PureRSS is an RSS and Atom feed reader (most news services and websites publish RSS feeds) that is completely self contained within the phone application.
AndroidTapp.com Android App Review:
Pros & Cons:
- No search for feeds, must type full URL
- Some article content just doesn’t show at all
PureRSS Android App is an RSS reader for your feeds on the go. I guess I’ve been spoiled by RSS reader apps like NewsRoom or Feedr where you simply search the website feed you’d like and it fetches the exact URL(s), whereas you need to know and type the full URL with PureRSS. Once feeds are downloaded scroll through a list of titles, tap to read content (weird… offers a snippet above the full article when that should have been back on the list of titles screen), plus link to view the article on the Web.
Gripe Alert: unknown reason but some articles simply doesn’t show in display view.

RSS Readers are great and very useful for keeping up with your favorite news, blogs and websites on the go!
Ease of Use:
Mentioned earlier the app requires the full URL of the feed you want to consume, other than that it is straight-forward… add as many feeds as you like.
Possibly used multiple times daily.
The user interface is basic, could use some spice however when it does pull in feeds properly it formats for easy reading on the small screen.
