Best Symbian RSS Reader? (For Nokia E72 in particular)

Can anyone suggest a good RSS reader for the E72?

 

I have tried several so far (including Handy RSS and Resco News) but none is fully ok. Either they lack some features (like OPML import or timed updates) or have poor usability.

 

Resco News would be acceptable but it appears to crash a lot on my E72. When updating it just exits, as if the process is killed.The app hasn't been updated in over a year or so.

 

Any suggestions?


Thanks

I still using Resco News. Yes, it almost always fails and closes if you trying to update all channels, eveven if one channel. On my previous phone it also failed. But I really don't know any similar programs.. I use resco. There are two hints (it works for me): 1. Before update all channels open any channel and read one of news. 2. Holding "down" button while updating channels prevents closing of application (for me).

I tried your tricks but it doesn't seem to make a difference in mine,,, it still crashes a lot. I thought it was due to the E72s low memory problem but maybe it fails parsing some sites... in any case Resco seems to have abandoned it.

The S60 browser has a built-in RSS viewer, with an auto-update function. I won't comment much on it, though.

*I* can comment on the built-in S60 RSS Reader, like I'm unable to start it since after 1 week I bought my 5800 because of an "unknown error".

 

I just got GreenPack Tech's Tech RSS Mobile News Reader from the OVI store http://store.ovi.com/content/20601: it misses many features, like categories, update all, etc., but it's lightning fast and has an option to import subscriptions in OPML format from a URL. For 1 euro, I could not ask more.

 

I also instralled the trial version of Epocware's Handy RSS, but it crashes as soon as I try to access the program. Maybe it tries to access the settings of the built-in S60 RSS Reader and bumps into the same "unknown error".

 

OVI store also offers i2technologia's CatchUp for free. It has a quirky UI. Also, it finds RSS feeds starting from a domain name URL. That's incredibly handy, but I am having a hard time figuring out how results (which have often the title of one post, like "company XXX announces new device YYY") are matched to feeds.
