The Google Reader Blog has announced, that  they have added the ability to include a blogroll of your feeds on your site and also, they have improved the Google Reader Mobile interface for iPhone users.

The blogroll feature can be accessed by going to your Google Reader Settings  page and clicking on the "tags" link. Once you are there, any public tags can be added to your blogroll by clicking on the "add a blogroll to your site" link. Then copy and paste the snippet of code into your blog. For an example, head over to Steve Lacey blog, and you can see blogroll in action over on the right.

Google Reader added new features for mobile users and iPhone users. Mobile users can now view Google Reader Trends data on which feeds are viewed on mobile, as well as the ability to change the number of items displayed at once, or disable reformatting linked web sites for mobile phones. The latter in particular is especially useful for iPhone and other smart phones that are capable of properly displaying sites.

This release also includes some additional changes for iPhone users. While the functionality is the same as previous versions, we've changed the user interface to make it easier to navigate and select often-used links. We've also moved the navigational buttons to the top, since it's easy to return to the top of the page by just tapping on the status bar.
