    I've tried just about all of them and keep coming back to MobileRSS...the paid/pro version. Full featured, clean and reliable. I like that it lets me add/delete subscriptions.

    Just my $0.02.

    I really liked MobileRSS also, very similar feature set as Reeder. I just found Reeder much faster than MobileRSS, especially over 3G.

    Afraid I have to respectfully disagree. I haven't used Reeder on iPhone...only for iPad...but I don't think it loads images until you click on a feed. MobileRSS loads an image if there is one available...which I like. Also, from what I can tell you can't subscribe to feeds in Reeder which you can do in MobileRSS.

    You're obviously welcome to your opinion.

    Reeder is the best I tried Byline but didn't like it. Reeder is worth the couple of bucks.

    Don't have an iPad, but the iPhone version of Reeder can be configured to not DL any images when on 3G and just updating feeds. It will then DL the image if you select an article. Then on wi-fi it automatically pulls in the images when updated the feeds. This makes feed updates on 3G very fast.
