GRiS - Google Reader for iPhone

Update: The latest version downloads your folders from the reader and you can select them

I have installed it. couldnt get it to work. specially the Feeds (tags) section was weird. Then i came across the cruxial hint – tags = folders in Google Reader. So here it’s how to set up your jailbroken iPhone.

Install:

from Cydia Installer

Settings:

Google Reader Visit your Google Reader Page and go to the settings section. If you have already sorted your RSS into folders remember them or creat a new folder called whatever e.g. “iRSS”. Then put all your feeds into that folder

GRiS

  1. Accounts: fill in your google authenification
  2. Feeds: Here enter the desired folder (remembered from GoogleReader) or the iRSS
  3. Sync: select how many you want to download and press sync
  4. Items: Here are the articles

Summary:

If you have a huge number of feeds or a feed with fast updating articles (like google news etc) it isnt a good idea to include it. Because the GRiS doesnt show the Article sorted into your feeds. Therefore i have created a new folder for downloading to the iphone. GRiS is nice to have your articles ready offline but whenever i’m online i use the native GoogleReader.
