Update: Feedlinx will now allow you to "hide" read items. This means that you will not see the "::R::" posts when you move from reader to reader and GreatNews will work as it should. Thanks for the suggestion and be sure to let me know if you run into any issues. To select the new feature, login to Feedlinx and click the checkbox labeled: Hide "read" items from my feed readers.

[...] Why isn”t there something out there like mindmapping for READING? Specifically why isn’t there something out there for reading RSS feeds - in a new and more powerful manner? Maybe not mindmapping, but please stop developing the same product over and over again. The ‘river of news’ and categorized reader layouts are taken! A feed reader that could help us immensly by eliminating the hurdle of initially establishing an intrinsically appropriate or relevant conceptual framework to work within would be groundbreaking! Somethig that could capture, structure, and shuffle information at our fingertips. There are not very many innovative RSS readers out there. Bloglines,Google, Newsgator, Flock, Thunderbird, GreatNews, FeedDemon, Netvibes, and all the rest areall the same. The best new innovator on the scene is newshutch a web-based RSS aggregator. However, newshutch isn”t really innovating when it comes to actually reading the feed. [...]

Hey, thanks for the review of GreatNews! My first dabble with high-powered RSS readers was Onfolio - GreatNews sounds terrific, but have you tried ? It sounds like bloglines has a lot of the features you describe with GreatNews (like clipping/storing of articles), but the great thing about Bloglines is that it's fully online-based, meaning you don't have to install any software, and you can access your feeds from any computer that has internet access. In any case, i'll be quoting your article soon - i was thinking of writing about RSS readers for classical musicians who may not be familiar with them, and your insights are really helpful here. Thanks again!

Sorry to hear that you (unlinked? delinked?) Feedlinx. :) At least I discovered your great blog in the process. Seriously, I really appreciate your feedback. How can we make improvements without criticism? In the next few days I will implement the option to hide read posts from the feed. GreatNews will still have its copy and it won't be updated by Feedlinx. I already have this working, but I want to release it with the other new features. I'm going to add link options at the bottom of each post for "email this" and "add to" using the original links. I'm wondering if the "add to" would address your "tag for later" issue. If you can think of any other useful links, shoot me an email at
