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


Doesn't run well

about NewsBlur · ·

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

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

Allows you to rate posts

about NewsBlur and Google Reader · ·

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.

Imported my 1000+ feeds from Google Reader to multiple alternative Reader. Compared a folder with one of my most important feeds.

Result: added/imported from this Google Reader folder
Feedly: all 21 feeds
Digg Reader: all 21 feeds
Newsblur: only 3 feeds :(

I don't know what is wrong with Newsblur. The Newsblur app is sadly also very basic. I recommend to use instead Feedly with the Newsify app (for iOS) or other Android apps that all also work with the Feedly Cloud. I'm not happy, I paid for the premium version of Newsblur and expected more. I hope they improve.
