It’s been a long time coming, but the official Google Reader app for Android is finally here. Let’s jump into the features, shall we?
The app supports all the basics you’d expect like unread counts, friends, sharing, liking, and starring, but it also has a whole lot more, including:
Full subscription features (subscribe and search from your phone)
Search (Official Google Reader Blog)
The official Google Reader app for Android apparently supports most (if not all) of the features that made the desktop version of Google Reader famous, including the ability to share to social networks (such as Facebook and Twitter).
Despite boasting a powerful web app, Google’s entrance upon Android is potentially making a few iPhone developers (like Byline and Reeder) nervous, as it probably is only a matter of time before iOS fans receive something similar for their devices.
Do you have an Android device? What are your thoughts regarding Google’s latest app?
