If you get your news from the internet like ten bajillion other Americans these days, you might be wondering how to manage it all.
I get my daily dose of the latest happenings from a variety of sources on the web, usually via RSS (what is RSS?).
I used to view all my news with Google Reader, but that was before the iPad.
If you don’t have an iPad or iPhone, this may not be the most useful article for you, but it may provide you with a good excuse for getting one.
Reeder to the rescue
Reeder is a marvelous app I use every day. It basically takes the Google Reader news data and gives you a prettier and more user-friendly way to view all things coming in. By putting this app on the iPad, you now have a mobile way to get your news and read it easily without having to either be tethered to a computer or manage piles of newspapers that end up creating more waste.
Sharing Is Caring
If you’re at all familiar with Google Reader, you’ll know that you can do a lot with your incoming news. You can save your articles, mark them to be read later, you can keep them unread. Reeder offers you all these features and more, you also have access to some great ways to share interesting items to friends or coworkers who might share your interests.
With a few quick taps, you can send any article to Twitter, you can email all or part of the article, or you can share it via your own RSS feed on Google Reader for other people to access.
I may sound like I’m selling this app, but I’m not. (Sadly there are no iTunes app affiliate programs that I know of, yet.) I just love this app and wanted to be able to be able to point people to my explanation without having to repeat myself endlessly when I gush on about how much I love Reeder. Did I mention I love Reeder?
Visit the Reeder site to view more information about it, then go buy it!
If you haven’t purchased an iPad yet, I highly recommend that too, but that’s another article for another day.
