    I've been looking around for a good app to read RSS feeds with, and am looking for suggestions. Which of the many RSS feed apps do you prefer?

    For those of you that came from the BlackBerry platform, does anyone familiar with Viigo know of a similar app in design?

    If you're serious about your feeds or have a lot to read daily, it's Reeder without a doubt.

    I agree with Reeder. I've tried many, and think Reeder is the best.

    Reeder is by far the best app for the iPhone and iPad.

    Reeder by far. Much faster than any other RSS app, and I have tried all the popular ones.

    After all the suggestions for Reeder, I decided to give it a try and really like it. Thanks!

    Does anyone know if it's possible to add an RSS feed from within reeder though? As opposed to have to do it through the google reader website?

    You can't add feeds from within in Reeder.. But it is still the best rss reader by a longshot.

    The iPad version has been a bit buggy lately for me, but Reeder is still my favorite newsreader, by far. The iPhone version's great.

    Ah, thanks, that makes staying with NewsRack easier. :)
    NewsRack can add feeds from with the app, and that was actually one of the main reasons for me to choose it.

    Yes, Reeder certainly lacks in features but when it comes to just Feed reading, it is unbeatable.

    Second that for the iPhone but I keep NewsRack because it has the ability to search. Reeder hands down for the iPad. MobileRSS has really surprised me with the updates. I took it off my phone for a few months and recently gave it another shot. Very nice.

    Agree, that was shocking the way they ripped off Reeder, I know you can't get away with some of these apps looking fairly similar to each other but that was the most blatant copying of an interface I've ever seen.

    Totally boycott their apps, they lost a lot of respect in the community.

    What's better about Reeder compared to mobile rss pro?

    I have used both and over a 3G connection Reeder is much faster.
