One of the main blogs I'm reading has recently transitioned from publishing the full posts in its RSS feed, to publishing just the first few sentences with a "read more" link. This drastically slows me down when reading, as it requires an extra tap and a good number of seconds to load the full, heavy web page instead of the previously light article.

Is there any app that can automatically fetch the full articles from a blog when reading the feed, or - better yet - store all of them in advance so that it can be read offline?


Edit- Newsflow does exactly this with the ability to save article to pocket for offline reading

Also this can be done with Feedly with a simple tweak. Adding a user script called 'full feed' that you can plugin with tampermonkey or stylish that expands the entire article inside Feedly. This also can be saved to pocket for offline view.

  • It seems that Feedly was not mentioned in the question. Are you assuming that the OP is having the problem described while using this app? – Chris Mukherjee Jan 26 '15 at 0:53
  • He asked for a recommendation for an app that provides the entire feed without having to leave the app to the browser to "read more". I provided a specific solution to give him just that. – Meatball Jan 29 '15 at 22:06

Readkit for Mac has the ability to fetch the whole article via Readability. Reeder for iOS does the same.

  • Seems like Readability only handles one article at a time, when I specifically enter its URL... I'm looking for an automatic solution to pre-fetch all posts in a blog. (E.g. from the past 30 days) – GJ. Mar 30 '14 at 21:59

It's not an app, but I've had good luck using Full-Text RSS, which is a site that can convert most RSS feeds into full text. You can either host it yourself or use their hosted version.
