Smart Feed Reader is a news feed reader with interesting filters and management features.
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.

Honestly, top app. I have been looking for this and searching for months.. finally one that works. I have feeds from iTunes Rss Atom Feeds and loads perfectly, however with no images
Combines beautifully well with verbose RSS feeds such as the leaders from "the economist", and with scientific RSS feeds such as those generated by Pubmed. Easy way to keep up to date with new papers coming out. Overall very nice interface, but the work
I downloaded this mainly for the opml import feature which does not work at all.
Plz add more functionallity of sharing, doesnt shares feed with all apps like fb,g+,twitter,etc.
The UI has a learning curve, hence 4★ rather than 5. But otherwise I really like it. Best feature is not being stuck with fixed menu of preselected feeds, but can add own choices of URLs. Thanks!
Lean, fast, easy to use, requiring only few permissions. I like it :-)
Now that Google Reader is sitting down, I've been scrambling, like many others, to find a replacement. Very few apps render my feeds correctly (this probably doesn't affect many people: I read a lot of math blogs and many feed readers screw up the formula
