A selection of best the best universal apps for RSS feed reading. Most of these are free.
RSS feed is an excellent way to organize your readings. If you don’t know about RSS, it is abbreviation of Really Simple Syndication. This is basically a web feed. What happens is that when your favorite website publishes a new article, you get that article right in your RSS reader. You don’t have to open that website to check the article. If you check 10-20 websites regularly, they might be related to news, sports, profession or anything, all of their latest articles and posts would come directly to your RSS reader and you won’t have to open them again and again.
These RSS feed reader apps bring this technology to your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Millions of people around the world use RSS reader apps. If you haven’t used it before, I suggest you must do it at least once. They are very productive.
