    So whats the best RSS Viewer for iPhone? Preferably something that can play videos so I can save some space off large video podcasts being stored locally.

    EDIT: Thinking about the 0.99 cents Feeds application which has pretty good reviews. I wish I could find out if it supports video though.

    It does [support videos] and it definitely seems to be the best thus far.

    i bought the other Feeds (by Tuomas Artman, since 2 apps are called Feeds) and it's all i ask for a feed reader : simple, clean and easy.
    Some things i'd find useful are missing (like a mark all read button, or the ability to make folders of feeds).
    I considered Netnewswire for a while, but it's very slow (and i don't know what newsgator do with all the data gathered from the users)

    The "Feeds" by Mike Desaro (Prime 31 Web design) is the one I was referring to that most people seem to favor. It too is simple and clean and can "Mark All Read" (and is less expensive!)

    Do any of these have an internal browser? I hate opening safari to read an article, then close safari, reopen the rss reader, and repeat.

    This one got bad reviews on the french app store, so i picked the other one hoping these features will soon be implemented (since choices are not great for RSS readers : i had bad experience with iRSS when my iPod was jailbroken, Byline uses a google reader account, sebNews got lots of bad reviews, RSSstore does not allow to add the feeds i want)...
    Still waiting for a Newsfire for my iPod, actually

    Feeds (by Tuomas Artman) has one : when you select an article, you'v got a Summary and an Original page tab

    just curious, why would someone want an app store rss feeder over google reader? I understand byline's offline read benefit, but am having difficulties seeing the benefits over google reader. Thanks!

    I still use my web app... m.newsgator.com/iPhone
    This has been my reader since web apps came to the phone. News Gator is a common selection on RSS sites and I just aint payin for one that I can use anywhere.

    Just my .03 cents worth
