— “APPY Geek” is a news app for Geeks. “Glam life” focuses on celebrity and lifestyle news.
