Flow Reader is built for simplicity and speed. It lets you store content offline, filter articles that you have read, or even add your own custom filters for a faster, cleaner experience. With filters, your feeds are kept simple, allowing you to avoid the hassle of sorting through hundreds of Google Reader items, and letting you focus on only the most important news for the day.

For example. you can filter articles by author if you want to keep track of your favorite writers. Setting up a custom filter for specific topics allows you to pierce through the noise and saves you time.

You can also do the usual things a good RSS reader app would let you do, including starring articles, mark when read, switching through subscriptions and stories, and sync stories seamlessly. Flow Reader hates ads, and that’s why its own algorithm will scan your articles and block ads for you.

    IMO, this should be a standard feature in every RSS app available. Why it isn't is beyond me. What I'd love is to have an email-style 'rules wizard' that lets you do stuff based on criteria, such as display articles in different colors move them to folders, or whatever else. I actually wrote my own little RSS app just for this purpose. Just in the feeds that contain local news, I have over 400 words|phrases set up to filter out articles about murders, kidnappings, car wrecks, etc. Filtering out all the crap in all my feeds has cut down on my RSS reading time by about 70% :)
