RSS client for various webservices Source


FeedReader is a program designed to complement an already existing web-based RSS reader account.

Currently supported services:

  • Feedbin
  • Feedly
  • FreshRSS
  • InoReader
  • Local RSS
  • Nextcloud/ownCloud
  • The Old Reader
  • Tiny Tiny RSS

It combines all the advantages of web based services like syncing across all your devices with everything you expect from a modern desktop program: Desktop notifications, fast search and filtering, tagging, sharing to "read-it-later" services like Pocket and Instapaper, handy keyboard shortcuts and a database that keeps all your old articles as long as you like.

FeedReader also allows you to save articles to read-it-later with the supported services for now:

  • Instapaper
  • Pocket
  • Wallabag

It also let you share any article with your friends using:

  • Email
  • Twitter
  • Telegram
