If you haven’t been using Web Reader on your computer, you should know that it’s one of the most amazing powerful RSS readers available. Not too long ago, Webreader made its way onto your BlackBerry PlayBook as one of the smoothest RSS readers I’ve seen – in either portrait or landscape mode. It’s not only about reading, it’s about management. You receive notification of new articles being posted, mark articles as read or as a favourite or even share and article through Facebook or Twitter.
Web Reader offers offline support so you can still read your RSS feed when you are not using your BlackBerry Bridge or connected to WiFi. I loved the little things, such as being able to sync with Google Reader, video playback support and being able to get a full screen view when I tap on an article twice. If you’re worried about the security of your Google account, Web Reader uses oAuth protocol; which provides clients with a way to access server resources for an end-user, without the end-user having to provide their login credentials. This RSS reader should have been on the PlayBook since the beginning.
