Mobile Phones, smartphones, pocket PCs and oder mobile devices have been around for a while but using them to connect to the Internet is a trend that manifested itself in the last years. Apple's iPhone is one prominent example of a phone that offers many functions that require an Internet connection.
One of the popular reasons to connect to the Internet is to catch up on the latest news. This can be done by browsing to websites and reading the news there or by installing an RSS News Feed reader and use its interface to read the news. The advantage of the latter method is the concentration of news in one application, the notifications of new messages and reduced bandwidth costs.
The iRSS mobile phone RSS News Feeds reader is just one application that can be used to read rss news feeds on a mobile device. One advantage of it is the compatibility with lots of different devices like smartphones, mobile phones and PDAs.
The news reader can store up to five feed groups and one hundred RSS News Feeds which should be sufficient for mobile usage. It supports rss, xml, atom and rdf feeds and is compatible with RSS 0.91, 1.0 and 2.0 feeds. It also comes packed with a few popular feeds like Yahoo Technology News or Youtube Recently Added Video News.
Update: You can install the latest version of the iRSS Reader app for your mobile phone on the official website. The service is only compatible with Java/Wap based phones. Keep that in mind before you head over to install it.
The application is limited to 100 RSS feeds that can be added to five groups in the program interface. The app is still free but requires a registration before it can be used. We suggest you read through the installation guide and faq first before you install the app on your mobile phone.
