Feeddler RSS Reader Pro ($4.99)
I read blogs using their RSS feed. I knew that the iPad would be a great way for me to read blogs since it is portable and designed for easy reading in your lap.
Finding the right RSS reader app was not going to be easy. I was using Bloglines until they announced it was going under and so I switched my feeds to Google Reader and then back to Bloglines when it returned. But, I decided I didn't like it was much anymore and just added the few I had started reading back to Google Reader. Doesn't that sound confusing? I think so.
I spent an evening with my netbook cleaning up the list of blogs I read and then another afternoon reading the descriptions and reviews of the apps at iTunes. I settled on Feeddler after looking at the developer's page.
I downloaded and used the free one for a few days and then bought the Pro version for $4.99. Feeddler reads the blogs from Google Reader so the time spent on getting that set up was worth it.
I find that it is so easy that I can probably read more blogs than ever before. The pro version syncs the ones you add from Feedler on the iPad to the main area at Google Reader.
One thing I really like about reading feeds on my iPad is that if I want to I can move quickly to the viewing of the actual blog. People are so creative about the look and feel of their blogs that I always felt I was missing something.
