In the transition from Google Reader (which happens Monday, FYI), I’ve been looking for a great alternative I can replace my RSS reading habits with. I wasn’t pleased with any of the free options that I saw — most of their designs didn’t appeal to me, and I wasn’t interested in supporting another service that could go away without a solid financial plan.

At that point, I ended up looking for my paid options and settled on Feed Wrangler. It’s developed by David Smith, a trusted developer in the Apple community. The service itself is $19 per year, but the app is free. And now that I’ve been using the app (and service) for a few weeks, what do I think of it? Read on to find out. (more…)

I am always trying to stay in the know when it comes to technology. I just love reading about it everyday and seeing what is up and coming. This is where something like Google Reader comes in very handy. I can pull in all the news stories from all the different websites I read and have it all in one place. Definitely a great way to get your news if you get it from many different sources.

But this review isn’t about Google Reader, but an application that is very similar to it and yet offers a ton more features — Reeder for the iPhone. For those of you that don’t know, Reeder has been around for a couple of years now and I have used it on the iPhone for a long time. It’s a great app to use to browse the news and save for later reading when you are on a bigger screen.

We all have a favourite News source. One that appeals to our political sensibilities, our sense of what is important, or simply our desire for readability. The most discerning of us probably check at least one more source (even if it is The Onion) and this can be a pain, requiring you to open a variety of Apps or, heaven forbid, a site on mobile safari…

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was an App that could amalgamate all your favourite News sources and present them to you in a supremely accessible form? ‘Yes’, I hear you say, ‘but it would have to be brilliant for me to actually change the way I get my news…’

I’ve got an App you might like. It’s called Pulse News Mini.
