NewsRob hands down.... It works just like Viigo for Blackberry, except you get the benefit of managing your feeds through Google Reader (which Viigo has not been able to figure out).

Oh and you also don't have the horrible memory leaks that came with Viigo...

Do you google reader people use the website version, or is there a specific app? I am just using the website for now and its awesome on the droid, but i just think an app would be slightly more convenient for some reason.

Just using the webpage version of Google Reader here. It is amazing and feels like I'm using an app. Take a look at Google News. Just as nice.

Podtrapper

I just came from the darkside (blackberry) and used podtrapper there
So far I have not been able to find a better pod catcher. The developer has said he would make podtrapper available for Android. I'll have to wait.

The podtrapper gives you the ability to know what is downloaded, What is in the queue to download, What has been read and deleted, You can move the feeds up and down the list, you can fastforward a little or a lot, or go to the end, has a large search engine and allows you to enter a URL manualy.

Look here for more info. Maybe put a bug in his ear.

Right now I have Blue RSS and AnyRSS readers. AnyRSS widgets are very pleasing to look at. But one question, how do you personalize your own feed using that widget? They provide a bunch of feeds but not really on sports and such. It has a place to enter in a feed, but where do I get that info?

Also Blue RSS is good too and can import from google reader and has a way to search for feeds if you dont know an exact address (like myself). However their is only one widget option and i guess the feeds display in chronological order from all feeds. Would like a way to sort them.

With AnyRSS, one widget is dedicated to one feed, which is nice, BUT there is no way to switch feeds in the same widget, so you need multiple widgets for different feeds. Big waste of space.

Both are good but both can improve

Is there a reader that has a nice widget and CAN switch feed in that single widget? so i use up less real estate? if not... hope a dev reads this because thats a good idea haha.

NewsRob has everything you could need, except for a widget, but really...is that a deal breaker?
It syncs with Google Reader, lets you email, post to twittter, facebook, text, gtalk (I think). It has a phenomenal interface! So much better than Viigo was for the features it has. Unfortunately, it doesn't support podcasts or the other extended features Viigo offered.
