    Right now, I use newsrob to sync with google reader. I am just really surprised google doesnt have their own app for this. Does anyone know if they are coming out with one?

    I have used News Rob and I did not like it that much. I tried others but felt the same way about those as well. I too wish Google would make a Google Reader for android, in the meantime, I have Google Reader bookmark and a bookmark shortcut to GR on one of my screens.

    I have found gReader the best for me. Syncs perfectly, enables to send header summaries and or links in a shared format. Articles easy to open. I am using free version

    I have been using Pulse and have been pretty happy with it so far.

    Yes that one is a bit easier on the eyes. I like gReader because it looks like BerryReader from the Blackberry.

    I was a Viigo user when I had my Blackberry. It was decent at best.
