Google Reader 401 Error if 2-step verification is set up

Bug Description

Since I activated 2-step verification in my Google Account, CloudSN gets a 401 Error (Unauthorized) when it checks Google Reader. I also use GMail with the same application specific password but it does well. I even created an own password for the Google Reader checker plugin, but there is no other result.

I have the same problem. I activated 2-step verification; Gmail checking works fine in CloudSN, but Google Reader displays 401 Unauthorized notifications.

Running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick x86_64

Changed in cloudsn:
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → High

Google has changed some apis and I have adapted cloudsn to use it. Now the 1 step authentication is working again but we will not support the two steps verification by the moment (Google is developing a new api to support it)

Now with 1 step work correctly.

I also am using 1-step authentication on all Google services, and the Google Reader setup does not work, 401 Unauthorized. I'm running Maverick 64-bit.

I just realized I'm running an old version, 0.8.6. I manually downloaded and installed 0.8.12 (which says it's for Oneiric, but seems to function), and I no longer get the 401 error.
