google-reader-iphone-sync

GRis (Google Reader iPhone Sync) is an RSS feed reader for the iPhone. There are already a few available, but this one features:

  • It syncs with Google Reader. So items you read will be marked as read, and you can star items to come back to them later.
  • It saves images in feeds for offline viewing. Surprisingly few iPhone RSS readers do this, which sucks if (like me) you own an iPod Touch, the sans-3G bastard son of an iPhone.
  • It's free
  • ... and it's entirely open source (the best kind of free).

Using it:

The best way to install is via my cydia repository at gfxmonk.sysprosoft.com/cydia/

If you want to install a modified package, you should update the cydia/control file so that it won't clash with official versions. Then, run cap package. Copy this package file to your iPhone and run dpkg -i GRiS.deb

See saurik's tutorial for instructions on creating your own repository.

Build Dependencies:

Since the tool is thrown together with what I had around, its dependencies are a bit all over the place:

  • some kind of *nix environment (OSX or Linux should be fine. Using cygwin hopefully works on windows)
  • Python
  • Ruby
  • Capistrano (sudo gem install capistrano)

On your iPhone / iPod Touch, you will need:

  • To be jailbroken, for starters.
  • python
  • OpenSSH (to transfer a modified program)
