Google’s Newsstand app will come to iOS in 2014

Google’s new app announced today, named – get this – Newsstand, will be coming to iOS sometime in 2014. Google Play Newsstand being the full name of the service (still find it insane that it chose “Newsstand” at all), it combines both Google Play Magazines and the Currents application into one aggregated service; you know, like Apple’s Newsstand on every…

‘Asphalt 8: Airborne’ has just been announced as the iOS App Store ‘App of the Week’ and is now available free on iOS.
