    I've went through tons of apps, and always just end up using Google Reader mobile.

    I did the exact same thing. Google Reader works great. I recommend first accessing it through the web, setup your lists etc.. and then just load it up on your Eris. You can also add it as an icon to your homescreen by bookmarking it and attaching an icon to the bookmark.

    Cool Icon tip, but I hate the actual icon. Piece of paper with the favicon? Lame. Why cant it just use the favicon as the icon?

    I've been using Google Reader for years. It is definitely the best way to take advantage of RSS.

    I know what you mean but I have several different icons/bookmarks in a folder on the homescreen. Guess I'm just too organized to have 7 different pages of screens. Thats what I dont like on my iPhone is scrolling 10 pages to find an app.

    Have you tried using folders? I've got 7 almost-full home screens shrunk down to 3 using folders for groups of related apps.

    Maybe resurrecting this is the wrong approach, but there wasn't an actual recommendation for an app, which was the OP's question. That is also my question. Is there an app rather than using a shortcut method? That would be much better for me.

    Thanks so much!

    I've been trolling here for some weeks and had not yet needed to create and account. Now I can say congrats to OTD on the moderator status!

    I use GReader Notifier and like it a lot. A also have a bookmark to google reader. Before 2.1 v3, when links wouldn't open properly, I used the bookmark widget when I got a notification. Now, the links work and it's a breeze! :)

    I've taken the bait for Feedr and so far I am loving it. Good, good stuff.

    +1 for FeedR. Simple, looks good, comes with a nice looking widget, syncs feeds with Google Reader. Only $.99 and worth it.

    Feedr just updated to 2.0. It now syncs up and down with Google Reader. Very sweet! Totally worth $1.
