After trying lots of them, I ended up with Newsclip by Virtual Reach. It costs $24 a year, which is annoying, but it works great.

It was very important for me to be able to download feeds into the BB for offline reading instead of having to go online to read, and so many of the RSS readers for Blackberry out there require you to fire up your browser to read.

After trying about 10 RSS readers for Blackberry out there, I'm amazed at the diversity. They all have different features, and I came to the realization that the reasons for using a RSS reader, and the preferred methods, are very user-defined. There's obviously no one best way to set up an RSS reader because of the diversity in the market of products and their functionality.

Funny thing is I still can't get one of them to uninstall -- NewsFlash -- because it's stuck in the modules screen without a delete option. If you know how to delete this, please see my other post on the matter.

Thumbs up Newsclips

I would have to agree with lawyervon on Newsclips being the best rss reader out there. Its too bad its $24.00 a year, but worth it as far as I am concerned. The free 7 day trial gave me time to work out a connection problem I was having with the TCP and T-mo USA and I got it working fine. When I did have the connection problems, their customer service responded to my email within an hour and continued communication was just as quick.

The program itself has a quicker download time then other programs I tried and the layout is sharp (I am very visual as well as functional). Adding rss urls on their site makes things easier then typing them in on the phone. I recommend it.

I like NewsClip too but 24$ is not worth when we can get around it..
I use Opera Mini because it has some form of feed. it is not as good as newsclip.
I tried installing litefeeds but it did not work.. I will give it another try.
