Is there a working Google Reader unread feed indicator? Some sort of applet that checks for new unread messages from Google reader and displays their title in a drop down menu or through the notify OSD. Most of the apps I found were either broken or outdated;

  • GrNotify isn't updated anymore
  • Cloudsn doesn't support Google's 2-step verfication
  • Feed Indicator just doesn't work, etc.

PS: I dislike Liferea and Lightread just doesn't work that well as an indicator but is an awesome reader.

i guess we will have to wait until someone build a reader notifier :( – Suhaib Oct 22 '12 at 1:47
Hopefully that would happen soon because it's a becoming a necessity – Vagrant232 Oct 22 '12 at 7:15
