MobileRSS

about Feedspot · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

I'm actually looking for a good IOS iphone/ipad mobile reader to replace the MobileRSS app which is now dead since Google Reader closed it doors. MobileRSS was simple and clean with just the right touches and features. So far I have not found anything like it. If feedspot's app can be exactly like MobileRSS but linking to Feedspot instead of Google Reader, that would be ideal for me. Thanks for building Feedspot.

Performance

about Feedspot · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

Speed is pretty Good. I like the way you made it responsive. Perhaps it could be better by pre-loading some articles below the field-of-view as I scroll? It seems like it waits until I hit the end, and then loads more articles. Feedspot is far better app than other replacements i've tried so far.

Suggestions

Feedspot is pretty good. I would suggest getting rid of the "divider lines" and boxes in the UI entirely. They just add to the visual noise and you already have appropriate white space to create a visual hierarchy. Follow Feedly's lead here. Your's is a perfect RSS reader. Good Job.

Speed

about Feedspot · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Thanks for trying to build a good feed reader. My biggest issue is the speed of loading items. I have to review 1000+ feed posts a day, and Feedspot seems to freeze after 10-15 posts and I have to wait for several seconds for more posts to load. The perfect scenario would be if it can perform as a never-ending stream with no waits, Google Reader was almost like that

My Replacement

I like its clean-cut looks, that it works like a charm and your eagerness to make it happen. I'm neither on Facebook nor Twitter but I'll make sure to spread the word about Feedspot to all the people I know!

This is my replacement

about Feedspot · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I would like Feedspot to be a replacement for Google Reader (I assume you have been told that many times xD). I would like it to be fast, light and easy. My computer is a little bit old, so lightness is a very good asset.
I don't mind about sharing and social stuff, I only use Feedspot to read my feeds.

Feedspot, Old Reader, Feedly

about Feedspot · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Feedspot is useful!

When GG Reader shut down, I first tried Feedly but I was disapointed : too different, too mucj options, I had the feeling that customization was not kept and was complicated, the android app didn't work properly, etc. Then I tried The Old Reader and was quite happy with it : same shortcuts as GG, very simple interface... but big tech problems and they are now about to shut down too.

So far, Feedspot works best for me.

So far Feedspot is my replacement for Google Reader

about Feedspot and NewsBlur, Feedly, Google Reader · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I was a heavy Google Reader user, used it every day, had a few hundred feeds, a few hundred new posts every day.
I had tried other feed clients before: none were as simple and easy as Google Reader (GR).
I started using feedly a couple of months ago while finding a replacement for GR. I must say Feedly did a great job in improving their product in the last 2 months.
I also tried Digg Reader, but I really disliked it, it was buggy and it wasn't built from scratch to be a pure feed reader, but instead to be an entrance door for Digg.com, which can be a bit misleading. I think I might try it again in a few months, but now I am sticking to Feedly.
I signed up for Feedspot because I am still not 100% happy with Feedly. Like other Google Reader clients, feedly was built to be a UI alone, and their UI is very sleek and quite pleasant to see, but I don't think it is optimized for continued usage. For instance, they have 4 different views for posts, and each folder can have a separate view, which I find a bit confusing; the fonts are fancy, but not sure again if they are appropriate for continuous usage, as well as the contrast of greys.
So far, from my 1 day usage of feedspot I must say that it feels and looks simpler, and somewhat closer to Google Reader.
If my opinion can be of any help, keep it simple; mimic as much as possible of google reader, because they got it right for years and years, and that shouldnt be underestimated; going through hundreds (or thousands) of feeds requires hours of exposure to the same UI, so double down on accessability and usability aspects: fonts, contrast, keyboard shortcuts, etc.
