    Alright, I'm stumped. I used to use a site to email me all my rss feeds. Every 30/60 minutes it would poll my feeds and it would email me any updates. Well, I just stopped getting them one day, so I figured I would find an app to do this for me that I could refresh as needed.
    I started with smartRSS, which I really like, except I have to hand type in my feeds, which is a bit too much! So now I'm looking at FEEDS, which I guess is one of the only google reader apps out there, but I can't put my username in because I have a period in it and FEEDS only has options for letters. So I have no idea how to get around that.
    I was thinking of using newsgator online, but would rather use an app. Anyone have any other suggestions for RSS apps out there besides the two I just mentioned.

    I just need one I can hopefully put in a username/password and have access to all my feeds as easy as that.

    thanks!

    Vienna is a nice app, with plenty of features. Open Source too. :cool:

    for the iPhone. Sorry, assumed since it was in this section of the forum it was obvious. Though I think I might give it a try for my powermac anyways :)

    Oh man, I'm dumb! :D Sorry! I didn't notice. Guess it's time for me to go to bed. . (half 4 in the morning here :/)

    Hope you get some better recommendations! *blushes*

    I'll play with reader.google.com for a little bit. Really want to pick up an app, I really liked the way smartRSS feels and it's quick, but dang, can't type in a million feeds.

    thanks

    I just started using google reader. Is it just me, or is it a tad slow to pick up new stories? There were stories posted to macrumors.com this morning that took a good while to show up on the reader, even when hitting refresh.

    I've noticed it's a little slow as well. Have you played with the new beta version yet? Was using it, but now all of a sudden can't scroll. I touch the screen to scroll down and I hit links, frustrating, especially since it's loads better than the regular version most people see...

    You know I'm not sure if I'm using the beta or not. How can I tell?
