We have been posting on and about Google Reader App for various mobile phone OS lately. Google Reader is one app that needs no introduction. For those unaware, Google Reader is an application that gives you updates from various web sites. It only notifies its users about the updates and then it is upto the user if he/she wants to know more about the update.

It has been one of the most downloaded apps in the past and continues to lure its users. But the-hope-for-improvement policy should always be kept in mind. Google has announced the launch of the new Google reader App for Android phones with extra features.

Updated Features of Google Reader (Android)

  • Unread Count Widget: Choose any feed, label, person, or “all items” and get the unread count on your home screen. Clicking on the widget takes you to straight to that stream
  • News Ticker Widget: If you prefer a bit more information, you can add a larger size widget that cycles through items on any stream you want in Reader. Clicking any headline will take you to the article, while clicking the folder will take you to that stream

  • Mark Previous as Read: If you’ve used the mobile version of Reader before and missed this feature, it’s now back! As you scroll down your reading list, hit “Mark previous as read” at any time to only mark things above the screen as read

  • Language Translator: Currently, language translator can translate only to Russian

The App is available for download for users having Android 1.6 or higher and the widget functionality is available for Android 2.2 or higher.

Users can download the app from here.
