    Hi,

    I am looking for a feed reading app and wonder which is best?

    They both have good ratings in BlackBerry World.

    Thank You.

    Personal preference - gNewsReader. Not only do I find it easier to use, but the developer is extremely proactive, and takes user suggestions, implements as many as he can. Take a look in this thread to see the activity! http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...rogram-767030/

    Haven't used Feedminder, but gNewsReader works with Feedly, which is my now replacement for Google Reader(R.I.P).

    It's simple, and clean.

    They're really different products. FeedMinder is a stand-alone RSS aggregator (with no cloud sync/integration at the moment); gNewsReader is a Feedly/NewsBlur client. As far as the RSS experience goes, the only thing FeedMinder has on gNewsReader is an inline preview of article text [teaser text]. Otherwise, I prefer the gNewsReader UI. FeedMinder also has a built-in Twitter client, but it's fairly bare-bones. There's no way to open an individual tweet to view conversations; all you get is the timeline view..
    Also, as noted earlier, the gNewsReader developer has been visibly active in, well, developing his project, and I think that augurs well for its future as a mature, polished app.

    For the record, gNewsReader can also be used as a stand-alone RSS reader. Add individual feeds without syncing to a cloud-based source such as Feedly.

    I might be mistaken, but as far as I know gNewsReader is still dependent on Feedly (or NewsBlur) to provide the RSS aggregation, whereas FeedMinder's data is saved locally.

    Thank you for the advice I was angling towards gNewsReader but was unsure about its ability to also read rss.

    "NOTE: Feedly/NewsBlur account is needed to operate this application. NewsBlur support is at BETA status and some features may be lacking compared to Feedly backend."

    If you're OK with an Android app (and with ads), I would personally recommend gReader (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...greader.reader). It's a little more polished than gNewsReader at this point, it supports offline caching, and it now doubles as a stand-alone RSS reader.

    If you're all about the native solution, though, I would register for Feedly if you haven't already because I think gNewsReader is that much better than FeedMinder right now.

    My mistake. I misunderstood the "add feed" option in the overflow menu. Apparently it adds new feeds to your Feedly or NewsBlur account from on-device. I was wrong, but found a feature I was unaware of...

    I personally like FeedMinder better. Alerts in the hub, and another form of twitter if you don't like using native twitter app
