Google Reader suggestions


I have been using Google Reader a little bit, and there are some things that I would love to see. (I have sent this feedback to Google Labs, but I wanted to post it here so if some Googler had extra 20% time)


  1. Personal url for the mobile version of the interface.  Google already does this for rss feeds of "starred" items in Google Reader, and for sharing calendars in Google Calendar.  This will make it easier view on a cell phone, where if may be hard to keep entering email address and password.

  2. Provide a way, on the regular and mobile version, to mark the posts that are in the current view as read.

  3. Be able to only have certain rss feeds appear in the mobile view.  For example, there isn't any reason to show podcast on a cell phone.
