I'm looking for an app to read RSS feeds on my iPod Touch. I saw Reeder, but it looks like it only interoperates with Google Reader, as far as I can tell -- you can't just add an arbitrary RSS feed. Is there a good RSS reader that works without Google Reader?

NewsRack is pretty solid, with a simple clean interface, and the ability to add feeds directly int he app- no Google reader required.

I use Reeder now, which I think has a nicer, slicker interface, but Reeder requires Google sync - you can't add feeds directly in the app. Before that, I was very happy with NewsRack.

Does NewsRack allow offline reading? – mipadi Oct 10 '10 at 6:37

NetNewsWire is a good reader and syncing with Google Reader is optional.
