Feed Me updated to version 2.0, adds podcast support and more
Feed Me is a popular RSS Reader for your Windows Phone that was recently updated to version 2.0. Feed Me can be used as a stand alone reader or as a Google Reader client.

Here's what you'll find with Feed Me v2.0.
- Added a full two-way sync with Google Reader
- Added support for downloading and listening to podcasts when the app is no longer running
- Added music + video hub integration
- Added support for fast app-switching Keyword highlighting for articles
- Switched to SQL for a more reliable and faster cache

There are a few known issues with the version 2.0 and a fix for these bugs has been submitted to Microsoft. Nonetheless, the update improves upon an already nice RSS reader for your Windows Phone. There are two versions available for Feed Me over at the Windows Phone Store. You have a free, full-functional, ad support version and a $1.99, ad free version.
