Google Reader on Windows Mobile: Speeed Reader

I have been looking for a decent app for getting Google Reader on Winmo for a while, since i’m not a fan of Google Readers mobile web interface.

I recently came across an app called Speeed Reader, and currently using  v. 0.7.  I really like being able to read my feed through a native interface, its far quicker and more intuitive than the mobile web version.

Unfortunately, the refresh function doesn’t work on my device (HTC Touch Pro) very well, either it crashes out or seems to get caught in a loop so it doesn’t update my reader account with the posts I have read.  Also at the moment it displays all your feeds even if there are no unread items in them, it would be cool to have an option to only see feeds which have unread posts (Like Reader).

Overall, great app with a lot of promise, will be following its progress.

Google Reader Twitter Integration

In an attempt to find a use for my twitter account, I have being trying to integrate it with Google Reader.

Currently using Twitter Feed to import the Atom feed from my Google Reader shared feed. It works ok, but unfortunately doesn’t pick up the comments from the shared item into the tweet itself. It would be much better if Google actually integrated twitter into reader in the first place.
