    Default no feeds in Mobile RSS reader?

    I no longer get the default feeds when I launch Mobile RSS. Anyone else having this problem - or even better: a solution?

    I know how to do that, even though it's a more cumbersome process than with other RSS readers I've used on other phones, where you could search and select a result and import it into your reader list. But this ap initially had a bunch of feeds. Now they're gone, and I'm wondering where.

    I think the default feed is digg (http://digg.com/rss/index.xml). I don't use that one, I deleted it from my feeds.

    To add feed, touch the "i" on the upper left hand corner. That's where you can add feeds, with the plus/minus/save and keyboard. It's kinda cumbersome, you have to add the full address. (unless someone else knows a quicker way)

    I usually just find the feeds on my PC. With Firefox, there is usually a rss logo on the right side of the address bar where you can click to go to the rss feed. I just copy from that to the mobile rss reader.

    Mobile RSS really sucks. If you remove after the first installation the supplied digg.com feed, you can add your own, no problem. As soon as you try to install another feed, everything is gone, no more feeds. Seems to be a problem with the program.

    If you SSH into your phone, navigate to var/root/Library/Preferences/com.google.code.mobile-rss.plist and copy the plist to your computer. Then you can add feeds by editing the list there and copying it back to the phone. Works great, much faster than trying to type those long URLs on the phone.

    It would be nice to see some progess on this app though. I'd like to adjust the font size to be a lot smaller, for one thing.
