Hi there, NewsAce dev speaking,

Thank you for using NewsAce guys! Regarding the complaint concerning the requirement of Google credentials, I’d like to clarify that we NEVER STORE or use your account info for any purpose other than logging you into Google Reader. We only ask for your Google login and password because the app utilizes Google Reader feed management and search features.

If you are still concerned about releasing your Google credentials, our next update will allow you to use NewsAce without having to log into Google Reader. This will still allow you access to our list of recommended feeds, and you can manage your own custom feed selections.

    App works fine for free version!

    I have been using this app for few minutes, and it seems to run fine. (Nook Color) I am able to make the font LARGE, which is something I love. (You tap on the icon that looks like a starburst) My only complaint is that there is nothing that would show access to anything Christian; or news such as Fox. I would love to see a more balanced news selection and other information. Not everyone is a CNN type of follower. I would like the ability to have those choices. I opened this app without logging into Google Gmail, perhaps that would make some difference in what news or information would be available. I will leave my name here as I stand by my words. I do not post anonymously. Cheryl Togashi

    I find this good for reading the headlines but I must be doing something wrong as the articles take forever and ever to load. I end up not being able to not read the full article. For headlines I am finding this fine but not for indepth. Maybe I am just not sure how to work the app properly.

    Requiring an Account

    As for the comments about needing to sign in with an account, you can use it without signing into anything.

    Good while it lasted

    This was one of the best apps for checking my podcast feeds, easy to use, and quick to access. However, now that Google is getting rid of their reader come July, it is going to be useless for me since there is no way to manually add my feeds or to even search for them unless I'm logged in to Google's reader. The dev's need to have that fixed before then otherwise, it'll just be wasting space on my nook.
