RSSTab for HTC Sense Updated
It’s been a while since meltwater‘s much-requested RSSTab for HTC Sense (Windows Mobile) hit the web, and it has evolved considerably in the mean time.
The omission of an RSS-displaying Sense tab was always a relatively unfathomable move by HTC: one would expect that among the easy-to-access Twitter feeds and e-Books, the option to check up on RSS feeds would not be far away.

Improvements included in the updated modification are refreshed graphics and the extremely useful ability to install the tab from a .cab, as opposed to the somewhat tricky process of manually adding the Manila files.
Give the RSS tab a try by downloading it and following the instructions from this thread.

Below this is the start of a standard...
