Mr. Reader is a powerful RSS app that is packed with tons of customization options and is rich in features. It's one of the best ways to go when it comes to keeping up with RSS feeds on your iPad.

What is it about?

Mr. Reader offers the best combination of features, presentation, ease of use, and customization. The interface is fairly standard, with feeds and folders presented in columns, but it can be customized with themes, mobilizers, gestures, and format. A recent update added URL scheme support to make Mr. Reader the premiere iPad app for sharing content found in RSS feeds. The fact that the presence of so many options doesn’t feel overwhelming is a testament to how well designed Mr. Reader is.
