One of my main information stream inputs is RSS feeds. Yet many link to long articles on strangely designed web pages, so I regularly read using Instapaper, or Readability.

Is there a RSS reader with built-in integration with Instapaper?

I want to quickly scan lots of feeds, and hit one button to send to Instapaper. Yes I know that I could use Google Reader, on a browser, with the Instapaper extension installed.

I find the web interface of google hard to scan quickly, and I would prefer an offline RSS reader.

Reeder (for both the iPhone and Mac OS) can send articles to Instapaper.

Reeder integrates Readability as well as Instapaper. And there's a beta of an OS X version, too. – Mike Scott Feb 15 '11 at 17:41

NetNewsWire integrates with Instapaper and also syncs with Google Reader.

My favourite, Feedler, although only the Pro (paid) version supports Instapaper.

There are LOTS of them. My favorites are:

River of News for iPad - $3.99.

MobileRSS for iPad/iPhone/iPod - Free/Paid versions.

Reeder for Mac - Free for now while in beta.

If you use Safari, PureReader extension makes Google Reader webapp SOOO much nicer.

By the way, you didn't say which platform you're using.

I'm currently using Gruml, a slightly clunky but useful RSS reader for the Mac. It seems to support a lot of services, including Instapaper. It is also a beta and slightly buggy.

Agree on being buggy - shows promise though. – Owen Feb 16 '11 at 3:18
