I use NewsRob (free version) connected to Google Reader.

Namaste

To the times I'll never remember, with the friends I'll never forget.

I'm a NewsRob guy as well.

Well, you set up Google Reader with your preferred RSS Feeds as normal. Then on your phone, NewsRob is set to sync up every so often (whatever interval you desire). You can manually sync as well, which I often do after I finish going through a bunch of stuff. When a sync occurs, it'll get new articles and mark older ones as read.

Pretty straightforward stuff - and since it's free, you can check it out on your own.

I prefer NewsRob since I like having Google Reader & my RSS feeds available to me anywhere. I hit the Reader from my computers at home... workstation at work... and via my phone when on the road. Keeping sync all over is what makes it a win for me.

The only advantage of NewsRob vs going straight to reader.google.com, is that you do not need an active 'net connection for NewsRob, since your phone will presumably have synced up earlier. So if you're in the El or somewhere else with shit reception, you can still read without worry.

Otherwise yes, Google's mobile implementation of their Reader site is very good and definitely a viable solution for many.

Well, if I don't read my RSS feed for 24 hours during the week, which does happen on occasion, I can queue up 300+ items to sift through. So for my needs, I keep the limit jacked to the max - space consumption is minimal so why not? And I only keep unread articles. If I want to go back to something later, usually because I want to view it on my desktop, I star it.

Same here. It really depends on how many subscriptions you have and how much they put out. I think mine is limited at 500. They don't take up that much space and it goes to the SD card.

NewsRob changed the way I poop. LOL

Namaste

ok, I've been using NewsRob on a few forums, and like it mostly.

Is there a setting that shows who the post is from in the title.
I just see the originating forum and the message title.

The other thing is on longer messages, within the message, I don't see all the text,
it ends in .....

I looked around the menu's in Newsrob but didn't see anything (Non Pro version)

Thanks for the help.

Some RSS feeds don't send you everything - that's the decision of those who set the feed up.

And I don't use NewsRob to track forums at all, so really cannot help you on that topic I'm afraid.
