Due to my frustration with Google Reader these past several days, I’ve decided to use an offline feed reader. After browsing and reading the several blogs on recommended offline readers, I decided to download FeedDemon.
I haven’t gone into its nooks and cranies, but so far I find it to be a decent reader and have just enough options to get me back into feed reading. I like the fact that it looks very uncluttered, can be synchronized with NewsGator, and has a simple registration process. Too bad it can only import subscription settings from a limited amount of blog feed readers like BlogLines.
I still plan on using Google Reader though, as one thing I’m not fond of with offline feed readers are resource-hungry and not very portable, something that FeedDemon claims it isn’t. I’ll give both of these readers a compare before I decide to stick to just one.
