I get mildly annoyed when using applications that are hosted on the web. For example, I’ll use web mail if I have to, but I’d much rather use Apple Mail or Thunderbird… Anyway, I’ve been using Google Reader for the past year or so with some satisfaction, but then my browser crashed and for some reason, all of my feeds are telling me I’ve read everything…
Anyhoo, I’ve found an answer, and I think it’s rather good. It’s called Gruml. It basically replicates Google Reader functionality using a local app. It’s in beta at the moment and it does feel quite “beta-ish”, but I’m hoping for a Mail type solution where I can view my old feeds and entries offline if I want to.
Gruml has some nice features that should be really good when it matures:
Post articles to Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Bebo and more
With the help of another blogging app (like MarsEdit) post articles to your blog
Organise articles into folders
