iPhone’s built in RSS Reader

Posted by joy

Why yes, there is an RSS reader built into the iPhone. To access RSS feeds on the iPhone, all you need to do is enter the RSS feed URL into the Safari address bar. The feed is seemingly fetched through http://reader.mac.com. Radical, huh?

In fact, one of my readers clicked through my RSS feed and I was able to capture the referrer and user agent.
