Reeder for iPad, which syncs with your Google Reader account and pulls in all your RSS feeds in the blink of an eye, had been updated to version 1.2 and now has added support for posting to Facebook and Zootool. Once iOS 4.2 drops (soon please) Reeder will work in the background using the task completion process, allowing you to leave the app and do other things while the sync occurs in the background.

There are also the usual bug fixes and a few other minor updates such as less sensitive slider controls, larger tap areas and better handling of accounts with hundreds of subscriptions. If you use Google Reader and have an iPad, you must give it a try. The app is clearly laid out with simple menus and has an easy to read layout. The only downside is the app icon, it is a rather dull grey and white affair and does look a bit out of place in my dock.
