Top questions from the FAQ:
Q:The Google Reader unread count doesn't match the NewsRob unread count
A:NewsRob only shows the unread count of the articles that it fetched and are stored locally now. You can set the number of articles you want to see locally using Settings/Local Cache/Reading List. Also relevant is Settings/Sync/Sync Type. If you have "Unread Only" there then NewsRob will try during each sync to remove articles locally that you read and fill them up with unread articles from your Google Reader account.
Q:Not all of the feeds in Google Reader show up on NewsRob. Why's that?
A: NewsRob will only show the feeds for which there are currently articles on your phone.
If you have 300 feeds on Google Reader, but the most recent 500 articles, if that is what you set capacity-setting to, only are in 90 feeds, then you will only see 90 feeds. When new articles arrive that are in other feeds, those feeds will be displayed then.
Also NewsRob will only show the feeds that match the current selection. That means if you look at the label "android" it will only show you the feeds that are below the "android" label. Additionally if you set NewsRob to "hide read articles" you will only see feeds with unread articles.

Can't show the name of folders (in Chinese) properly. Nice offline function.

Amazing app if you're using google reader. If only it could be moved to the external storage.
If it was any slower it would be a still picture. EVEN slower than Reader from Google.
Works with Galaxy Tab
Response time of list rendering is suffering on newer versions. Images and ads should be asynchronous. Needs optimization. Very annoying.
Annoyingly even when set to user the SD card for the cache it doesn't.
Absolute favorite- use it every day!
use it everyday!
Better UI than competitors (gReader), but slower sync. Much preferred.
Sync looks to be broken currently
