It would be nice if there were an Android app after the iOS app is done. :-)
We have at least one Android client supporting us.
See current apps list here:

Wow. 10x the votes for an Android client vs an iOS one and iOS gets planned?
It would be nice if there were an Android app BEFORE the iOS app is done...
please!!! We need an Android app.

I tried to replace Reader with Feedly and it was awful :(
Everything has to be sorted into folders, it's all graphics-y, and the widget is a flipboard type thing of ten stories from one folder that seems to update whenever it feels like it. Oh and when you open a link they use their own crummy browser!
I just want a list of my feeds and then I want to open them each on their own. I'd like to be able to put one of those feeds on my home screen as a widget so I can flick through it on the fly. I wouldn't mind being able to tag and star as well, but that's not a deal breaker.
You guys are awesome!
I'm already using Old Reader on my PCs. On Android devices I still use the google Reader app.
But what will happen on july when google Reader is gone? We need this app!!!

yeah because there are much more iOS devices than Android.... not to mention that huge percent of rss users (the "techies") prefer the closed off apple platform over the community modable (kinda) open-source android.
how about we agree on they releasing an API first and every platform for themselves after that?
I prefer this to Feedly but I do 60% of my RSS-ing on my android...
why not cooperate with NEWSROB(http://newsrob.blogspot.com/)? Its the most popular app for android. And they are looking for API
Charles Nicholson commented
API plus app please!
Mauricio Alfonso commented
And please compatible with 2.1!
Vladimir Saburov commented
iphone/ipad first, then android
Christian Syska commented
I agree that an API would be a good alternative. You could even go so far as replicating most of the Google Reader API, which would make it very easy for existing apps which work with Reader to support The Old Reader as well and would mean that apps pop up even faster.
Péter Wolf commented
don't spend a minute on iOS or Android apps just start releasing an API (it probably wouldn't matter that much if its cloning the google reader API or not).
the apps would appear in an instant always following your API progress.
not to mention that with an API any other platforms could join in (WinPhone, WinMetro, desktop clients)
I do see however that this can add to your server usage while it probably wouldn't create any new revenues. (although you can make API access for one's profile a premium feature, but keep in mind that Android is also the mobile platform for the poorest smartphone customers - see eastern europe and such)
I want to switch to the old reader, and I want to flattr it, but until there is an android app that can replace the Google reader app an its new items widget, I cannot commit my userage or my money, because it just doesn't meet my needs yet.
Is better a web app.
An API for Android apps like gReader or just an Android app . . . with offline access !!!
Native app is not the long-term solution for today fast-paced technology development...
Responsive Web Design and/or REST API would be a better more perspective investment.
Also you should think of implementing API by existing Google Reader specifications, it would gain you native app clients for 'free' and support of their developers.
This should be your priority in next three months.

Would happily pay a premium for an Android app (with offline access) or, even better, a decent (Google Reader-compatible?) API

Android appel before the iOS zone please ! We are a few more millions !
Phil Schaefer commented
native android app would be cool. But not after the iOS app is done. BEFORE!
