For some, a smartphone isn’t complete without a decent RSS reader – and yes, people still use RSS.
Most RSS Readers for iOS are slow to sync with Google Reader or are really buggy! These are my top three picks for RSS readers that are changing the mobile RSS landscape – and sync quickly with Google Reader.
Reeder carries on the visual simplicity of the iPhone experience and brings the best of Google Reader’s features in play such as share, note, star, and mark for later. After a recent update, the app now supports sharing to InstaPaper, ReaderItLater, Email, and Delicious. Not to mention synchronization with Google Reader feeds is blazing fast! Reeder was able to handle heavy media content without any problems. It even has the most nifty and quick web app guide in the help section. Reeder is well worth your $1.99 change from coffee.
From the team behind Twitbird Twitter client for the iphone, comes MobileRss, an iPhone Google Reader client that packs an impressive punch! MobileRss features some premium features for the steal price tag of $3.99. There’s also a free Ad-Supported version if you’d like to try before you buy.
The Newsie Google Reader client is a beautiful mobile RSS reader for the iPhone. With well designed features reminiscent of of the experience with Tweetie, Newsie focuses on making it easy for you to filter your news in a digestible format. Starring items for later reading automatically triggers the app to stored the article offline. Newsie also supports recovery of where you were last reading.
The app finishes off with an time-saving toolbar to switch between shared items, starred items, notes, and your feeds. It helps to ensure you get back to those items you starred for later.
