Cute Android: Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Nookapp-googlereader (An android nook app for Google Reader)

Description
Nookapp-googlereader is an open source Android project which is designed for owners of the Barnes & Noble Nook who have rooted their nook with the help of nookDevs and wish to read google reader on their nook.

The purpose of this app is to allow you to read google reader feeds via the nook. Although the soft-rooted nook already contains a feed viewer, it neither formats the feeds for the nook nor allows you to keep track of what’s been read or will allow you to save entries for viewing later. Google reader allows you to do both of these things. However, google reader does not format properly for the nook either. The iPad version of google reader looks nice, but assumes that the screen is touchable, which for the nook is incorrect.

So, The developer developed this app in order to alleviate the above problems. Hopefully with time, it will alleviate all problems and even add a couple features you didn’t think you could have.
