PluralApp is a website which acts as an integrated RSS reader, social media browser, and YouTube browser. It means that PluralApp is the single website which you need to open for reading RSS feeds, surfing your social profile, and watching videos on YouTube and Vimeo. The website comes with all major websites’ RSS feeds for you to read along with option for adding RSS feeds manually. It’s a really good RSS reader as it displays all articles on left side and their enlarged view on right side, with all images included.
For social media browsing, you can add Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Reddit accounts to check all latest happenings on these networks. All feeds from your social networks are divided across multiple categories which lets you easily find out any particular stuff like your profile, timeline, friends, trending topic, etc.. Apart from just RSS feed reading and social media browsing, you can also use it for some entertainment via browsing videos from YouTube and Vimeo.
