Perhaps you're not really into news feed readers with stunning design, smooth flipboard-like effects and swipable highlights and that kind of stuff (like they use to be lately). If you're more practical (or classical) and you want to see your list of subscriptions and articles at a glance, access them quick and fast, and manage your content smartly, by applying filters and other parameters, check this out.
First off, no need to sign up: you can add your rss feed manually or import your Google Reader subscriptions (you'll have to allow access to the app). Once done, you can start favoriting your blogs and articles, create folders and organize your stuff. The app is set in a user-friendly UI and minimalistic layout. Just three streams: favorites, folders and subscriptions. Tap them to access the content.
You can personalize your content with Smart News Filtering which allows you to filter and manage news automatically by Author, Title, Content, Category, etc. Why "Smart" then? Because each filter is made up of search condition to match specific parameter and action to perform. You can also add rules for match field, criteria or action.
Likewise, you can search for content thanks to a built-in searcher, set auto-refresh interval (or do it whenever by clicking the lower right button), and sort content by newer first, older first, unread/read or hide properties.
Needless to say that you'll be able to read feeds offline, sharing content via e-mail or other sharing resources installed in your device and that it supports landscape screen orientation. It brings two homescreen widgets, 2x1 and 4x2.
Highly recommendable if you're a wily old bird in feed subscription and you probably care more about management than design.

Comments and ratings for Smart Feed Reader
I love this app but, on widget cant auto slideshow.. And I hope on next release suport 4x1 widget... Thanks...
5 stars for the filter. It could use some option regarding when to update feeds: only on wifi, shortuct to push update from another app. GUI could use some remake too.
No ads, perfect. I have some suggestions: 1. Feed storage settings (latest 20, or last 2 days, for example) 2. No need for Google Reader in new feed dialog. 3. Accounts and Sync entry.
Widget for home screen is better than a lot of paid apps, feed is accurate obviously. Awesome, thanks to developer!
Not quite usable yet, but encouraged enough to try it again after the next update.
Nice, simple and excellent filtering options. Perfect for me!
Looking for a Google news reader that filters out sites (i.e. LA Times) and words/phrases (i.e. Paris Hilton). Uninstalled.
