Just for clarification, with your application, is there no need to have an account with something like the former Google Reader? That is, RSS feeds can simply be entered into the app and don't require users to register for some other online reader to have the app work, e.g., Feeddler RSS Reader on iOS. If so, then that is phenomenal.The Z10 will be my last BB phone; switching platforms.
Yes,you are right you don't need any online accounts. It also provides some unique features like creating rss feed using your search criteria, but again no online account necessary.
Beside that it supports offline mode, custom notifications, background updates and more

Hi z10developer... I downloaded your app even before I saw this post. Some quick observations:
- I have difficulty reading the rss summaries due to the grey text on white background (using Q10)
- When expanding a summary, it moves, so if you want to read it by tapping on it, it is somewhat inconvenient. The text should expand downward, not upward.
- The formatting of full articles could use some work - when I have trouble, I do open in the web browser, which is a good feature. It would be nice to be able to adjust font size here.
But overall it is a good effort - there is no ideal rss app for me yet for bb10, so I am grateful to add another contender.
Appreciate your feedback. Update for q10 is already submitted and just waiting for BlackBerry World approval. This update fixes q10 look and feel issues of the app: scrolling issues, presentation (bright theme is used for q10 so it will look like on z10).
Text rendering, font size and some other features are included in next release which will be rolled out this weekend, but it will take some time for BlackBerry to approve it.
I initially developed this app for myself as I really addicted to news, and I still have have a lot of features in my mind

Is there a trick to adding RSS feeds? Or perhaps, I am being clueless, but when I go to add a new RSS feed, all I see is a blank screen, i.e., the feeds don't appear. For example, I am trying to add the following feed:
American Psychological Association News Feed
American Psychological Association Recent Press Releases
Harm Reduction Journal
Harm Reduction Journal - Latest Articles
And just a blank screen appears once I press the add button. For reference, I am on the most newest build of the app - I just updated it now. And using a Z-10, Rogers, with the latest official OS - not a leaked version.The Z10 will be my last BB phone; switching platforms.
I've verified links you provided. It doesn't work for me as well... Majority of feeds from news sites work fine.. in example http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/scienc...ain/psychology
But feeds from www.apa.org cause some issues.... I've already submitted another release which fixes those issues, so after BlackBerry World approval you will get an update that enables your feeds.
I'm really sorry for that. it is impossible to test application under all circumstances... but anyway if you can't wait for update I can reimburse money spent

My end goal is create the best RSS reader for BlackBerry 10
BlackBerry 10 platform is a great one, I'm looking forward for OS 10.2

Currently you need to add http:// in front of feed url, but in release which fixes issues with your feed I would add it automatically if prefix is not present.
Appreciate your patience!
