NewsBlur Comments

Pretty nice and functional application

Comment by zyndarius
about NewsBlur Sep 2013

It is a pretty nice and functional application. The fact I loved the most is that it is web based.


Doesn't run well

Negative Comment by fragnemesis
about NewsBlur Jul 2013

My main problem my main problem with this app is that it just doesn't run well. I haven't had this issue with many of the alternatives that I've tried. Perhaps it's simply doing too much.


Best alternative to Google Reader

about NewsBlur and Google Reader Jul 2013

It's not free, but it's still awesome.
Definitely worth a try.

Allows you to rate posts

about NewsBlur and Google Reader Aug 2011

This is something I've always wished Google Reader could do. You can "Like" posts but can't "Dislike" them. I'd like to have a way to filter out things that I like or dislike from feeds that have some of both.
