A few days ago, Google released the long-desired official Google Reader app. The app brings the full power of Reader to Android without needing to navigate the mobile website version.
It supports multiple accounts, sharing, and even subscribing to feeds right from the app. It also offers a few unique features, like the ability to use the volume keys to navigate up and down, and folder management.
The app syncs all preferences and feeds on the fly, meaning there's no offline mode yet. But it's likely safe to assume that true offline reading will be coming soon. The official Reader app is available now in the Market and works on devices running Android 1.6 or higher (meaning even the classic G1 will support it).
To download, search the Market for Google Reader (there are lots of 3rd party apps, so make sure you get the right one), tap here from your phone, or scan this QR Code.
