Google Reader apps for Android

So what do you use on your Android phone or tablet for this? So far, I have three, all of which are fantastic and the devs have plans for syncing after the shutdown of Google Reader.

1. Press

2. gReaderPro

3. Reader

Press is my favourite.

Used to be a gReader pro user until press was launched and think both are good but press has the edge.

My list isn't in any particular order, but Reader takes the cake for me. Readability support wins.

Google might buy Whatsapp for close to a billion dollars.

Interesting.

Google Currents
Pulse
Flipboard

Are my favorites. You can add your google Reader RSS subs, and add more from their suggested ones too.


And for read it later purposes I find pocket very good.

I think you posted this in the wrong thread...

Makes sense though, they always buy out smaller companies and use the talent to develop their own services. I just wish I'd started one of these companies that gets bought out by tech giants for $1 billion

I use Pulse exclusively now. I use to use Taptu as well, but have now migrated completely to Pulse.

I tried Currents and Flipboard, but don't like them.

Google Currents?

You can import your existing rss feeds to Currents.

Currently using Google Reader. I dont need complicated reader. Most probably will move back to Opera Mini feeds which loads very fast (and uses much less data and hence not so heavy battery consumption)
