In Lion's Mail app, I can subscribe to RSS feeds and have them show up in the inbox. Can I do the same with the Mail app in iOS 5.1.1?

No, the iOS mail app does not double as an RSS reader. Fortunately, however, there are many great RSS apps in the app store, my personal favorite is Reeder (iPhone, iPad).

  • just curious, do you genuinely like using Mail.app as your RSS reader?

    Yep. Why run a separate app? Mail's already open. Jun 10, 2012 at 0:48
  • Fair enough. I run Sparrow (both on iOS and OSX) for mail and Reeder for RSS. I like single purpose software.
