I downloaded the Google Reader app, but I have to say I'm not a fan of its setup. It takes me about three taps to get an article.
Does anyone know if it is possible to enable a preview pane, with a list of your subscriptions on the left? Basically, I am just trying to get it to work like Google Reader through a regular web browser (which I thought was perfect), but which I can't seem to load on the Xoom.
P.S. I have a really stupid, minor question (more stupid and minor than the google reader question) that I didn't see an appropriate thread for, so here it goes: is there a good widget for showing the time and weather? I'm not impressed with the clock-widget that comes on the xoom, and while I've tried to download a couple of widgets from the marketplace, they don't come out looking right. Do you have to enable 3D on your homepage or something? Thanks!

I am really considering trying out newsr Chris but I am concerned that it will be missing some of the features that I have come to enjoy on my iPad (instapaper integration as well as webkit for opening the full page .) I may give it a shot, I am just not sure yet.

Wow! Damn you, Chris, I thought I had a tighter grip on that $2.99 in my pocket but it seems to have mysteriously floated over to your account.
Seriously, great looking app. I need to get off my *** and start working on some apps of my own. (Working on an app for myself to help me with running my 4th Ed D&D game, figure I'll put it out there if I write it well enough to share.)

I wanted to update this to say I've done a lot with Newsr in the last week or so, so please give it a look if you haven't recently. Tonight I added a few highly requested features:
- Token authorization uses any Google account now, not just gmail.com and googlemail.com accounts.
- Can now view starred articles in the label view.
- Implemented the native “Share” feature of Google Reader.

Thanks for the fast turn around. It did seem to do the trick and everything seems to be in order and working fine. Will recommend this app to anyone and everyone. Has completely replaced newsrob now that I can read my starred items.
