Best RSS Reader For OSX: ReadKit
Whether you write science fiction, horror, mysteries or, really… anything, one of the best places to find inspiration is in the news.
But when it comes to getting the news, fewer and fewer people trust the mainstream media these days. As a consequence of that, more and more people — this is just a guess on my part, but it seems like a solidly reasonable one — are turning to web sites and blogs.
At the same time, many people are turning to RSS as a tool to gather together news on the stories that interest them.
This brings us to RSS software. While Windows 8 users enjoy a built-in RSS solution, OSX users no longer do. Until that changes, third party software is the way to go.
And it’s my opinion that I’ve found the best one available.
At $4.99 through the Mac App Store, it isn’t free — but I don’t begrudge the developers that. Developers gotta eat, and what you get for that $4.99 is worth every penny.
ReadKit aggregates not only web feeds, either on its own or by connecting to aggregation services like Feedly, Fever, NewsBlur or Freed Wrangler, it also brings together the most popular Read-It-Later services, such as Pocket, Instapaper and Readability. As if that wasn’t enough, it also brings services like Pinboard and delicious into the fold.
In short: Whatever you might want to read online, ReadKit brings it all together, all in one place. Give it a try; you won’t regret it.
Until next time, please remember to support this blog; do good work, and be good to yourselves and each other.
