I am using Newsbreak for Pocket PC and Pluck for desktop/web.

I am looking for a good RSS reader that is very reliable and inexpensive.

The one issue with using Pluck/Newsbreak combo is that I need to maintain 2 RSS environments, I want to maintain one.

The only one I have seen that has everything is NewsGator.

Any Suggestions.

Thank You

Since you to keep all in sync, then Newsgator is an option but I think the mobile version is not part of the free package. Also, the mobile version is actually accessed from the Pocket Internet Explorer (which is nice, since is one less program using the memory on the device) so you must go online to use it. It's not a big deal, since it's a very light version ideal for mobile devices.

I know there's someone developing a Pocket PC reader that is offline and synchronises with Newsgator, but it's not available yet.

Anothe option is Attensa. It works on Microsoft Outlook, web browser and the seems to be in their plans to have the FreeRange mobile reader working with their platform.

I personally use Newsgator.
