Does anyone here use a blog reader app?  Recommendations (for an Android)?

I use Feedly and Google Reader; Feedly because it gives a nice overview of the posts (I follow 200+ blogs and add about 20 every week, so I need something that will help me cherry-pick what sounds interesting), and Google Reader because Feedly's content management system is crap. Just for saving and 'marking everythig as read', I use Google Reader.

Both can be found in the play store. If not, I can provide links.

I use gReader Pro. It cost a little money, but I think it was worth it.

It never marks everything read by accident, which was the problem I was having with the official Reader app when I got it. I can read individual blogs or the whole list, it lets me switch to viewing the webpage, and checks to let me know when there are updates. (I can't compare it with Feedly since I haven't used that one.)
