Flipboard updated with Google Reader and Flickr integration

Flipboard, the RSS and social aggregator that recently won Apple's US iTunes iPad app of the year, has gotten a pretty solid update today featuring even more sources for quality content. First up is a pretty big one -- Flipboard now integrates with Google Reader, arguably the most popular way of organizing RSS feeds. Now you can sign in with your Google account, pull in and sync up all your feeds...

Google Reader app for Android now available

Google has released an official Google Reader app for Android, and it's perhaps unexpectedly quite packed with features for a first release. It obviously allows you to read the feeds you subscribe to on the go, shows unread counts, items shared by friends, and lets you like and star posts -- but there is more to it than just that. It supports multiple accounts and synced preferences (although ...

NewsBlur is a slick, impressive, undocumented RSS reader

NewsBlur is a very beautiful feed reader that's laden with tons of JavaScript, but it utterly lacks any form of documentation. It's an open source project by the talented Samuel Clay, who has been working on it for 15 months now. He's currently working on an iPhone version, but the regular version is very impressive in itself. The sources are hosted over on GitHub, and the project uses the Django...

The best Google Reader mod becomes a Safari extension

My favorite userstyle for Google Reader is Snow Leopard. It uses space much more efficiently and looks much prettier than Reader's default UI. In fact, I like it so much that it's become weird to see the default skin. Now there's good news for anyone else who likes Snow Leopard as much as I do: the Snow Leopard userstyle is now available as a Safari extension for Safari 5! Of course, you ca...

Screenshot tour: Desktop Google Reader (NOT by Google)

Desktop Google Reader is quite a lofty name for a program; bordering on trademark infringement, I would say. But that's not the only thing wrong with this program. Wait, before I bash it I have to tell you what it's supposed to do: It's basically "Google Reader for your desktop". It plugs into your Google account and pulls feeds and items off Reader, no OPML export needed. And this is anothe...

Google super-charges Reader and turns it into an Interwebs slideshow

In a move that is surely reminiscent of Microsoft and Bing's emphasis on VISUAL RESULTS (did you see Pivot?!), Google has just launched a new feature for its Reader. It's called Reader Play, and it lets you click through all of the goodies that the Internet has to offer (or at least the bits of the Internet that Google has deemed 'cool') in a sharp, fast, and minimalist black interface. Yes, this...

Google Reader goes realtime with PubSubHubBub support

RSS readers are a fantastic way to get news, but what if RSS just isn't fast enough for you? Well, Speed Racer, you'll love PubSubHubBub, the protocol that pushed new blog posts out to your reader, instead of waiting for your reader to come looking for them. The result: you get new posts from PubSub-enabled blogs in real time. "But," you wonder, "what if my reader doesn't support PubSub?" If...

Google Listen 1.1 for Android syncs podcast subscriptions with Google Reader

Google has released an updated version of podcast manager Google Listen for Android. Like the previous version, Google Listen 1.1 lets you find and subscribe to podcasts from your handset. But the new version also lets you save your subscription data to the cloud using Google Reader, which makes it easy to synchronize your podcast subscriptions across devices and make sure nothing happens to yo...

Subscribe to any page with Google Reader. No feed? No problem.

Google Reader is a hugely popular - and very effective - way to subscribe to feeds from your favorite websites. What if you want updates from a website that doesn't have a feed, though? Reader can now solve that problem and allow you to subscribe to the site's changes anyway, with custom feeds. Reader will add a snippet to your new custom feed whenever the site updates, keeping you on top of any ...

FeedDemon 3.1 brings serious performance and social improvements

Google Reader is really dominating in the world of RSS readers, but if you're looking for a desktop experience that has the best of what Google Reader offers, but a faster and more desktop-like experience on Windows, you definitely need to check out FeedDemon. The latest version of FeedDemon, newly release 3.1 offers some serious performance improvements from 3.0, which was a feature release that ...

Reeder for iPhone lets you read your Google Reader feeds in style

For the last few weeks I've been looking for a suitable RSS reader application for my iPhone. I've found myself frustrated with long-time favourite NetNewsWire (which currently lacks any of the Google Reader sharing options) and the Google Reader web UI. Much like every Twitter client out there, I've bought my fair share of RSS readers for the iPhone and after much testing I have finally found a n...

10 web apps you should be running on your Mac with Fluid

As web apps become more powerful, more popular, and more full-featured, they're starting to replace desktop apps for many people. A Mac app called Fluid can pull those web applications onto your desktop and turn them into OS X native site-specific browsers. Fluid has a lot of advantages compared to running web apps in your browser: you get a Cocoa app with its own Dock icon, automatic un...

Google Reader now sorts your feeds "by magic"

Google has made a couple of big improvements to Google Reader, aimed at helping you easily sift through all those RSS feeds to get to the stories you'll find most relevant. One set of new features focuses on finding relevant content that you weren't already aware of, and another feature sorts the stuff you're already subscribed to. In the sidebar, you'll notice a new "recommended sources" list. ...

Realmac buys EventBox social networking app, calls it Socialite

Eventbox, an all-in-one social networking app with Twitter, Flickr, Google Reader and Digg support (and more), impressed me when I reviewed it last year. Now it's been acquired by UK-based Realmac software, makers of LittleSnapper and Rapidweaver (and, full disclosure, home to Download Squad's Nik Fletcher). So, to acknowledge its new developers, Eventbox is also getting a new name: Socialite. ...

NetNewsWire reaches version 3.2, finalises Google Reader support + ads

NetNewsWire, the Mac OS X RSS client from Newsgator, has reached version 3.2, bringing out of Beta the application's Google Reader support. Formerly used to connect to Newsgator's own servers, NetNewsWire entered a period of rapid change on 30th July, when it was announced on Newsgator's blog that the consumer back end service was to be discontinued on August 31st 2009. Although NetNewsWire ha...
