comment iPhone Google Reader client with updating home-screen badge for unread item count?
I would also add that this update doesn't need to happen constantly. Once per day would actually be enough for me.

I understand what you're saying, but a) The payload is negligible b) I, as a user, would be willing to pay for this service c) I don't mind my Google auth token being stored on a developer's server (provided they're an established operation)
