Selection of applications to read RSS-news

Alexander Shcherbakov

My job requires continuous tracking news, for that I have a list of 50 sources and service Mediametriks in which displays the most popular at present materials on the Internet. But to see all the sites manually long and uncomfortable, so I prefer a program for RSS-subscriptions.

Read news via RSS format is gradually losing popularity. Because of this, Google Reader is still closed in 2013, and new applications for the RSS appears smaller. Although I have not found so far still have to replace themselves in such services. Applications like Flipboard or «Google News, which themselves form your news feed on smart algorithms almost always offer dubious sources and do not allow in a convenient format to track multiple sources at once. And often, these applications have a limited catalog subscriptions.

That’s why I want to talk about this more convenient way to read news and articles than browsing sites. Services for RSS-subscriptions allow to filter information and sources, as opposed to a news aggregator, which themselves are selected texts for reading.

I chose three free applications for RSS. But there is a problem – the application is very similar, so I will not tell, that here you can select sources, but here – a news feed from your subscriptions, and pay attention to differences of applications from other


Now I use this service to collect RSS materials. This is not just a news reader application is a processor for tracking infopovodov with flexible settings and filters automatically search for the right.

The service has so-called rules that allow you to automate some processes. For example, you can set up notifications on the appearance of news, in which the title has «iPhone 8. You can also choose to send the necessary materials directly to the post office or, conversely, to automatically hide the texts uninteresting topics for you. So it’s a great tool for working with the news.

However, it soon will Inoreader simple application for news. Now users the free version can create only one rule. But on the first of August they change pricing and create rules will be available only by subscription. And the work of these features only in the web version of the service. So that the mobile app is much simpler functions.

Even without the paid features Inoreader remains cool app for reading news. There are tons of tape format settings, fonts, and other necessary and unnecessary features. Plus the mobile app has no ads, it is only in the web version.

This service is considered to be a kind of standard for RSS-feeds . Many other applications support transfer of subscriptions because of Feedly. And its popularity is understandable – the app is very simple and clear, supported by many gestures. I have read the news – pulled up and the lower edge of it is closed. Do not like the text – scroll with the right to the left and go to the next news

I like how the application formats the material under the format.. Images are adjusted precisely by the width of the display, layout is not dancing work embedy from social networks and services. Read a pleasure

Feedly «friendly» with a variety of services,. Pocket, Instapaper, Evernote, OneNote. They are used for deferred reading articles. To add a material to read later only need to hold down your finger on the card with the news and it will automatically be added to your favorite service.

If you go to the settings and there you can find more options for gesture or algorithms application behavior and appearance settings. Only there is one thing – the application does not English language interface. So we’ll have to put up with English. But in the application there is no advertising.

The application allows you to combine reading news via RSS listening to podcasts. True, compared to other players podcasts, Read has fewer functions, only enable, disable, and rewind. But I, for example, nothing more is needed from the podcast

Also Read copes with its main task -. Newsreader. Materials adapted to the format of the application, cut off all the excess (banners, advertisements and other elements of the design of the site) and only the text and images. If you need to open the original source of the news – in the bottom of the page there is a big button

I like Read for simplicity, there is a set of functions in Inoreader or Feedly, but also those that have enough.. English interface there is no language. Advertising, too, no, I do not even know how developers monetize the project.

To summarize

Inoreader suitable if you want the most meticulous approach to news search or if it’s your job. For this application, there is a bunch of settings, application behavior and process automation. Feddly suitable for a simple news reader with flexible configuration interface and gestures. A Read for news and listen to podcasts.

I recommend to try each application and choose the right for themselves, they are free. Also tell me in the comments on their way to reading the news.
