View Full Version : RSS Readers for iPhone/iPod Touch 2.0?

07-15-2008, 09:17 PM
I've been looking for a good RSS reader for my iPhone 3G since I got it. Presently, I'm going with Google Reader on Mobile Safari (since I use Google Reader on my Mac), which is just a bit clunky for my liking. The native options don't appear to fare much better; neither NetNewsWire, Byline, nor iRSS have anything resembling good reviews on the App Store. Has anyone tried them? Are they ready for prime time? Are there other solutions I'm missing?

I use NetNewsWire on my mac .. and now my iPhone. I love having a centralized database so when I get home I don't have to re-read all of the news that I read on my iPhone or on my work computer.

The author has commented on his personal blog that he has a ton of bug fixes for the iPhone NetNewsWire app, but Apple is slow at publishing his submitted updates. I'm guessing they have to do some testing on their end to make sure they aren't distributing anything buggy or full of security holes.
