I’ve written a couple times about how much I rely on my RSS feed. After the demise of Google Reader, I switched to Feed Wrangler and didn’t look back. The service is fast and consistently reliable, and I love that its open API integrates with a ton of other apps for iOS.
I’m always on the look for new RSS experiences. Turbine Reader offers exactly that: it’s designed from the ground up for iOS 7, tries to put a focus on content, and integrates with Feed Wrangler and NewsBlur (with the developer promising to work with more services soon). But is it worth displacing your favourite RSS app from your home screen? Read on to find out.
With the end of Google Reader, the playing field for RSS feeds and apps has really levelled out. I’ve been in the open market ever since. I’ve got a Feedly account and a Feed Wrangler account. I’m not extremely impressed with either at this point, and I’m considering moving over to Feedbin. But I want to use apps that integrate with my preferred solution.
On the iPhone, that’s left me with the official Feed Wrangler app, the Feedly app, Reeder and Slow Feeds. I’ve been using Reeder for well over a year now, but Silvio Rizzi has been slower and slower to update it as time has gone on. I decided to try out a new experience and I’ve been test driving Slow Feeds. If you’re curious about what a different take on RSS feed reading on the iPhone can be like, hit up my review after the break. (more…)
