Back in May 2010 I wrote a post about how I struggle to keep up with the various blogs I find interesting to read. It was called Interesting Blogs, Podcasts, and Other Stuff. You can read it here.
I said back then that I had tried to use an RSS (really simple syndication) reader and found that I never went to it in my browser, so that was no solution. Instead, I subscribed to the blog feeds via direct email. While I missed nothing, my email was soon clogged to an unacceptable level.
We’ll an RSS reader in my smart phone is now the solution for me. The blogs are easy to access when I have spare time. The reader is on the top screen in my phone -see the image to the left. It presents the stories nicely categorized by blog and then as headlines in blogs. So I can scan the stories, read those I want and with one click mark all the others as read and voila they disappear.
I have an iPhone and I use MobileRSS, available in the iTunes App Store for free with ads, and $2.99 for the ad free version.
Now I have to take the time and delete all the email subscriptions I signed up for when I thought that was the solution (:
