Google Reader now has an official Android application, which will, of course, help users read Atom and RSS feeds directly on their smartphones.
The new Android app supports multiple accounts, friends, unread counts, synced preferences,search, linking and sharing, and pretty much anything else you’d need.
Google says that there are a few „harder to discover features“, too, like: volume-key navigation (navigate by using your Android handset’s volume keys for ‘next’ and ‘previous’), and long-pressing on a folder or subscription (this brings up “a contextual menu that lets you rename, unsubscribe or change folders”).
You can get Google Reader for Android via Android Market – or you can scan the QR code found here at the Official Google Reader blog. The app works on any phone with Android 1.6 or higher.
