bjs229: I'll check Readability out. There is a bewildering number of apps out there, and I've not heard of that one.
JayJ: so far, I have Daily Comic and Android Comic Reader. I like the latter, but it's a bit annoying (beyond having to be connected) because so far I haven't figured out how to make it go to the first comic strip downloaded, instead of the most recent. Or to mark them "read" very easily. The other issue so far is while Gocomics.com (where I believe Comic Reader goes) has a lot of strips I like, it doesn't have them all, surprisingly. And it's not because of King Features banning it - apparently, that's only an issue with Daily Comic.
I've been noodling around with Google Current, and like it because it does, at least, partially download stories, but many of the sites I want to read offline come through the RSS feeds (?) and they dont' always seem to be updated in the most timely of manners, which I was surprised by.
I really like the way Taptu brings news through, but I see some of the same problems and there seems to be less story - and frequently no pictures. I even use Pulse for some things, but it's the least effective, if I'd like to read more or see the pictures.
