To start using Minimal Reader, you need to add it on your homescreen as a widget : long press on your home screen and select "Widgets".
Please read before commenting : I merged the pro and free version because I want everyone to enjoy this widget as much as I do. I develop this on my free time, alone, so please be tolerant in the comments ! I'm not a company, I'm just an android fan like you ! If you have problems or find a bug, please E-MAIL ME ! I'll be happy to answer you.
** News reading has never been easier, even with large amount of sources :
_ Display the latest news titles from your favourite websites/blogs right on your desktop and easily scroll through them.
_ Import your Google Reader Subscriptions or add your own RSS/Atom feeds.
_ Click on a news title to open the full story in a customizable Pop-up window, works in offline mode too !
_ Swipe left or right on a pop-up to read the next or previous news article.
_ Customize the widget and the pop-up to match your home screen.
_ Many settings available : Filter the News by age, auto scroll, auto refresh ...
_ You can add as many feeds as you want on the same widget or separate them in several widgets.
If you have any questions, troubles or suggestions for improvement, E-Mail me !! I'll answer and try to fix the problem asap.

I take every suggestion in consideration!
Note : If you are having issues with your feeds disapearing, clear app data, uninstall, and delete any external backup of the like Titanium does. Then Re-install the app.
Note : The user credentials permission are for logging in to google reader with the google account registered on your phone, it's much more secure than a manual login.

If you like this app, buy me a beer by getting the Pro version with more widgets, more features and constant updates.

I would like to suggest you to make more size options for the widget. (i know it is "minimal", but a option is always nice) I like the app! Nice job!

Love this app, but it's responsible for a ridiculous 35% of my phone's power consumption! 2 feeds updating every 4 hours, CM7. Optimise please!

First off, I would like to thank you "Joaquim Vergès" for adding Google Reader feature to the free version in exchange of the Ads. Fair enough, this gives the complete impression on the app, by which I'm very delighted to use for reading my news. However, other widget options with scrollable feature can make the pop-up feature of this app "really standing out". I find it easier to navigate and push the app's pop-up feature forward. BTW, EA+ also have the pop-up feature so this is not the only option.

Only wish the widget was a bit more readable. It needs bigger text.

Needs 'Select All' when importing from Google. Bug: Says no unread items when 100s. Widget text too small.

Great widget. One small niggle though... in the 2x1 configuration, the posts are sometimes too large for the background.

spoke too soon with my post below - the scrolling is fine, you just need to scroll the TITLE and not the actual article itself and it works fine. dont know if that was intentional or not. definitely deserves 5 stars now, but please do add faster cycle! thanks
