Showing full content from the feed shows you everything the publisher has written for each item, <u>as it is included in the XML feed</u>. Download for offline reading downloads a copy of the web page feed items <u>link to</u>.
Publishers often only include a snippet of each article in their feeds because they want you to click through to their web page to get the full article, where they can show you ads. Since you can't do this when you're offline, Awasu has this option to download these web pages while you're connected so that you can read them even if you go offline.
