Mobile RSS Reader

Mobile RSS Reader is a J2ME (Java ME) MIDP application that is able to read most RSS servers and feed versions. RSS is a lightweight XML format designed for sharing headlines and other content like blogs and news. The data are stored on the mobile device and updated on request. It supports most encodings. It can import and synchronize RSS feed lists using formats and filter feeds based on name and URL. All/modified feeds can be updated with a single command. The zip file contains all versions for MIDP 1.0 devices, MIDP 2.0 devices without JSR-75, and MIDP 2.0 with JSR-75 devices.
