Just a question for anyone using this app... I wanted a good RSS reader, decided to yet this one, but it's asking me for wap IP, wap port abo wap APN. Anyone know what settings to enter for tmo? I can't remember the blackberry APN and have no clue about the other settings. Thanks for the help, and if there is a better RSS reader I should try I'm open to suggestions.

c'mon, olly - you know better... my search result came back with this.


i tried newsberry for a bit when i got my 7100t and i liked the simple, straightforward design. some talk about it here. i eventually dropped it, as the support wasn't very fresh and the connection was goofy, working sometimes, and in ways that it sorta shouldn't. i had one or two email dialogs with one of the developers, but then my last questions went unanswered (that was a year ago). never got around to registering the app, but that was because of the support (or lack thereof), and while troubleshooting the original connection issues, the need to remove and then reinstall the app also meant having to add feeds back in. it just seemed a hassle not worth chasing.

everyone here seems to like bloglines or FreeNews (<~ misnomer). NewsClip is another option, but was too PocketPCish for my taste.

so i've been using Mobile FeedBurner, and while the support isn't very current, and even though it is still allegedly BETA, i haven't had any issues with it.

Hey thanks for the response, I appreciate it. Sorry about not searching was on the train and in a hurry lol. I'll check out the apps you mentioned! Again thanks, want to avoid bloglines since I prefer a device based solution.

my sentiments exactly, which is why i sought out other options that eventually led me to FBMobile.
yes, there is a desktop edition, but they don't integrate. that was to be available in future releases.

and i found the proper link to the 'berry beta release.
