This needs a bump.  

I should have the option of Save to Google, like Twitter or any of the other share buttons, so I don't have to manually open the story in the browser, Save it, close the browser, return to NewsBlur, and carry on.

Thanks.

Aren't there intents on Android? NewsBlur packages stories into a generic title/content/image/url package and other native apps can use that. iOS stole it from Android, so I know you should be able to do it. Does the Google Bookmarks service have a native app that can do this?

Correct.  The NewsBlur app knows essentially nothing about where it sends things.  Your installed apps determine what options pop up when you send a story.

I'm not familiar with GOOG's bookmarking service, but if it has an app, installing that should do the trick.

No, it's a different setup than Bookmarks. I'm talking about https://www.google.com/save/me
