Mr. Reader$3.99NoYesYesNoYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesNoAdd - yes; organize - noMy favorite RSS app at the moment, though I still have to use other apps thanks to Mr. Reader leaving out the ability to Share With Note -- a bizarre oversight. Inclues delightful little sound effects (that can be turned off) that make me smile; remembers my preferred reading mode for each feed - the options are RSS, Web, Readability, and Mobilizer; has action buttons to the side of each article in list view for quickly skimming and marking articles.

MobileRSS HD$4.99 (and a free version)YesYesYesYesNoNoYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesThis would be my second preferred RSS app if it it didn't crash 3 out of 5 times on opening. It might not have the pretty touch gestures of Reeder, but I think it has far more functionality.

Feeddler RSS Reader Pro$4.99 (and a free version)YesNoYesNoNoNoNoYesYesYesYesYesYesNoIt's okay in the feature department, but does not bring the aesthetic experience of the other apps. Misses out on the little details that Reeder and Mr. Reader use to make news reading enjoyable.

Reeder$4.99NoNoNoNoNoNoYesYesYesYesYesYesYesNoOf all these apps, Reeder does make the best use of pinching, swiping, and other mutli-touch gestures of the iPad OS, but at the same time, they don't feel necessary. My biggest pet peeve with Reeder is that the app settings are under the iPad's Settings. Why? Just put them in the app itself, so I can change things while I'm thinking of them. Drives me crazy. Also, I didn't realize just how many features were missing from Reeder until I made this chart. I'm surprised it's so popular, actually.

River of News$3.99YesYesNoNoNoNoYesYesYesYesYesNot ReallyNoNoHas several customizable gesture commands to create quick tap shortcuts.

Perfect RSS Reader$0.99NoYesNoYesNoNoYesYesNoYesYesNot ReallyYesYesAlso has gestures to customize, but keeps the feed list in a pop-up window which I found annoying. But has a nice clean look and an option to view feeds in an image gallery.
