NewsRoom is an RSS Beauty and Beast

I recently learned of a new RSS reader for Android called NewsRoom.  Since I rarely rely on bookmarked websites anymore, I like to have content readily available via RSS.  While there have been a handful of great RSS apps released already, I decided to take a look anyhow.  I was pleasantly surprised by not only how fully featured the app was, but how great it looked at the same time.

If you’re in the market for a nice RSS reader, I definitely suggest checking out NewsRoom.  Among its features are background updating and offline access.  I am always running into dead spots where I work so it’s been very handy to know that if and when my connection returns, I don’t have to mess with anything.  Bonus points were awarded because AndroidGuys was listed as a featured feeds with a custom icons. Widgets are handled great; They can be configured so each feed has an individual icon on the desktop.

Other features found in NewsRoom:

  • Icon interface make it easy to track your feeds
  • Add new feeds from featured list, search or by using your own URL
  • Skim article summaries
  • Battery optimization

You can download NewsRoom for $4.99 today in the Android Market.  There’s also a trial version that’s offered for free however, I don’t know what the difference is other than perhaps a time limit.  According to the product’s blog,  if you do switch from trial to full version, your feeds will not make the jump.

    Thanks for the kind words all, glad you are liking it.

    The free version will expire. However, there is a way to bring your feeds over from the Trial version. There is also support for importing OPML files (like from Google Reader).

    It's probably worth noting that NewsRoom also makes bad RSS feeds better. Where most readers give you 1-2 sentences, NewsRoom will oftentimes expand it into the full article and have that available for offline viewing.

    Compare NewsRoom and other RSS feeds for sites like CNN, NYT, Yahoo Top News, etc.

    This is a great App, love the interface, I have already removed a few of the RSS Apps and just included the RSS Feeds address and it found it imported it very easy, and I like the fact of storing the feeds on the SD card instead of my Droid's memory.

    very nice, only feature I wish it had was to import all my feeds from google reader.

    You can import OPML files that you can export from Google Reader. But there is a limit to the number of feeds.
