Problem to display non-english symbols (for example, Cyrillics).

Thanks, I haven't quite tested non-english languages, however, this is my next priority. I'll update this when I have something.

Looks nice, trying it today! Please see if you can make the links PPC downloadable, and if you haven't already, make it support AppToDate.

I use Egress right now, but it's WAY to too twitchy to scroll, hopefully this one is more natural.

I just read up on AppToDate, I will include support for that in the next release (along with multi-language support as well).

Excellent! I've just started using it today, noted a few bugs, and a suggestion.

I had never used Google reader before, so I didn't consider to go to the website and configure anything first. When I logged in using your client, it crashed because of a zero index. I didn't write down the exact wording, but I suspect it's because it had no subscriptions.

Another consequence of me being new to Google Reader, I did some quick initial setup of some feeds I watch and then looked at them in your client. Then I decided to move some things into different folders, but those new folders do not show up in the client, even after manually refreshing.

Wait, interesting. I refreshed once, no updates. I exited, no updates. But I've just launched it again, and the new folders are showing up. Perhaps some quirk here?

Suggestion! Is it possible to make it (at least optional) to show two lines of the headline? Overall the presentation is very nice, and the scrolling is very very nicely controlled, but there's just not enough headline shown to really see if I want to read something.

And is it possible to scroll in the Browser? I assume you're just embedding PIE, so perhaps not, but worth asking.

Thanks for the headsup on that crash...I'll get that fixed.

Whenever you change your folder configuration in the desktop client it will not reflect those changes in Speeed Reader until you exit and log in again. What I am doing is mimicking the tag/subscription/article structure in Google Reader in Speeed Reader, however, I am still working on ways to refresh the whole structure (efficiently). Long story short, that ability is coming.

I can make the two line headline an option.

Scrolling in the browser is (very) limited since I am using the webbrowser control in .NETCF. I am looking for other ways to get around this problem though. I am going to be implementing gestures sometime in the future so touch scrolling will be added in the browser tab.
