    i use berryreader..works great just like on the 9700 - although i wish i could tap a feed and have it open instead of having to press the trackpad. hopefully they'll update that.
    I prefer it over the built in rss reader and it syncs with your google reader account.

    The mobile version of Google Reader works great for me.

    I currently prefer it over the Social Feeds/RSS feeds app because you can't specify how many stories to keep nor how long to keep them...and you can't delete them either. After a few days I had hundreds of RSS feeds on my device and it was slowing things down. I uninstalled Social Feeds and will try it again when RIM updates it.

    Search this forum for thread titles with RSS and/or Social Feeds and you'll see a lot of discussion about it.

    I tried the RSS feed that came with the Torch and like others immediately disabled. I am using Google RSS reader for the moment. Better than what came with the Torch, but still not 100% satisfying for me. Google allows you to choose several different catagories, however doesn't allow you to choose feeds under those categories...all feeds or nothing.
    I WANT MY VIIGO BACK. It is the only complaint I have about the Torch (OS version)

    I use Viigo as my RSS reader. If you download Viigo for Storm 2 it works just fine. I've had it on my Torch for over a week now.

    dlu1999: thanks for the advice on that. I'm returning to Viigo too. Don't like the Social Feed app on my Torch. Very slow.

    From my understanding of this thread, the built in rss reader on the torch is crappy and a good alternative is the google reader (which i have on my desktop) and viigo.

    berryreader kills viigo or google reader mobile... i used to be a faithful user of viigo but since berryreader came out i've never gone back.

    berryreader combined with google reader is the best rss experience IMO

    Quick question...are you guys disabling the Social Feeds or deleting right off the phone?

    I'm surprised at all the hate for Social Feeds. I love the application and I used to be a heavy Viigo user. I have it marked as a favorite and use it several times a day. I think it's very elegant and works very well. Admittedly, I only subscribe to four different feeds. If I had dozens of feeds it is possible that I would miss Viigo.

    I have removed social feeds from the device. I see no point in having it installed if I'm not going to use it.

    The social feeds part of it is worthless for me. I don't tweet, I rarely post FB status updates, etc.

    The RSS part is nice but I hate having hundreds of RSS stories on my device with no way to delete them and no way to limit how many of them are there. If only I could do that I'd surely use it instead of using the mobile web version of Google Reader, which is actually decent enough.
