Mobile RSS Reader

Someone emailed me asking if I know of a mobile RSSmda.jpg reader and that prompted me to mention something I failed in my previous post. You can use Attensa to feed RSS articles into Outlook folders but you’ll find these will not be available for sync when using ActiveSync (in the email folder options).

To get around this, reconfigure Attensa and point the parent folder to be underneath your personal folder (such as your Inbox). Restart everything, including ActiveSync and you’ll see all your RSS feed folders popup. Next time you sync, bingo, all those RSS articles will appear as email on your mobile. The only real drawback is you have to manually select folders, ActiveSync doesn’t allow you to select a folder and have it sync all children. Oh well, I’ll wait for Attensa Mobile.
