Included in Safari for iOS 8 is support for RSS. With RSS support, Safari allows you view feeds of articles in the browser window as well as saving feeds so that you can quickly access them later.
RSS – an acronym for “Really Simple Syndication” or “Rich Site Summary” – is a technology that allows you aggregate articles (blog posts) from various sites. Many popular Website blogs provide RSS feeds enabling you to keep up with the latest news and information.
Once you add an RSS feed, posts from the feed displays titles and a brief description under the Shared Links tab. Click on the link to view the entire article.
If you have your Twitter feed enabled, Tweets will also display under the shared link tab. Tap the on/off button on the Subscriptions screen to toggle your Twitter feed.
