    Just wondering if there is a dedicated RSS reader for Blackberrys? Currently I use Opera Mini's RSS option. It is okay but I would really like a dedicated RSS reader to render the content and just show me the text. Unfortunetly Opera just takes you directly to the website and I don't want to scroll through all the HTML content. I don't even know if what i'm asking for excists.

    On another note, what do you guys read religiously? Right now i'm only subscribed to ESPN's Page 2 Bill Simmons and The Guardian. I'm looking to expand my reading list so I'm wonder what all the stackers are reading.

    I use Google Reader (wap not a program). But there are several programs you can install also. I have not tried any but here are 2 threads with several talked about:

    I'm with you on Bill Simmons, I'll have to check out The Guardian. I use FreeRange as my rss reader, available for free download at mobile.blackberry.com via via your device.

    You may want to have a look at Viigo, it used to be Newsclip, no idea why they changed but its a nice reader and for the timebeing appears to be FREE. http://www.virtualreach.com/

    Yea, Viigo is a good reader. It may suck up some memory though. My pearl still runs like a champ though.

    I'm a big fan of google's reader site but for the life of me can't get it to work on my phone. Do you have any tips? When I go to the site (www.google.com/reader/m) I get an extremely long page of nothing.
