I just downloaded the Official Google Reader app from the market. No widget yet.

There is a dearth of official apps for google's own services on google's own mobile OS. No official Google Reader App, no official widget. That may be because they work on optimizing the mobile versions of those web-services, to obviate the need for an additional app. You've already got the browser -- why install an app for a web-service? This 2008 ...

Android doesn't have a built-in RSS feed reader, but there are many RSS feed reader apps (and websites) that will happily import an OPML file. If you want to use a website, or an app with a website-synced back end, then Google Reader is very popular, and you can definitely import OPML files into Google Reader. On your device you can then either visit the ...

NewsRob Pro also fetches the full feeds. You can choose between Readability and some other methods. It works but I'm not a huge fan, it was just the best one that I found (I didn't try D7 though).

After posting the question here, I contacted all the different developers of google reader apps on the android market that I could find. So far only one developer has answered whose app does exactly what I'm looking for, but 1 is good enough! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.droidlab7.reader.pro I've tried it out on a Gawker Media RSS ...

I would recommend another way of fetching RSS feeds to your cell phone: Synchronize News Reader to your Google Account (to read news from Google Reader - it should be available there) From your 'big' computer add this URL (http://android.stackexchange.com/feeds) to your subscription in Google Reader. You should see news from Android.SE in your News Reader ...

The Old Reader's website has a list of apps that are known to use its API. The only Android app currently listed is: Listener Launcher which is an alternative Launcher, so probably does more than you want. However a quick search of the Play Store for "the old reader" comes up with: The Old Reader (unofficial) app, and the gReader (free version) (paid ...

According to my market, market differs according to your country, there is no "official google reader" app. May I suggest downloading NewsRob, it's in the market and there are two versions; paid and free, and even the free version features a widget to launch the application, which is simple and light, and it even has a very good feature, you can make the app ...

I use this technique from this page http://labnol.blogspot.in/2007/10/merge-multiple-rss-feeds-feedburner-mix.html to aggregate my feeds in feedburner and feed them to Flipboard. Step 1: Go to the Yahoo! Pipes website and Create a new Yahoo! Pipe. Step 2: Drag-n-drop the "Fetch Feed" tab from the Sources tab to the main drawing panel. Step 3: ...

I recognize this as a recommendation question which will probably be closed quickly. I'm a big fan of RssDemon, and have been using it consistently for the past 2 years. It allows you total control of your feeds, including subscribing individually, or importing an opml file created by another feedreader to rapidly gear up. I use it mainly for its ...

Hi I personnaly use gReader which has an integrated browser that lets you load the article inside the reader ! no need to open a new browser window, it's a no-friction process !

RssDemon imports OPML files. JustReader says it does, but I couldn't find it and have asked the dev about it.

so it turns out android as an operating system doesn't support anything other the basic http authentication! so there won't be any readers out there that can support this :(

From your Home Screen go to Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications and find gReader. Then click the Clear Cache and Clear Data button. This may lead to you having to sign back in but it will synch with your feeds so you won't really lose anything.

Try clearing the data and cache for the app (Settings -> Applications -> Manage apllications) and then syncing. Hopefully it will work after that.

I assume you have tried the web-based version. Interestingly enough, if you add a shortcut to it it has a special icon. I've tried some of the other ones and seem to always go back to the web-based version.
