Chrome may be getting a Google Reader-like feature

Chrome may be getting a Google Reader-like feature

Chrome is the most popular mobile browser around the world and millions use it on a daily basis to browse the web and stay up-to-date with the latest information. It already integrates Google's discover feed on the New tab page, which shows articles on topics that you've expressed interest in. In what seems to be a better way to recommend stories and aid content discovery, Google is testing a new "Follow" button in its Chrome Canary build.

gReader gets its first update in four years, but maybe it shouldn't have

gReader gets its first update in four years, but maybe it shouldn't have

Once-popular RSS aggregator gReader just got its first update in almost four years. The new v5 release claims improved support for video and podcast playback, dark mode support in article view, and some miscellaneous bug fixes. We've also spotted Inoreader support. But unfortunately, reports also claim the app's ads are especially obnoxious now, and the ad-free "Pro" version of the app many customers purchased years ago is still missing from the Play Store.

You can now add custom RSS feeds to Google Podcasts

You can now add custom RSS feeds to Google Podcasts

When Google first released its own Podcasts app back in 2018, it was a pretty bare-bones affair. Since then, however, the company has continued to iterate and add improvements, and the app managed to surpass 50 million downloads this month. The latest update enables something that power users have been asking for since day one: the ability to add podcasts via custom RSS feeds.

The best curated news apps for Android smartphones

The best curated news apps for Android smartphones

Reading the news is probably the last thing you want to do right now while the world is shrouded in doom and gloom. But at least there are many reading apps based on algorithms, so you can manually instruct them whether or not to deliver the headlines on the end times as it's happening.

Feedly introduces Mute Filters, a tool to automatically and selectively remove items from your feeds

Feedly introduces Mute Filters, a tool to automatically and selectively remove items from your feeds

Feedly, the popular RSS feed aggregator, has just introduced a new feature for Feedly Pro users called Mute Filters. Now you can set up a list of keywords, combined with some operators, to selectively filter your feeds. If seeing news on subjects like fidget spinners or Pokemon GO has been slowly driving you mad, you now have recourse.

If you are into following blogs or news outlets via RSS feeds, there aren't a lot of choices out there. Feedly has become one of the biggest names in the wake of the still-lamented death of Google Reader. Any user of Feedly or RSS feeds has likely spent a lot of time curating their list already, so another avenue of customization for the news you see is bound to be a good thing.

Quote, From The Developer Of Fenix, Is A Slick News Reader For Feedly And Inoreader

I've made Fenix my go-to Twitter client for a rather long time, and I'm not alone in that. That's the only app developer mvilla has released... until now. The second app from this dev is a feed reader with support for both Feedly and Inoreader. It has a very clean, minimalist design, and you can give it a shot for free.

Feedly Rolling Out v27 With Google Now Integration, Power Search, And Better Auto-Complete [APK Download]

There's a new version of Feedly out there, but it looks like a staged rollout (currently a beta channel release). Normally that wouldn't be a huge deal, because it's just a feed reader. However, there's some cool stuff in the v27 update. This one adds Google Now integration, and we've got the APK below.

Taptu News Reader Service Shutting Down, Developers Recommend Feedly As A Replacement

Taptu News Reader Service Shutting Down, Developers Recommend Feedly As A Replacement

Do you use Taptu to read news and entertainment stories? Statistically speaking, the answer is no - we haven't even written a single story on the aggregator in over four years. Taptu is, or more accurately was, a sort of curated platform that pulled news and other stories from both a user's own social networks and a series of pre-made topical feeds. According to messages being sent to users of the app, the entire service will shut down tomorrow, March 31st.

The Play Store and iOS App Store pages for Taptu's mobile apps are now empty, though you may be able to access the Play Store's if you've installed Taptu previously.

Palabre Is A New RSS Reader With A Simple, Material Design And Feedly Compatibility

Palabre Is A New RSS Reader With A Simple, Material Design And Feedly Compatibility

Need a new RSS reader? Do you just want one that conforms to Material Design guidelines? Palabre might be for you. This simple, new app is fairly straightforward. You have a pretty interface with a little customizability and Feedly integration so that you don't have to rebuild your RSS lists.

Overall, things look good enough that I'm going to forgive that mustard yellow hamburger menu. That shade looks nice and unique as an accent color throughout the rest of the interface, but it's a little too big of a dose there. Palabre isn't reinventing the wheel here, so don't look for any groundbreaking features - at least not yet.
