    I've read a few "top 10 lists" but nothing really stands out as something exciting i'd like to use.

    I currently utilize Google Reader, so something that works with that. Of course, i could always use their site.. but i digress.

    I used Google's Reader web app for over a year...until a couple of weeks ago, when I abandoned RSS entirely and switched to Twitter.

    I agree with Baschdi616. I think Reeder is the best RSS reader app out there. :)

    Does Reeder have a Comments view and replying to Comments? Does it allow notes?

    Most readers are missing the Comment View. :(

    I have been using FeeddlerRSS. It is a free app and works very well for what I use it for.

    I use both. For breaking news etc i use twitter (with list organized) but for other vlogs and aites i really care i use the Reeder RSS reader. Twitter seems a bit unorgaized and the fac i can't mark items as read is a bitflaw for me. I like the reeder approach.

    After trying out several different RSS reader apps, I finally found MobileRSS. It not only is very functional but it looks very slick as well and has a great interface for what I am looking for.

    Reeder is simply the best (for both iPad and iPhone). Look no further. Pair it with Instapaper for "Read it Later" functionality, it's great!

    I am sure I had posted before and said that I use Reeder. I got bored of it and now I have found a great app, named River of News. I like the way it displays articles, as it allows me to read much more information than most RSS readers allow.

    Reeder. I gave River of News a shot, but just didn't like it.

    Reeder maybe a bit overrated, but at the end of the day, it's just so darn fast and stable.

    I use MobileRSS the most; loading times aren't too bad, has pics in the feed roll, and the interface is solid. Reeder is great if you're looking for a quick, text-based experience, and FLUD is cool if you want something more visual. Those are the three I use.

    Another vote for River of News. Expanded articles with smooth scrolling that will mark as read as you go cant be beat.

    +1 Reeder. I first began using it on my iphone then when i got my ipad it was the first app i downloaded. Kinda sucks that it was not a universal app, but it is extremely polished and works without a hitch so I am happy to support a great developer. Once you get used to the unique gestures and workflow the entire app feel completely robust.

    Flipboard is a close second for me - The page animation is a treat and the app really makes reading facebook and other feeds a pleasure.

    It's interesting how River and Reeder are dominating. They are both fine apps, particularly River, but they are pretty traditional as far as layout goes. I'd at least check out Pulse or Fliboard. Two different, innovative approaches.
