This is a tablet optimized reader and I'm loving it more than pulse on my Xoom

I would agree. Have been using this for a couple of days and has replaced newsrob as my go-to Google reader app. Love the interface and new features are coming quickly.

I think it needs to be a lil faster fetching feeds and I hope they offer a White on black theme.

Question Offline for Newsr?
I would agree that Newsr is definitely onto something, however I think its missing one key thing which is offline capability (download/read/sync when online).

Can anyone think of a reason this couldn't be accomplished?

This was my exact question I had before buying. Thanks for clarifying.

This can be done as NewRob already does this on Android phones. I would like to see offline capabilities that downloads the entire article and not just the RSS feed blurb with a link. I have seen other RSS apps be able to do this.

considering that i've been using the official google reader app cause that's what i'm used to on my N1, this is a huge improvement, consider it bought.

Just bought. Very nice interface and quite snappy. Some room for improvement but snappy none-the-less.

I agree and would like to see some offline component to it but that is not a dealbreaker for me - i'll always have 3G (hopefully soon 4G) coverage but for those with Wi-Fi only tablets that will likely be a must have part of this app.

Kuddos to the developer for optimizing this for Honeycomb. Now I get to ditch Pulse!!
