Can't most of these things be done in Safari for iOS 5?

I'm not sure I get this... Is this an RSS Reader, or is it just a webbrowser using the new built-in feature for reading webpages in safari? Or maybe some magazin like app?

"Read is an iPad..."? I think you meant an iPad "app"

Se7eN says:

Is there a exact app (or similar) for the iPhone? Cos having ads when browsing the net with an iPad doesn't exactly bother me one bit.

Reader in Safari doesn't support all pages, unlike this. It seems to be completely random when the reader button decides to appear in Safari. I'm not talking about forums either, I'm talking about regular news websites. This article right here for example does not have reader available in the title bar!
