Well, that was a big zero

I'd been reading Reuters' news feed on my TX using Addit, until Reuters' pulled the plug. I'm now searching for a RSS reader that lets me read entire articles on my TX off line, rather than giving me one paragraph and then insisting that I go read the rest of the article on line via wireless connect. If I had THAT available I wouldn't be bothering with the RSS. I want a reader which will download feeds of full articles via HotSync with no further input required. Anybody out there know of one?

Re: Hey
Unfortunately, no - let me know if you find one. I suspect it's the usual assumption that everybody's using the same platform you are, and the folks who run these things read all their news off the net, regardless of the device they're using. I guess some folks live in a hot-spot rich environment.

Re: Hey
Alrighty!
Here's what i've come up with, it's called AvantGo and so far it's been great.
http://avantgo.com/frontdoor/index.html is the main page, and the Reuters news feed still doesnt work, but the NY Times does if that can make up for it. It has loads of news feeds to add on, and so far i've had no problems with it.
Although, i'm running a Palm Z22, but it works on all palm OS's, i think.
Lemme know how this works out for you!

Re: Hey
I just happened to come across your website, from google I think.
I was seeing if there was a way to fix the Addit problem, and figured i'd try to help you out if you haven't found a solution.
