Digg Reader is a free online RSS reader and a free Google Reader alternative which even allows you to import your saved Google Reader RSS feed subscriptions in the form of a OPML file. If you’re interested in building up your subscriptions from scratch you can do that too by copy-pasting RSS feed addresses of the blogs and websites from where you’d like to be kept up to date about new posts and updates.
Digg Reader looks pretty much like every other online RSS feed reader, but in order to use it, you’re gonna have to login with either Facebook, Twitter or Google+. Left sidebar holds categories where you can switch between updates from all the RSS feeds that you’re keeping track of, those that are popular with other Digg users, your own “diggs”, saved RSS updates and then individual RSS feed subscriptions all the way down below.
We’ve already added the ILoveFreeSoftware feed and on the right you can see the RSS feed updates posted from the selected category on the left. They’re listed according to time that they were posted, newest at the top of course.
Key features of Digg Reader are:
- Web based: keep track of RSS updates from websites inside a browser
- Simple registration using either Facebook, Twitter or Google+
- Google Reader support: simply import subscriptions via OPML files
- Social networks: post RSS feeds directly to connected social networks
- Categories: browse popular, saved, digged or individual RSS feeds
- Keyboard control: allows you to control the interface with keyboard
Google Reader has recently closed its doors. This has left a lot of people looking for an alternative. If you are looking for a Google Reader alternative, then Digg Reader just might be the thing that you’re looking for.
