    Is it possible to add a widget and add say the dhd section on here, the dhd section of xda and the honey3D sites RSS?

    Thanks in advanced!

    lol its a shame really, but even if they did, it would be annoying if you seen a post that you wantes to reply to and would have to go to the forum anyway lol

    Just get the Phandroid app for Android Forums, and XDA app for XDA, both free on the market

    Polls only appear to be visible on the internal staff/premium members beta, not on the market version of the app.

    You can subscribe to forums here, meaning you'd get an email everytime something new was posted, would that help?

    Would the emails only come if it was a thread I was subscribed to or had commented on? And how much is the premium beta?

    I presume it would be every post in the forum, I only subscribe to threads I comment in and have other forums set as my favourite.

    Premium is $5 a month (about £3.15) or $20 for 6 months.

    Every thread can have a different option for emails (no email, per post, weekly or monthly), although you can set a default option. Right now your default will be no email. I don't think it would update when someone voted in a poll however.

    gReader seems the best, I'm using it now for XDA Portal feeds.

    There is a free version and a pro version for around £3.50. Widgets only work in the pro version but I prefer the notifications. In the free version you can get notifications everytime there is a new post on the feed, and you can choose how often it checks.

    It syncs with your Google account so if you follow a feed on your computer using your Google account, it will automatically sync with your phone.

    It is the best RSS feed reader on the market imo
