It has been a while since we discussed multiFEED, a fast and easy to use RSS and Atom reader that offered decent functionality depending on which level you chose to purchase. The application may have been simple but being able to read the news on the go and customize the appearance made them easy to read.

Since my original review, the application continued to grow and incorporate new features and capabilities. One of the issues I found with the application was that it lacked a true reader mode and only displayed the embedded article. The developer has now incorporated a feature similar to that of the BlackBerry 10 browser into the application in the latest version, which now stands at v2.4.0.2.

All of the updates added are shown below.

  • Reader Mode: Removes ads, menus, clutter, and distractions from article pages for easier reading
  • Choose Bright, Dark, or device default color theme regardless of which device you are using
  • Improved keyboard shortcuts
  • Quick email support buttons added throughout the app
  • Feed URL test function added to help diagnose feed problems. Results can be emailed to arsMOBILIS for assistance.
  • Improved Hub error notification messages
  • More control over what multiFEED does when on WiFi vs. carrier networks. (reduces data usage)
  • Various workarounds for misbehaving and misconfigured RSS/Atom feed servers enable multiFEED to handle feeds that other readers choke on
  • Various small fixes for rarely encountered bugs

While the application is free to download as a trial, there are two in-app upgrades available. There is a standard $.99 that removes the restriction on preset/locked feeds, does not support aggregate feeds, and gives up to ten single feeds of your choice. The premium/full version for $2.99 unlocks all capabilities and allows up to fifty single or aggregate feeds of your choice and up to ten feeds per aggregate.

You should look into it this is a really good app by a great developer..

Classifieds Canada and GeoYeo B4B Apps all the way!!!

Thanks for the valuable input to the thread! I'm sure this post will help a lot of users to decide whether or not to try the app out. You seem to also have completely thought your response through that you had to comment again, in no mean were rushing to get the first post!

Scoring 1st and 2nd in a post; go celebrate! Maybe have a party in that heavenly basement of yours; put that $15000 stero system to some use and invite your friends over. Play hide and seek, sleepover. Live the moment!

PS. don't take this as a permission to throw a party. Your mom still has to approve it.

Opera mini rss feeds is much more useful than all this feeds app
+it provides us options to have low,medium,high quality photos
+no ads at all
+no restrictions on no. Of feeds
+ only 25% of data usage cost as compared to these app
Only one negative point - it has no hub alerts

Does it have offline? So I can sync it before getting in the subway.

If yes, a full sync option for a category or folder.

Man, this app looks great already. Especially if it does hub notifications like I'm hoping.

Seems to work well but I don't know how to get feeds I would use so will be deleting it.

You can tell that a lot of love went into this app. From the icons to the feel and flow. Really nice work.
