While the official Google Reader app does a decent job of managing RSS feeds, it's hardly the best RSS reader for Android. This title should belong to EasyRSS, an open source app which provides a better user experience. EasyRSS relies on Google Reader as its back end, so you need a Google Reader account to be able to use the app.

EasyRSS features a sleek interface, and the app makes extensive use of gestures for navigating and reading RSS articles. The built-in rendering engine does a great job of formatting and displaying RSS articles, while the app's synchronization capabilities keep everything in sync with your Google Reader account. Using EasyRSS's sharing feature, you can push the currently viewed item to social networks, save it for later reading, or send the text of the article via email. You can also star the articles you like and configure the app to fetch embedded images. Although EasyRSS might not be the most powerful RSS reader app in the Google Play Store, it has all the essential features and is a real pleasure to use. And this alone makes EasyRSS a real keeper.
