    Is there a full-featured RSS Reader for the Pre. I am using Google Reader ... but it is not optimized for Pre. I'd like to try an RSS reader written and running as an application for Pre.

    Palm has an unfinished sample one from the webOS book that someone here has compiled into an IPK if you search the forums, or there's TechTrayPre, which is still pretty beta as well.

    I have seen the discussion in the forums of the unfinished example from Palm ... but I did not know how to implement it. Thanks for pointing me to TechTrayPre which I had seen... but did not recognize as an RSS reader. I will download taht and hope it matures briskly

    Does this one work well? I am looking for a good RSS reader too.

    Those were from some time ago. I use Scoop, which syncs nicely with Google Reader and provides a quick, easy-to-use interface. It doesn't sync and store feed locally, but I've found it to be very useful.

    There are some others in the App Catalog. Can't remember them at the moment, but maybe someone else can chime in with some additional suggestions.

    Scoop and Feeds I believe are still the best RSS readers that utilize Google Reader.

    If you aren't dead-set on Google Reader, take a look at NewsRoom.

    i remember on my windows phone i had skyfire, which had rss feeds built into it, is there a program that operates that way, when you click on the article and it opens up within the program not launching the web browser.

    What I like about syncing with Google Reader is that I can use FeedDemon on my PCs and remain in sync across all of my feeds and all of my systems.

    I love NewsRoom, too.... but why can't they integrate with Google Reader??

    Scoop! Fastest, simplest, cleanest, and works with Google Reader. Feeds Free is okay, especially since it's similarly featured for free (but Scoop is only a buck), however, it was not as fast or nice as scoop, plus I don't like how you mark items as read.

    Newsroom pretty handily.

    Agreed. Newsroom is pretty much the best across all platforms. I've had so much trouble adding custom feeds to other RSS readers, but this one is a breeze. And it doesn't bog down your system when updating like others do.

    Another vote for NewsRoom ... hands down the best App for the Pre. It's interface is an extension of WebOS, with feeds and articles acting like cards

    NewsRoom is the best. Has all the features one could want and more.

    +1 for newsroom, my most used app by far...

    I love Newsroom. I had the paid version of Feeds and switched over once I realized how slick the UI for Newsroom is. My only gripe with it is that there's currently no tap-to-view or zoom feature for images in news feeds which makes it tough to browse image-based feeds like PeopleOfWalmart or LOLCats.

    With other RSS readers, I am forced to open a web brower to complete a story. It's inherently going to open the non-mobile version of said site, so it's difficult to read.

    How does News Room treat truncated articles like this?
  19. #19  
    I've never had any problems with Scoop and I hear Newsroom is much the same way. However, if some sites, such as Precentral often does, force you to visit the website, there's nothing you can do about it.

    What I mean is Precentral regularly truncates its front page articles (to save space) and includes a cut link you have to jump past to see the rest, which forces you to visit the site.

    I just downloaded NewsRoom based on the recommendations on this thread and WOW, definitely worth it!
