My ideal RSS reader

I’m struggling with my RSS reader these days, which annoys me a lot. I’m reading about 420 feeds on a daily basis and a good feedreader is key to scan all this without losing too much time. I’ve written about GreatNews more than once and found it the best reader out there… but it crashed since the latest update.

This forced me somehow in testing other readers again and I finally tried the RSS feature in Outlook 2007, FeedDemon, Google Reader, … but neither of them really have what I need. My ideal RSS reader would be something like a combination from GreatNews with Google Reader, both synced with the IE7 RSS feedstore and with direct links to your Digg, Delicious, … accounts if you please. I don’t use the webbased reader a lot, but it’s mainly the mobile features of the Google Reader I’m interested in.

So send me an email when this exists :-)

    Why don’t you try Bloglines? It’ s my favourite. And thx to Squeezer you can read it in a user friendly way on your windows mobile. I’m not sure about links to digg, delicious,…

    Yeah I tried Bloglines, and I think it’s the best webbased reader for the moment. For me the offline reader (application) is the most important though, the sync with an online reader is the second wish :-)

  3. A while ago I posted a long story about what features a good rss feed reader should have. Take a look.

    Check out BlogBridge weekly. Seriously!

    Check the smart feed features. They i.e. offer direct links to users and tags.

    You’ve already got the answer: BlogBridge. Your struggling with RSS readers and the huge amount of feeds sounds very familiar. I’ve tried them all, from Bloglines to Netvibes. With BlogBridge I’m very satisfied for several months now. I like the smartfeeds, the performance and the usability. Take a look at it, I would say.

  6. Kris Hoet says:

    Thanks for helping me out ;-) I did a follow up post recently in which I think I found a solution already. I will still try out Blogbridge, you got me curious now.

    Blogbridge is really good, but to me the most important feature is that I can keep my reading at home and at work synchronized.
