I use "Reeder" (which syncs with Google reader) on my Ipad2 and when l surf the internet I come across sites which have an RSS feed.
I want to subscribe to a news feed,but i can't on the Ipad. I don't get the choice to choose my reader or even Google reader. I have to mail the internet link to my laptop where I do get the choice of Google reader subscription.
Any ideas or how dou you guys do it ?
Visit the Google Reader site in Safari on the iPad and add use the + Subsciption button. You can eithe copy&paste the link from where ever you found it, or search for the site with key words.
Reeder should add the new RSS feed the next time it syncs.
I used to use Reeder but have now switched to River of News. Just prefer it.
Adding subscriptions in a browser isn't as intuitive as Goog thinks. They really could do with updating their interface.
I'll have to check out River of News.

Keyword searches sometimes work real well, and other times will throw up all kinds of garbage that may, or may not have the right feed listed. I suspect there is a place where sites register with Goggle for their RSS feeds, and those that do show up at the top of the search results for their sites. Or it could just be in the header for the site.
AppAdvice recently redid their site, and the RSS feed disappeared both from Google Reader and the site. I did all kinds of key word searches without any luck. After I sent AppAdvice a note, they said oops and put the RSS feed back up. It did not show up on the site page immediately, but suddenly searching for them with keywords no longer showed a list of possibles, they just got added automatically.
Some readers let you sync with Google Reader, and add feeds manually. As far as I know they don't add those feeds back to Google Reader though, so you end up with a mishmash of what you can read depending on what you are doing the reading with.
Thanks a lot, it works, when you're used to work with Windows for the past 12 years, its an other way of thinking, l mean the "Apple way" of thinking :)
