Coordinates with the Windows Phone app.

I like that I can update on either the phone or my tablet, and read the articles either place.

Used to be the best reader app I've tried

Update: Like others, I've found that News Blur doesn't work. Until it does, this app is just taking up space. I've finally found a reader app for my surface that I can use. Minus one star because I shouldn't be required to have a Google Reader account to read RSS feeds, but given the other features of this program I can live with that. And at least this app doesn't call itself an RSS reader and then require a Google apps account.

Great, but...

This app works as it should, simple, light and uncluttered and syncs back with the server. The only suggestion would be to please remove the bottom right corner buttons (mobilized, up and down arrows) and put them at the top, so the actual article can go all the way to the bottom. On a surface rt the article area is cramped as it is. Thank you..

I love this Google Reader app

This is by far the best Google Reader app I have ever used. The developer obviously spent a lot of time designing the UX. It is consistent with the look and feel other Windows 8 apps and works great. I enjoy being able to move quickly between my different feeds, mark entire feeds as read, quickly expand the article viewing area or launch it in IE. Well done.

Scrolls too fast with a mouse but lovely overall.

For seemingly only one version the scrolling issue was fixed. Unfortunately this means I'm not going to use the app but I will say that besides that it's great. You can read feeds within the app which I love, the layout is nice and easy (but could use an "oldest first" option), and it syncs well.

Best Google Reader app on Windows 8 Store

Simple, elegant and efficient interface. Full featured RSS feed manager. Responsive developer. This is the first non-free Windows 8 Store app that I found compelled to purchase.

I bought it; that says it all

This reader is exactly what I wanted; an app frontend for Google Reader. The interface is clean, has a perfect layout for tablets, and is customizable. The only thing keeping this app from being 5 stars is the lack of settings synchronization. Suggestion to the devs: use the built-in APIs to synchronize my Google credentials and settings across all my Windows 8 devices!

Beautiful App / Would Love "Magazine" View Option!

Its a REALLY great reader (rss) app with a nice looking and easy to use UI. I would LOVE to have an option to view feed stories in a "magazine style" view! That would make this app perfect! UPDATE: Pocket Added THANK YOU! FYI For Surface Owners: Lowering synced stories amount (~50 each) and removing pictures from preview helps performance greatly.

One of my most-used apps

I like the simple, fast UI and the fact that reading an article on one device marks it read everywhere. This is an app I use many times every day.

A definite must have!

A great Google feed reader. Simple to use with a clean interface. This and the matching Windows Phone app are a must have!
