Greenlight Wireless has introduced RSS newsfeeds support on their Skweezer service. The addition of this new feature was prompted by a recent survey of Skweezer users, which put mobile RSS access at the top of users' wish list for the service.
Skweezer users can now read RSS feeds on their wireless handheld devices, such as Pocket PC or mobile phones, without using a stand-alone RSS Reader. RSS feeds are often more convenient for mobile users to read than full Web pages, as they consist of a list of headlines and short descriptions that link to the full story or article.

RSS feeds can also be bookmarked in Skweezer, allowing quick access to frequently visited newsfeeds right from the Skweezer homepage.
