    I found a great iPhone RSS app, powered by Google Reader. But I use for my RSS on my Mac. Is there a way to sync Mail and Google Reader's data? Maybe an AppleScript?

    No can do.

    But I'll tell you, I've tried a few Google Reader syncing apps on my iPhone and always come crawling back to the G Reader web app. It's fully functional, fast enough, free. I don't care about offline feed reading, since I'm 99.999% online.

    Sorry to be so late to this one but I'd love an app to sync this up! I love RSS in Mail but I'd like somewhere I could see my feeds when at a 'Public' computer! Please someone invent I'll buy it promise!:)

    Just Use The Google Reader Feed

    I found that my Google Reader account automatically sums all feeds into one big feed. I can easily add that to apple mail.

    In Safari, just look for the little RSS icon at the end of the url in the address bar when you're on the Home page of your Google Reader account. Click on that RSS button.

    Copy the resulting string and load it as a new feed into Apple Mail. Before you submit it change the prefix to the url from "feed://" to "http://" - without the quotes - and you'll be all set. You might even be able to single out the feeds and import them one by one if you want, I didn't care to try that.

    Yea, but to the best of my knowledge, it doesn't sync with google reader. That is, when you log onto reader from the web, for example, articles you read in will still be marked as unread in reader. Is that correct?
