    Does anyone know if there is an offline browser for Android? I would expect Avantgo to come out with something soon ... but for us subway dwellers, it's very much needed.

    Anyone ... anyone?

    Aside from the fact that Avantgo sucks and I would never use it in its current form, I'd love to see something like this. Even just an offline RSS or Google Reader app would be great for the time being.

    I hope I am correct but there is a rss feed reader in the market application. I have used it but dont' have the phone by me to tell you the name.

    Hope this is what you are looking for.

    Yeah, I saw that. I'm actually hoping for something that works with Google Reader so I don't have to see the same crap over and over again - once I read something, or mark it as read, I don't wanna see it again.

    using bluerss now. still looking for something a bit more elegant. i hate the startupscreen that you cant skip but apart from that it works.

    also... i dont think theres syncing to google reader. i just put the ones i read the most in it.

    Don't know if this will work in the US, but I use an unofficial BBC News app which will download everything whilst I've got mobile signal and then let me read it while I don't.

    You don't get anything fancy, just text based news, but since its BBC News, its pretty good and reliable. You won't get anything specific though for the US. Just US news in general rather than NYC news, or Brooklyn news, for example. But if something big is going on it should capture it for you.
