So far, I love it! My import took less than an hour -- on the morning of July 2, when all the Google Reader orphans were looking for a new home at the same time.

It's close enough to the Google Reader interface that the transition has been mostly painless. My biggest beef is that the right-side scroller is a little hard to see and find. Seriously. That's my biggest problem!

Nice, clean, simple. Win.

Start the app, it prompts me for email address and password. I assume I have to sign up - but there is no help, no link to sign up, nothing. Very frustrating.

No way to sign up using the existing mail account. Required permission for the Google Account connection: "Associate you with your public Google profile".

Hm... nope.

Now you can sign up using your mail account: this feature was added recently.

Great to know, thanks!

Since Google announced that Reader will not be available after July, I'll suggest to import your feeds to The Old Reader :)
