    What's everybody using for an RSS app? I'm using NetaShare. I really like it, but it's lacking a home screen widget - I sorta wrote about it as part of my top 5 favorites, but I'm wondering if there might be something better that allows you to download and store RSS content on your phone AND has a homescreen widget.

    What does everybody else use?

    I'm using NewsRoom, really like it. Retrieves whole articles and backs up to SD Card for offline reading. Throws up a notification in the notification bar when new content available. Excellent UI.

    No Google Reader syncing yet though, so may be a turn off for dedicated Google Reader users.

    If you're into rss feeds I highly reccomend the motoblur ui. I have 4 dedicated widgets for different rss feeds and one click takes you dirctly to the source website. Its quick and you can subscribe to different topics. I'm a huge fan!

    NewsRoom allows for individual 1x1 sized widgets that go direct to each feed also, but just seems a waste of space given the notifications bar alert for new material.

    Another vote for newsroom, there's a free trial version but the full version is definitely worth buying.

    PureRSS isn't too bad either.

    Just check out newsroom, definitely agree that a paid version would be the way to go..

    Currently using the News app which came preloaded on the Desire, it seems OK and has a homescreen widget too.

    Newsroom sounds like a nice alternative though, with its offline reading facility.

    I've tried most of the ones available. I like Greed the most, that is until the recent update that introduced slower loading and very annoying ads.

    I REALLY like Newsroom, but not having Reader sync is a dealbreaker for me. I would definitely be willing to buy a full version of Newsroom if it had Reader sync.

    For now, I'm sticking with the older version of Greed before the developer screwed it up. Lucky for me I had a backup of it so I reverted back to it.

    I use FeedR Beta. I haven't tried any other RSS app, but I didn't want to after trying this out. Lets me search for feeds using keywords, caches images automatically (setting), limits cache size etc. Works for me.
