    I have lots of interests and thus subscribe to many RSS feeds, Twitter feeds, BBM Channels, web links, forums, etc.

    I'm finding it annoying however. Not only is it inconvenient to go through all the different apps but the delivery presentation is often not ideal.

    Wish there was an app that could bring it all together in a nice scrolling, quick to go through and quick to read format. Sort of like a Hub but for the various feeds out there.

    A bonus feature would be for this Hub Feed to have the ability to read the blurbs to you while driving.

    Rss savvy is a free app in BBW for Rss and blog feeds. They also have a paid version to integrate your twitter into the app too.. it's one my favs so far.

    Also it has a hub like feature

    Wowza.

    Most here mentioned twitter.

    I use facebook mostly. But maybe if you guys push I would make an account on twitter.

    And using a native major app again would be also good.

    Lol.

    Just made a Twitter account because of this thread and will test it out.

    Would be cool if you fine gentlemen would post to what news you subscribed.

    Mines are Bloomberg, Entrepreneur, TechCrunch and INC. So far.

    I love the UI.

    On a sidenote. With massive informations we see at rss, twitter, facebook etc I wish we could have this app you had at the Bold 9900. I forgot the name.

    You had all the news feed in one stream.

    Also a fabulous app from BlackBerry pulled off and never seen again.

    Yes sir.

    Social Feeds. Now more important than ever. It was a great app to handle all these news.

    But I check up Twitter. I already have a follower. Lol

    I also use Rss savvy on daily basis, it's an awesome app, very reliable and have no complaints about it whatsoever. If you want twitter though u'd have to go for the paid one but start with the free you won't regret it.

    Stock Twitter app is free. Blaq and Twittly are alternative native Twitter clients that cost money.

    Sorry I meant if they want to add twitter feeds as well as Rss feeds then they would have to buy feedminder which is the paid version of the free Rss savvy

    This! Make it free with Opt-In Marketing (they don't scour your phone and all its apps for info about you, you volunteer the basic info and interests) then you can have all your social media, news and whatever else in one place. Since ads are inevitable the opt-in program would allow a much better user experience as you would discover more, and only be exposed to those things that actually interest you, not just your demographic or goofy friends.

    I guess I'm an ***** when it comes to twitter. I know people love it but I just don't think I get it or maybe I'm not using it properly.

    There is a BlackBerry 10 app I've been eyeing called FeedMinder that is a combination RSS and Twitter reader. It has hub integration. Might be worth taking a look at.

    As far as twitter apps go, the situation is not great. The "native" client has a super obnoxious bug in lists where when you get to the top it refreshes with the same damn tweets you've been reading. Blaq, etc. have their own obnoxious bugs with lists too where they either don't refresh or when they do they tear you to the top rather than letting you continue reading. Very sad because Twitter is a well understood problem in my opinion.
