Viewing RSS Feeds on the iPhone

The Safari browser on the iPhone does support RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds. Most news sites, blogs, and corporate sites today provide RSS feeds so that users can subscribe to them and check the feed rather than constantly going directly to the site to see if it’s been updated. Some sites actually have the links to their various RSS feeds right on their homepages. However, it’s easier to bookmark and organize these feeds on your computer rather than doing it on the iPhone. On your computer, use Safari (available for both Mac and PC) and go to some of your favorite sites. You will see an RSS button at the right side of the Address Bar if the site has a feed. Click the RSS button to take you to the feed page for that particular site. This is the page you’ll want to bookmark. I place all my RSS feeds in a folder called (wait for it) RSS on my Bookmarks Bar. When you’re done setting up your RSS folder, sync your computer and your iPhone to update your Bookmarks. Now when you’re on the iPhone, you can tap any feed in that folder to see all the current headlines for that site.
