    I'm very excited about Currents, but the darn thing will just not update unless I do so manually, which to me is pointless because by the time the thing finishes updating, I could have gone to each site separately and gotten my news.

    So I set it to sync in the background over Wifi and 3G every 6 hours, only while charging. I figured while I had it charging overnight that it would update. Nope. Then I noticed that I don't have auto sync on, so I do that and have only Currents checked. Go to bed while charging, wake up 8 hours later, still no updates. I have the same news stories from Friday on this thing.

    It shouldn't be this complicated to get this working, so I'm thinking I've got to be doing something wrong. Can anyone help me?

    Same problem. It is a great interface, but I like how google reader lets you know what feeds are new so you don't waste time looking through everything. Hopefully they can improve currents more.

    Currents may be great on a tablet, but on a phone it sucks. I can't figure out how to make the article text larger. Changing it to Large in the settings doesn't seem to make any difference. And I don't get the syncing issue either. The quickest interval I can select is 6 hours. What??? Seriously?? So, for now I'm sticking with Pulse. And I still prefer Pulse's interface.

    Hey, Pulse is kinda slick! Thanks guys! I wish I could set it to update only while charging but hey, at least it works!

    Are you talking about Google Currents? I can't even get that far, and I'm stumped. I've installed it and uninstalled it several times. When I launch it after it installs, the only thing that I can do is "sync" my default account, or add another account. I don't see where I can select anything to have sync'd. What am I missing?
