    Default BlackBerry News App?

    Does anyone have an app similar to the BlackBerry News app that was on OS7 and the PlayBook? I can't find a good RSS reader and I always enjoyed the simplicity of the BB news app. Also, does anyone have the bar file of the news app from the PlayBook and tried it on the Z10?

    I would also love to have blackberry news. Social feeds would be nicer, though.

    Yeah, I need a decent RSS reader. I used Social Feeds all the time for RSS, it was great, but now I'm in an RSS wasteland. Most of the RSS apps on BBW are weak, or buggy slow Android ports. NO MI GUSTA. :P

    I was able to load version 1.1.0.1 of the blackberry news app from the PlayBook but all the text was too small. We need to try 1.2.0.6 as that has the portrait support.

    I can't find the 1.2.0.6 bar file anywhere. If someone get a hold of it and post the bar it would be greatly appreciated.

    I've tried many BB10 RSS readers, none of them are very good.

    The 2 I have on my Z10 right now are News Spot and RSS Savvy, and they both have serious limitations.

    I wish there was something like the free RSS Demon app that I use on Android. I would gladly pay for a native version of that on BB10.
