Other Comments: 

Newsify has gone under a major overhaul. It was once a RSS Reader client to use with your Google Reader services. Now that Google Reader services has left the building. They have gone with the Feedly Reader services. It provides the same services if not better. Newsify still has the same interface and is extremely accessible and easy to use.
