    Hi,


    If I was to develop an app for the ipad containg some simple news features, can I use RSS feeds for free (eg Reuters)? I read they are for non-commercial use only, but what does it mean? Are there feeds for commercial use also?


    Thanks!

    They mean as in using them as news. Like towards blogging, radio talk, etc etc. But you can use it for personal use.

    Hi, thanks

    so when we would provide the content of the feeds in an app for users (personal use) it would not be a problem?
    Even when the app will generate money through ads?

    It wouldnt be a problem if you provide feeds/rss for your viewers. Some rss apps generate money from ads but that only affects the developer of the app, not the person hosting their own rss.
