    I used to use Newsbreak on my PPC, and now I need a replacement. I'm assuming it can all be done with some sort of online news aggregator, but I don't know where the best place to start.

    Can anybody give me a good recommendation of an application or website that can aggregate all my news feeds in one place?

    Thanks

    newsgator.com would be a great place to start. they have an iphone app called netnewswire that is one of the best for rss feed aggregating.

    I'm also looking for a NewsBreak replacement...what sort of podcast support does NetNewsWire have? Can it automatically download podcasts from an RSS feed? Where does it store them? How do you play them?

    Thanks. I'll give it a look. Have you used it?

    Yes, I'm also currently using iTunes for podcasts, but I'd like some way to update them without connecting to my PC.

    For purely RSS, I use Google Reader. It's not an offline product, but it is nice to have what I have read sycn online. I use iTunes for my podcasts, so I am not sure if it handles podcasts.

    I'm really liking Google Reader. With Newsbreak, some feeds would only have the intro paragraph, Reader seems to get most feeds complete and most with pictures.

    I wish there was a way to read off line. But I think I'm out of luck.
