iPad: RSS5000 is a clever newsreader that lets you bypass viewing article snippets and browse the full article of any RSS feed.
We like to focus on free apps, but $6 for a good RSS reader on the iPad isn’t bad — especially when it solves a really common, annoying problem. Even if RSS feeds provide the full article, you don’t always get perfect formatting and embedded video can often be a problem. RSS5000 solves this problem by providing you with the actual web page of the article when you click on each feed, letting you see the full content every time. It works by downloading the pages ahead of time so you don’t have to wait for them to load. It syncs with Google Reader and provides a simple, minimalist interface. If you’re tired of dealing with article snippets, RSS5000 is a really great solution.
RSS5000 is available right now, for $6, on the iTunes App Store.
