FeedDemon 3.0 desktop newsreader with Google Reader sync

Popular Windows RSS reader FeedDemon has hit version 3.0, and the latest version includes a number of new and tweaked features. This summer the team behind the RSS reader announced they would be shutting down the NewsGator web-based RSS reader. Instead, FeedDemon now synchronizes with Google Reader. That means you can read through your subscriptions in either Google Reader or FeedDemon and your ...

GReactions brings comments to Google Reader

Google Reader is great for keeping up with your favorite news feeds, but when it comes to reading blog comments, it doesn't really deliver. GReactions is a Firefox extension that fills the gap. It collects comments from the blog post itself, FriendFeed, Twitter, Digg, Hacker News, Reddit and more. You can access all of this by clicking a link that GReactions adds to the end of each post in Reader...

NewsGator kills its Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, Outlook clients too

A few days ago we let you know that NewsGator was planning to shut down its once-popular web-based RSS reader. But it looks like the NewsGator web client isn't the only product on the chopping block. The company is also killing off NewsGator Go! and NewsGator Inbox. NewsGator Inbox is an application that works with Microsoft Outlook to let you read and manage your feeds from the email client. New...

NewsGator kills its web-based feed reader, supports Google Reader instead

NewsGator's web-based feed reader has always gotten a lot of mileage as the only supportive way to sync with the popular FeedDemon desktop reader and NetNewsWire desktop and iPhone apps. But it almost seems redundant to support your own web-based RSS product when Google Reader is so popular, and offers a comparable user experience. That's what NewsGator seems to think, anyway. The company just ann...

Google Reader gadget for Google Desktop

Google had launched an official Google Reader gadget for Google Desktop. Basically this utility lets you read RSS feeds from Google Reader without opening a web browser. The interface is similar the web version, with all of your feeds and categories presented in a list. When you click on an individual feed (or "all items" or a label", you'll see a list of headlines and a first sentence or two. ...

Google Reader adds comments, risks wrath of web publishers

Google Reader has added a new feature that makes reading RSS feeds a more social experience: You can leave comments on other users' shared items. In other words, if your friend clicks the share button next to a blog post or news item in Google Reader, it will show up in your Friends' shared items section along with any comment they've left. Now you can also comment on their comment. If multiple ...

TwitteReader is like Google Reader for Twitter

If you've ever wished you could scroll through your Twitter messages and star your favorites for reference as if you were using Google Reader, then TwitteReader might be for you. This web app is basically a Google Reader clone, except instead of managing general RSS feeds, it manages your Twitter account. When you type in your username and password, you'll see a list of the latest tweets from th...

FeedDemon to add Google Reader synchronization

The developer behind the popular FeedDemon RSS reader for Windows has dropped a hint that the next version of the program will support synchronization with Google Reader.

Greasemonkey script goes minimalist on Google Reader

Sure, it's only been a few days since Google rolled out the new look for Reader, but maybe you don't think the collapsible boxes go far enough. Fans of an even more minimalist interface can grab the Greasemonkey script created by Userscripts contributor DemianGod. It does away with all clutter left behind by your minimized all items and shared items blocks, as well as the add subscription button...

Google Reader gets a new look

A few weeks ago Google updated Gmail to allow users to choose colorful themes for their email service. The move left some of us wondering when Google Reader was going to get a similar facelift. Apparently today is the day, but the change isn't exactly what I had expected. Google has rolled out a new look for its RSS reader. There's a lot more white space, and a lot less blue. But there's no way...

Google adds instant translation to Google Reader

Google Reader, Bloglines and other RSS readers make it easy to keep on top of the latest news from dozens, or even hundreds of web pages without actually visiting those pages. But if you want to read a web site that constantly covers news you're interested in, and just happens to be in a language you don't speak, in the past you've needed to exit your RSS reader and load the page in Google Trans...

GMDesk: Desktop client for Gmail, Google Docs, Google Reader, etc

Some of the applications I use most often aren't desktop apps, they're web apps that I access through a web browser. Gmail, Google Reader, and Google Docs, for example. GMDesk is an Adobe AIR-based client for these and other Google-based services. It's based on the idea that you shouldn't have to fire up a web browser just to check your email. The concept is sound, but the execution leaves a bit...

At first glance, the latest version of RSS Bandit looks just like pretty much every other desktop RSS reader for Windows. In other words, it looks like Outlook. But this week saw the released of RSS Bandit 1.7 Alpha with one killer new feature: support for synchronization with your Google Reader or NewsGator feeds. Here's how it works. You download and install the open source application, and t...

Feedly - a Firefox start page on steroids

It's been a while since we've seen a compelling new browser start page. There was a real flurry of start pages a year or two ago when the likes of Google Personalized Start Page (now iGoogle), NetVibes, Pageflakes, and a myriad of other copycat sites launched. Strangely, even with such an amazing variety of start pages to choose from, we've never found any of them to be particularly compelling. T...
