Prior to the announcement that Google will be shutting down Google Reader I was using Feed Reader to keep up with a number of blogs. The announcement of course sent me scrambling like everyone else. The additional aspect of the problem is whether the mobile reader solution you are currently using offers more options than just Google Reader. In my case it didn’t. I ended up with Feed Me since it integrates with Newsblur. The Feed Me’s interface is definitely functional with the ability to share posts ...
While I post on a regular basis, Twitter has become my pointer to any blogs that I read. I haven’t logged into a RSS app or Google Reader in a long time. When Feed Reader was featured on a web site recently (sorry but I can’t remember which one) I decided to give it a try. It logged directly to my old Google Reader account which made getting started a breeze. That app easily shares links via Twitter or saves them to Instapaper. The wildest feature is that it will audibly read each post. I can’t say ...
I have always been a fan of Google Reader. I have been using it since it first came out and have never tried another feed reader. Yesterday they decided to update the UI to fit their new G+ look and in my opinion, made the application almost impossible to use. I have three main machines I use on a daily basis. A Dell XPS desktop with dual 24 inch monitors, a Toshiba Protégé with a 13 inch display, and a 11 inch MacBook Air. When I am at my desk all day, the Dell is awesome for getting development ...
New iPhone owners will commonly ask themselves how they can sync their Google Calendar with their iPhone calendar. Or maybe how to sync their Gmail or Google Reader items with their iPhone readers.

You want to go to the source, straight to Google, instead of going to Joe Bob Simpleton who has written some half thought out iPhone app to sync these things. So here’s what you do: Turn on your ...
Lately, I have started using Google Reader for my feeds when Outlook 2007 decided it didn't want to read my feeds anymore and I started missing valuable content. I absolutely love the interface of Google Reader, it is very fast a with the HotKeys, it feels like a desktop application. However, the add subscriptions functionality is less than desirable. Inside IE it will freeze up quite often and just sit there bubbling green goo out of the beaker. To get around this issue, I created a IE Search Provider ...
I've been using NewsGator for a while now (my post about switching to it), and it's not bad, but I discovered the mobile version of Google Reader last night. This morning I found the Homepage reader widget and that was the nail in the coffin of NewsGator. The mobile version works so slickly on my PPC6700 and I've always liked the UI of the web version. So thanks NewsGator, you've been good, but I'm all google now. Technorati tags: NewsGator, Google Reader, PPC6700 ...
