I’m loving the beta of Readwise’s Reader app so far. I’m pretty sure I will be moving to it from Pocket and shutting down Read Ruler, my web app for Pocket, soon. Next up: to decide if I should also move all of my RSS feed reading from Reeder to Reader. (Naming things is hard.)
@ericmwalk Interesting. I do have all my feeds in categories, but I also generally read through them firehose style anyway so that may not be the biggest issue for me. The main advantage I can imagine for me is going from RSS to “Read It Later” will be easier if they are both in Readwise.
@holborne There are so many ways it’s hard to just list a few! Cleaner/more modern UI, full keyboard navigation, customizable views for article lists, better support for non-articles like videos, books and PDFs…and so much more. Their public beta announcement post is comprehensive and long!https://blog.readwise.io/the-next-chapter-of-reader-public-beta/I also already pay for Readwise so having this fully integrated into my highlighting workflow is perfect for me.

@chrispederick I agree with that last point and working through my own issues on the first 😁. It has been nice to triage my feeds in to quickly read, save for later, or just mark as “seen” and move on.
@chrispederick I currently good or bad put all of my RSS feeds in there. I really like the idea but it is a little clunky right now navigating as it doesn’t pull in Categories or Groups so I just have a firehose of information in the RSS feed. However, I do like how that is different than the “Read It Later” portion.
