Spitfire, previously known as PushPress, has been released by All Kapps Software and is looking quite good. The app is a RSS reader with a nice UI that lets you view RSS feeds right from your BlackBerry kind of like Viigo. The application is optimized for Feedburner feeds but it works with any RSS URL which is nice. The app also has a cool interface that is reminiscent of Apples Cover Flow tiles to browse through articles.
Where Spitfire differs from Viigo is its integration with WordPress blogs. If the blog you are reading has their WordPress plugin installed you get optimized content, images, and the ability to comment on the article directly from the app. While BerryReview runs on WordPress we have not yet installed the plugin to allow for commenting since there was not a large enough audience to justify installing a beta plugin. Let us know in the comments if you are interested and based on that we will decide.
Spitfire is regularly priced at $1.39 price but it is on sale for $0.99 until July 9th which is very reasonable. I was hoping they would go for an advertising supported model so they would have more users but the price is not high.
