XPRSS Free RSS Feed Reader Updated to 1.1

Captura al 14-12-2010 17-59-12We mentioned this lean and fast RSS reader a few days back. The team behind the application promised an update this month and they have delivered version 1.1. This new version brings quite a few new features including bug fixes for OS 6.  You can pick up the update via app world at this link. A cool new feature is the ability to set the option of SPRSS to launch the native social network apps and 3rd party apps to share an article.  Other options include the ability to select your wireless network options that includes BIS, BES, TCP, WAP, and Wifi.

Changes include:

  • -Copy and paste
  • -Options menu for network settings and social network
  • -Full story view via google mobilizer and instapaper
  • -Share via direct launch of social networking apps (it copies and you need to paste the content once app is launched)
  • -Supports OPML
  • -Read/unread
  • -Date and time
  • -Bug fixes (OS 6.0)

One thing that most RSS readers are missing that VIIGO had was the ability to read full stories when only part of the story showed up. Most RSS readers usually launch your BlackBerry browser to get the story but SPRSS new feature takes care of that and is super fast. I really like how fast this RSS reader works, there are still some features it lacks but overall I am pleased with the way it works. The guys behind the app said they are continuing to work on features we don’t see on this update but you can always send in suggestions to them. Click here to download on app world.

  1. Sometimes, and this is often, I hate the BlackBerry Crap…err…App World. The app updates are always days/weeks behind, but when I try to download new apps, I often have to find a direct OTA link because of ones like this. I searched both XPRSS and SPRSS in App World to no avail, then tried your link from my desktop, only to be told my Tour was not supported (but it is explicitly listed in the Supported Devices section).

    Anyway….has anyone had time to test this against the new BlackBerry News app?

  2. Looks really nice, will play around both this and the one from RIM to see which I prefer.
