The appeal of Google Reader was not just the ability to subscribe to RSS feeds (which many, many free programs can do), but the ability to sync your subscription and read/unread settings across a variety of devices. This software does not any syncing ability - in fact, it doesn't even have an iOS version, although it does oddly have a Nokia version. Advertising this as "not dependent on Google Reader" is kind of like advertising a refrigerator as "frost free" and trying to hide the fact that you achieved this by removing the freezer.

And Google Reader is going away. Nothing has yet emerged to replace it. Your point is?
