English term or phrase: feed reader
Definition from Regents of the University of California:
A software package that enables you to easily read the XML code in which RSS feeds are written. Bloglines is currently the most popular feed reader but there are many competitors.

Example sentence(s):
  • RSS feed readers offer one of the most efficient ways to follow news, web site and software updates, newsletters, blogs and more. About.com, a part of The New York Times
  • Once you have your Feed Reader, it is a matter of finding sites that syndicate content and adding their RSS feed to the list of feeds your Feed Reader checks. Many sites display a small icon with the acronyms RSS, XML, or RDF to let you know a feed is available. WhatIsRSS.com
  • Feed readers can run on your computer or you can sign up to use a feed-reader that runs on the web. If you use one of the web-based readers, you can access your feeds from anywhere you go, just by signing into the website that manages your feeds. Six Apart, Ltd.

Definition from own experience or research:
新聞閱讀器 literally says "News Reader".

Example sentence(s):
  • Awasu是RSS新聞閱讀器,可監控網站和blog. - Cnet Taiwan  

The term "reader" is often translated as "聚合器" (aggregator, see wikipedia) as well. Also, it is OK to leave "Feed" or "RSS" in English. (e.g. RSS 閱讀器). Note that there happens to be a feed reader called "FeedReader", which is a product name and should not be translated.

BTW, the Chinese characters are in Traditional Chinese.
