Google Reader App Optimized for Tablets

Google has rolled out an update to their RSS reader, Google Reader, today, optimizing the experience for tablets. Users will find the refreshed UI falls in line with other recently updated Google apps/services, including Google News and search. The intuitive split-pane display offers headlines and sources on the left with full articles on the right. Simple, but very effective use of a large tablet display. Don’t bother looking for the “mark previous as read” button as it’s now accessible with a long-press.
