    Hi,
    I have Reeder on the Mac and was wondering what the best RSS reader is on iOS. There are a couple of things I would like on it though:

    Must sync with Google Reader

    Good if had Readability support

    Push notifications for new stories

    Maybe customisable push notifications for only select feeds

    No ads


    I've tried Feeddler RSS and although it syncs with gReader it doesn't have any of the other features I'd like.
    Anyone know the best one? I know Reeder have an iOS app but I was wondering if that's good/there are better alternatives.

    Thanks!

    Reeder.

    Lifehacker voted best. My fav.

    Google sync. Readability. Dunno about push.

    Will look into that definitely then. Anyone else got suggestions other than Reeder?

    Does Reeder have push notifications?

    No.

    I have been using NewsRack (no push though).

    I have not tried it, but Simple RSS Push does iOS push notifications.

    You can also setup BoxCar to do this.

    Feed Push works for that. It doesn't for other functions you asked.
    Boxcar is a very good app but has a LOT of limits in RSS notifications.

    I agree with your pick, but Mr. Reader is for iPad only. (And it seems upcoming major update to Reeder for iPad may close the gap.)

    For iPhone, there are few flashier alternatives, but nothing that I've tried beats Reeder in terms of speed and stability.

    Ah, good point, I always thought it was universal. In that case I would say Flipboard or Reeder for iPhone. I liked the newer version of Reeder for iPhone when I used it on a co-worker's device, but not sure if I liked it enough to warranty the purchase over Flipboard.
