    Currently I use Google Reader to manage all the RSS feeds I read. It has a mobile web interface which I use sometimes, but it's the best designed interface. I'm not really looking to replace Google Reader at this point, although I'd love it if they came out with a dedicated WM app for it. What I thought I might do is install an RSS reader and use that just to read my starred feed. I have so many articles I see, most of the time I'm just going through and starring the ones I want to get back to later to read, share, etc. I thought having an easier way to get through some of the reading would be to install a nice rss reader that only looked at this one feed.

    Anyway, any recommendations for a good reader?

    i personally like egress. While there are some downsides to it (sometimes I think it's this program that wrote extra 'storage card' folders to my phone when trying to auto download feeds) the upsides are way better than other RSS readers. I really really like the today screen scrolling headlines from it!

    Personally, I like Google Reader's web interface; however, I'm rarely anywhere without data, so I could see why someone would like to store their feeds.

    Viigo - the default setup works, but for those of us who want to add feeds, the search feature is inadequate when compared to QuickNews. Another that I am using is Newsbreak. Viigo is free so I will probably go there.

    I asked if StandAlone planned to introduce a WinSlow release of QuickNews and was told no.

    Thanks guys, these are all on my to do list to install. Man, I have a ton of software to try out, and zero time to do it! I finally installed my first launcher and really like it - SPB Mobile Shell. While I was perusing their website, I came across another product, Spb Insight:

    http://www.spbsoftwarehouse.com/products/insight/?en

    Anyone try this out? Does it work well? It would be great if some site (WM-Experts or a similar site) did some kind of comparison of all the RSS readers out there for Windows Mobile...

    I like Newsgator (WM) and it's sibling FeederReader for the PC. Keeps my PC and PPC in sync for all of my feeds. Quite handy so that I don't need to reread what I've already read. They're free, too.

    Im am not a power RSS user but I really like pRSS reader.

    It has a nice small today plugin and seems to have an extensive list of options.

    I gave up on dedicated WM RSS readers for a few reasons:

    1) I used QuickNews on my 700p long ago because it would download detailed feed content and images. Most WM apps don't. This is understandable since many of us have a ton of feeds, but it means you need a connection to get active content.

    2) PC synchronization. When I check feeds on a PC, it doesn't automatically mark as read items I've looked at on the Treo.

    My solution is to use OperaMini with m.bloglines.com. I can check off feeds on either the Treo or PC and it remembers which articles are marked read.

    Instead of connecting once per article as some readers require, I need only connect once per feed or per category to get all the articles and images.

    gotta get Newsbreak - so awesome. You can get a trial version OTA at http://iliumsoft.com - great Today screen plugin & everything.

    I tried viigo & while yes they do have some cool stuff I much prefer the way Newsbreak uses the 5-way for channel navigation. I can very quickly scroll through the channels (I have about 30 I use) veru quickly. So awesome.

    I like Google Reader on the pc because it has a built in podcast streamer. Is there a WM RSS reader that can initiate the streaming of mp3 podcasts?

    I also like NewsBreak; however, my today screen is cluttered as it is Hence Viigo and QuickNews via Style Tap.

    Well, I've been trying all of these out and so far Newsbreak seems to be the winner. The others either didn't recognize my Google Starred Items feed, had connection issues of one kind or another. Some wouldn't even let me paste the url in, I had to type it by hand!

    I'm still unsure whether I'll even use a newsreader. I may instead decide to load the starred items "page" into PIE and read through there. I suppose I could do something similar in the mobile version of Google Reader, but I don't particularly like the interface and it doesn't show pictures. I'm wondering for those out there who have played with alternative browsers like Skyfire, Opera, Netfront, etc., will those let you view Google Reader in the same way that you do on a PC? (I mean with all the ajaxy goodness?) If the mobile Google Reader were just a little more capable and had more of the regular GR functionality, I wouldn't mind using it, but it just doesn't...

    Google Reader mobile is awful. Bloglines mobile is great- it's made for smartphones, not any phone, so it has full text and images.

    Just tried Newsbreak. Nice interface but it does not allow me to stream podcasts the way Kinoma does.
