Tutorial Description

At the time of publication, Google Reader has only 8 days before the service is shutdown. So we'd better get on with deciding on an alternative!

The good news is there are plenty to choose from, many are as fully featured as Google Reader and some are even better!

In this companion show to the ScreenCastsOnline Mac show - SCOM0405 - I take a look at some of the services that work with Mr Reader on the iPad, as well as taking a look at the Feedly iPad and iPhone apps.

Mr Reader v2 for the iPad is out in the next few days and is my preferred solution for consuming RSS feeds on my iPad. Previously, it was only supported by Google Reader, but the new version has been expanded to support six different alternative services. You can see the Mac and web based versions of these services in the ScreenCastsOnline Mac show - SCOM0405.

Of course, most of these services don't require Mr Reader and are supported by various third party clients or have their own native clients. I just prefer Mr Reader as my RSS reader on the iPad - for now at least!

This full tutorial includes sections on:

  • Mr Reader V2
  • Using FeedBin with Mr Reader
  • Using BazQux with Mr Reader
  • Using Feedly with Mr Reader
  • Feedly iPad App
  • Feedly iPhone App

Don - what was not said clearly in the show was how do existing users access the new Accounts panel. It appears that you have to completely delete Mr. Reader from the iPad and then re-add it, resetting up all of your preferences.
