Playing around with Google Reader and GreatNews, I missed Bloglines mobile. They have finally fixed the problems I mentioned last year.
Bloglines Mobile has several neat features:
- It is automatically used if you connect with a Pocket PC. No need to remember a special url, just go to www.bloglines.com
- Light weight pages for fast browsing
The frames used in the full version has been discarded in favor of a simple indented list of “My Feeds“.
Click a feed to get the details full screen:
I have never been so up to date with my blog roll. A spare minute is all I need to check a few feeds with the Pocket PC.
But, as always, I have some suggested improvements to make a great service even better :-)
- It would be great to have a "Next unread feed" link at the end of the feed page. At the moment I have to go back to the list, scroll down to where I was and click the next feed manually.
- The “Return to subscriptions“ link in the feed page returns to the first feed. It would be a lot better if it returned to the current feed so I don't have to scroll down and find it myself.
Is there a way to limit the blog entries per page?ReplyDelete
Some of my blogs I read get big fast (digg for example) and my portable (Sidekick II) can take a while to render the page when there are a lot of entries.
And I agree, this is rad cool for portable devices and blog scanning...
