There's a lot to like about this new app, but there are a few things that bug me...
- UI fonts/icons are too large. Main screen doesn't display much information without scrolling.
- You can only mark items as read from inside the newsfeed. Sometimes it's preferable to mark all read from the main menu.
- No Tree view from main screen.
- No Widget. It would be nice to see unread counts from home screen.

Did anyone pay attention to the fact it's a first release. Everyone wanted it and now that they got it all that seems to be done is complaining about it. Maybe take that effort and forward it along to developers for request and put it to good use. Contrary to some people's belief, Google does listen to there consumers.
I mean no harm here, just trying to better the app and the market as well as Android.

I like this along with Google News stock app for Droid Incredible. Is there an option to get notifications for new RSS items? Also what about an option for the refresh rate (like the stock Weather app, for example, is set to refresh every 3 hours; Google News stock app set to refresh every 6 hours)? If the status bar notification doesn't exist or the option to set a refresh rate (or is this *supposed* to be manual refresh by definition?), then I'll wait for official Google updates rather than get 3rd-party mods. Of course the biggest thing we all probably want to see is a widget and I eagerly await this, too.
Still this is pretty awesome for a 3-day old app. I am brand new to the whole RSS thing and also to smartphones but this is pretty convenient (and maybe even a timesink...).
