I used to be happy with WidSets…
Now, using an iPhone, I have a bigger screen, Wi-Fi conectivity, a nice usability due to the multitouch screen and many other advantages of the Apple’s blockbuster. But I can’t read my feeds when I am not near from a hotspot. Ironically, I can download audio and video podcasts from iTunes, synchronize my device and listen/see them later. Why can’t I do the same with my RSS feeds?
There are many iPhone webapps to read RSS (even Netvibes has an iPhone specific version), but no one works offline. Unfortunately, neither WidSets will be the savior because it’s not compatible with iPhone (requires Java MIDP 2.0).
I’ve been looking for an iPhone RSS Reader that works offline. That’s my message:
- If you know one, please let me know, leaving a comment; I will really appreciate it.
- If you are a iPhone developer, that’s a good idea of a new application;
- If you are from WidSets development team, it’s time to code a new version compatible to iPhone;
- If you are from iTunes development team, feeds (as well as podcasts) downloading an synchronization would be really good feature.
In any case, I will really appreciate it.
