The Reader, part 5

It is 5, right? My God, I’ve been doing this for a solid month? It might be time to start wrapping this up… 

Anyway, the readers I’ve focused on for the past four entries I’ve spent time using, but there are also quite a few that I dismissed right away as not workable for whatever reason. So here’s the rundown on some of the other aggregators out there.

---“Due to overwhelming demand, free accounts are now suspended.” That’s adorable. They actually think people are going to pay for a freaking aggregator (it did look nice from what I saw in the free sample, though).

---Since it’s run by Net Vibes, it’s basically a clone of their system. So it’s good to use if for some reason you don’t like the name Net Vibes.

---Made for following news stories in topics like science or even comics, but not really for personal blogs. Also, I hate the name.

---Got rave reviews…then completely shut down.

---I couldn’t actually get it to work. Not very sophisticated from what I saw.

---Have to resubscribe to every single feed I want to follow. No thanks.

---For Apple products only, so I can’t use it.

---A downloadable program you use. Not really what I’m looking for.

---The site is broken so I can’t really review it. Honestly, with a tagline like “yet another feed reader”, I wouldn’t expect much.

---Another download. Pass.

---Yet another download. However, this is supposed to be one of the best, so if you’re willing to try it, I’d expect it to be good.


  1. These things always disappoint. They promise so much...

  2. I take it you're sticking with Feedly, then?

  3. Good Noows would start to annoy me as a reader title about three seconds into using it.


Please validate me.
