Application opens quickly and does not consume much data traffic. Many will appreciate the swipe gesture to mark an article read / unread. There version of Google Chrome browser. It is available free store. Unfortunately only a widget application include small size (4×1) and share options of the social network is not functioning as intended.

Google Currents. The best interface. Swipe gestures, how they are arranged feeds, sharing options, everything is very carefully worked. It is a pleasure to read news with this application. It synchronizes with your Google account. Unfortunately consumes a lot of resources and data traffic. Not recommended for slow connections and does not include widgets. Sync takes forever.

Minimal Reader. I was pleasantly surprised by this application. It is based on widgets, very configurable, with access to Google Reader. Holo-style interface can be customized at will. Widgets are available in all sizes and versions are developed. Consumes very few resources and data traffic. There are options including display pictures in the widget, for low data consumption.
