What is it, if so?
Nnw screwed the pooch IMO. They left a buggy iPhone version and charged double for iPad. Their support sucks and their app does too for now.As I see it, you're with netnewswire or newsrack - I'm a desktop NNW junkie, but the reviews are a little iffy...
Bump this to the top - anyone?
How did you transfer your Safari RSS feeds over to Early Edition?The Early Edition is awesome, although it has a slow startup time when you have a lot of feeds. It doesn't yet support Google Reader, but I don't use that anyway since I use Safari's built in RSS on my Macs. This app is gorgeous though and in true iPad fashion.
Feedler is missing a few features that I prefer, like Oldest First and View Unread Only. If Feedler adds those, it'll be much nicer. Feedler is very slow to do a full sync for offline reading, but a partial sync is much faster.Anyone know how Newsrack compares to Feedler? Feedler is free and does support Google Reader sync.
Ended up getting Newsrack and deleted Feedler. Newsrack looks and performs better. Much happier with it.Feedler is missing a few features that I prefer, like Oldest First and View Unread Only.

Can't compare with Newsrack, but I prefer the Reader web clients over Feedler right now.
Is there anyway you can tag and bookmark a story, or even save it? What are the archiving options is what interests me.I bought sever news readers looking for the "perfect" one. The best I found is Early Edition. I like how it organizes the articles into a newspaper format. For some reason, it makes it easier for me to read.
To get the feeds in, I sent myself an email with all of my favorite feeds and the used copy/paste to add them to Early Edition. They said they are looking into adding a page scrubber so you can just type a URL to a site and it will list off the sites RSS feeds for you to choose from.
Update: I just got an update to Early Edition and the comments say they are adding sync with Google Reader soon.
I don't like the way google reader formats them, I want them to be laid out and arranged newspaper - like.I hope I don't pull the thread off-topic, but I'm an avid RSS user and I haven't been able to figure out why anyone would want a separate app when Google Reader mobile is so good. Am I missing something?
