best rss reader apps for android
It’s true that RSS isn’t as popular as it once was. Even so, it’s a great way to stay up to date on the latest news and pull together a ton of news stories from various websites and sources. There are still plenty of people who use it and it’s one of the best power user tools available for those who need to stay current. Do keep in mind, though, that not every website keeps an updated RSS feed anymore. Here are the best RSS reader apps for Android!

There isn't much else to say, really. It does sway a bit toward the power user. Those who need it to be really simple may need something else like Flipboard or Feedly.
