10 Apps & Sites That Bring Back the Joy of Reading

(Page 8 of 11)

7. Reeder

When I compiled a review of “The 10 Social News Reader Apps You Need to Try” a couple of weeks ago, I pointedly left out Reeder, an app that lets you access your Google Reader RSS feeds on the iPhone and iPad, because it lacks the social-curation features and the magazine-style layouts that characterize the other apps I examined. But as a reading app, Reeder is still worth checking out, for two reasons. First, it has a super-clean, Instapaper-like interface. That makes it a soothing alternative to other RSS readers, which emphasize variety over order. Second, it works extremely well with Readability. You can access your Readability queue from Reeder, and it also has a one-tap button for saving articles from your RSS feeds to your Readability queue. (It takes just a couple of additional taps to save articles to Instapaper or Evernote.)

  • Joy, clarity and excitement I thank you to make me feel
    Reading deep within your verses disguised in sentences
    Trembling I can still feel the tremors and the aftershocks
    So intense yet recomforting to assure metaphoric guidance
    Testimony the Light is bright today and reflects the entrance
    Of an enchanted future opening the pathway to the existence
    Of man life on Earth the universal wonder of Love and romance
    Fortunate I will be to capture its metaphysical awe of significance
    Free of worry I am pushing away the darkest faces of Life sentences
    Hunger, thirst, loneliness only were the blur of the abusive obstinence
    But not another word about this as it time to rise again always in advance
    Aware we are all connected to a magnetic power of each other audiences
    Clearing off the air of a sweet home protected with electronic clairevoyance..
