    Is there any custom RSS feed applications out there where i can add say Sky News feed, BBC news feed and apple hot news feed?

    I dont want one with loads of crap news feeds on it though.

    Do you have a gmail account? I setup my feeds in gmail and than use the free Reeder application on iPhone, iPad and Mac:

    Yes, i do.

    All i literally want is, BBC news, Sky news and Apple Hot news, all in one application in my dock.

    Can that application do that?

    Yes. I use Reeder, and it really is a fantastic program. At the moment it is in Beta, and so is free. If it follows the iPhone and iPad app however, when it comes out of the beta stage, it will cost a few dollars, but I will gladly pay that when the time comes.

    EDIT TO ADD: Here is a link to the Reeder for Mac beta, as the website above does not have it.

    Add the RSS feeds you want to your Google Reader account (Included in all Google accounts) and then set Reeder to sync with your Google account.

    I am using something called Gruml on my Macbook Pro and the free MobileRSS on my iphone. Both sync with my google reader account.
    Gruml is a little flakey, but not too bad. Sometimes its automatic syncing needs a little nudge, but I like it a lot otherwise. Nice and simple.
    The free version of MobileRSS has one ad at the top of the screen, but that's OK with me. If it bothered me, then a few bucks for a nice app wouldn't be a problem.

    I used to use Gruml, but switched to Reeder, and haven't looked back. You should definitely try it out! :)

    The only thing Gruml has over Reeder is Growl integration.

    London, United Kingdom
    Vienna is a standalone Mac application (no online integration, just how I like it!) and is open source.

    It may come with some standard feeds, but they're easily deleted such that you can have only the specific feeds you're after.

    News Anchor

    If you like RSS feeds but don't like reading, you might like News Anchor. News Anchor makes hands-free RSS "reading" comes true by reading the news for you in a mock TV broadcast.

    Disclosure: I'm the developer of News Anchor.
