Speeed Reader v0.83 Build 3503

Speeed Reader is a Google Reader client for Windows Mobile devices.

It allows users to interact with their Google Reader accounts (view articles, share articles, etc.) in a more native method than using the mobile web-based version. Speeed Reader will be adding functions and features to make it a must-have Windows Mobile application.

Known Issues (to be fixed in future releases)
* Any changes made to subscriptions, tags, etc. in the desktop client will not be reflected in Speeed Reader unless you restart the application
* There is a memory leak in the internal web browser (.NET Compact Framework issue, out of my control). The internal browser will grab memory and not release it when using it to view articles. The problem is exacerbated even more if the article contains a lot of images. Please uncheck ‘Download Images’ to minimize this issue. You can also view articles in your default external browser to fully minimize this issue. Once Speeed Reader is closed, all memory is released back to the device however.
* Windows Mobile 6.5 users, the implementation of Pocket IE has changed, which negatively effects the intuitiveness of the internal web browser. Please use the external web browser. See settings for more info.
* Installing Speeed Reader to an SD card will prevent the application from running properly. Please install to your device memory. This issue is currently being researched.

* Windows Mobile Standard 5/6.0/6.1/6.5
* .NET Compact Framework v3.5
