gNewsReader started as a standalone Google Reader client. It was launched as a native BlackBerry 10 in February 2013. However, since Google announced terminations of its popular reader service, it has evolved into a client for newly formed reader services, namely Feedly and NewsBlur.
gNewsReader offers full read/unread synchronization, access to tags and individual feeds, starring stories, and swiping to next stories are all included. Also there’s more advanced stuff like sharing to Instapaper, Pocket, and Readability.
gNewsReader provides extensive support for physical QWERTY keyboards and will let you operate even at full screen without any issue.
Feedly recommends gNewsReader as its mobile app for BlackBerry on their official page.
