WebReader is an Adobe Air based Google Reader client for desktop.  It makes it easy to manage Google Reader subscriptions right from the desktop with options to view feeds in three viewing modes including Full, Summary, and Titles. With WebReader you can quickly manage all your subscriptions, add new feed list, and perform all the other feeds related tasks that are available in Google Reader with convenience.

After you’ve installed the application, launch it to enter Google account credentials.


Once logged in, it presents you a simple interface with navigation bar to navigate through subscribed feeds. The main window designed to be minimalistic. You can mark posts as favorite to add them in your favorite list. The utility of three different viewing modes means that other than viewing feeds separately, you can also view multiple feeds simultaneously. These options can be selected from the three viewing options on the top right corner (next to Mark all as read).


WebReader contains all the common Google Reader features,  including, adding new subscriptions, creation and management of folders and labels via the context menu, and a search box for quickly locating feeds, etc.


Overall, it is a simple desktop client for Google Reader with some additional viewing options. As it is an Adobe Air based application, therefore it works on Windows, Mac and Linux based operating systems.
