With more newspapers, magazines, and publishing companies moving away from print media and into digital form every day, managing all of your subscriptions and content is becoming increasingly more difficult. Google hopes to fix those issues with its newly launched Google Play Newsstand app.

The app currently provides access to more than 1900 publications with both free and paid business models. The Android app allows users to chose which newspapers, magazines, blogs, and websites that the user may want to read, and then formats them all into a mobile friendly version for easy reading on your smartphone or tablet. The service is a direct competitor to Flipboard, and is expected to replace Google Currents, and will allow offline access to selected content as well.
