    Flow Reader gives you an easy way to be on par with your RSS/Google Reader feeds on the go. It was built to provide a minimalist and seamless experience for offline browsing, while delivering additional features not found in similar apps.

    Some of the main features include:
    - A sleek and fast user interface;
    - Offline item content and state caching;
    - Multiple simultaneous downloads for fast content synchronization;
    - Content filters that automatically mark as read the items you're not interested in;
    - Sort items by state (latest/unread/starred) or author;
    - Smart algorithms that remove ads and other undesirable content from items;
    - No ads.
