    We are excited to bring a new edition to Droid forums google currents in the Nexus Insider. We will look to post news, tips, and info about our beloved Galaxy Nexus and plus it really looks good on the nexus. To those asking "why google current I can just check the forums or use the df app". Yes you can but sometimes on the go or while on a break you just want to get the current news in the android world and on df and google current does that in a visibly pleasing ui. So guys check us out and if you have and tips you want to share or ideas you want to contribute feel free to post here. If we find the tip useful we will add it and give credit to the person who post the tips.

    Check us out....and stay current:

    Get Google Currents for Android, iPhone and iPad


    and to find the Nexus insider do the following: Open google current hit the open book/newspaper looking icon, scroll down toward the bottom and you will see "rescue Squad Tips" and "Verizon Nexus Insider".

    Pilot25 you are right it can not be found in search just yet. According to google current we have to hit 200 subscribers to get to the "search level".

    So in order to access it you have to click this link from your phone browser: Droid Forums on Google Currents

    no "open book/newspaper looking icon" on currents.

    went to library and add but no "droid forums" or "verizon nexus insider" or "rescue squad tips" listed. I checked every category.

    You won't find them labelled like the terms. From the home screen in Currents, touch the "Add more (+)" icon.
    On the next page, don't select any of the categories - just search using the terms "rescue Squad Tips" and
    "Verizon Nexus Insider", one at a time. (Don't use the quotation marks)
    Each will appear with a RSS symbol but you have to look at the URL for droidforums.net plus whatever else is behind it. Add the first one and go back and search for the other, then add the second.

    You will only have one icon in the library on the Currents home page for Droid Forum but both RSS feeds are mixed in the list of posts, at least that is how they are on my Nexus.

    I added it, but the posts contained within it are not all of or pertaining to the Nexus. There's stories that go to Thunderbolt and Droid X forums and various other non-Nexus forums.

    This is the RSS feed that searching for "Verizon Nexus Insider" returns: <![CDATA[Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum]]> . You can see there is a wide range of topics and most of the posts are not about the Nexus.

    So, either I did something wrong or you should consider renaming the feed.

    So it's not a dedicated Currents feed. We are adding an RSS feed?

    Little disappointed since we can do that with any reader.

    Still trying to figure this out. I've tried adding "Verizon Nexus Insider" per the instructions in Post #4, and I've tried adding by clicking on the link (from my phone) from post #7. Both ways result in a feed that has a mix of news from many different topics, not just the Verizon Nexus. Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks!

    You dont have to add anything its already part of the droidforums current apps.Basically The Nexus insider is just articles that are already part of the droid forums currents. So when you go into droid currents and you hit the newspaper icon you should see stories then near the bottom additional articles (ie Rescue Squad Tips, Nexus Insider, Droid 4 Insider).
