Official Google Reader app updated, adds widgets

Google has updated the official Google Reader app to version 0.9.2, adding two new homescreen widgets, a "mark previous as read" button and Russian translations.

The new button on the reading list allows you to mark anything above the current screen as read, saving precious time, energy and finger strain. The "news ticker" widget allows you to bring a selection of items to your home screen in a similar way to the stock News and Weather app, while the "unread items" widget creates a shortcut to a particular feed, label or person with the number of unread items shown next to it.

Market links and a QR code can be found after the jump. [Google Mobile blog]
