On Switching to Google Reader

google_logo.jpg

I have been using NewsGator for about a year. It syncs with NetNewsWire and it has an excellent iPhone application. About a month ago I started using Google Reader to figure it out if I was missing out on anything. After a month, I’m sticking with Google Reader.

There are a few reasons for this decision. As nice as NetNewsWire is, I wasn’t really using its additional features. Having a native news reading application really wasn’t making that much of a difference for me. Furthermore, the NewsGator iPhone interface doesn’t allow you to go back and read “clipped” articles unless you leave them “unread” which then makes you reader list cluttery.

Google Reader solves these problems and works well with the way I do things. I usually find myself going through and tagging articles on my iPhone and actually reading interesting ones on my Mac. What is your favorite reader?

    I am completely beholden to Google Reader. I use the Camino browser instead of Safari because of the way Google Reader functions in Camino (faster, can zoom in on pages, and always opens in new tabs, and some others).

    I’m with you on Google Reader — though some of the RSS applications are slick and have a nice UI, Google does the trick for me. I can access my feeds from anywhere (including my iPhone with a nice interface).

    And I like the new Sharing feature where you can share and see shared items from folks in your address book.

    I second your post, too. I used Opera’s integrated feed reader until a few weeks ago and then switched – mainly because I wanted to access my feeds from anywhere and liked the nice extra features (such as sharing).

    I am using the reader in Apple Mail since the Leopard update. I find it useful to have all my mail (my Gmail accounts are in my mail via IMAP) and my RSS feeds in one interface.
