The sun has definitely set on Google Reader for good. Yet there is a substitute in the form of a brand new Digg Reader rolled out for web yesterday. It ensued on beta and now is also available today on mobile devices. The Digg iOS app has worked wonders. Already there was great competition between rivals over the vacuum left behind by Google Reader. All sorts of RSS freaks wanted their slice of the pie according to the iTunes Preview. Digg’s struggle to dominate the market paid off in the end. It is certainly worth looking into for those interested in the deal. The Digg Reader is not just a changed version of Google Reader. It is much more than that.
RSS Feed capabilities are being integrated into the structure of Digg’s new venture. Therefore Digg has an advantage in this whole situation. It can start beforehand and win the race against time. The goal is to provide services to Google Reader castaways and RSS addicts. A prompt delivery of Google Reader feeds on mobile devices is the most prominent feature of the venerable service. Digg has definitely made some big promises. It is a little early to say what the outcome will be. But the fans are keeping their hopes high. Digg began its existence as a collective bookmarking site. Besides Digg, Feedly, AOL and NetN ewsWire are just some of the others on the scene.
According to TechCrunch, The Digg Reader is open for anyone on the Web. It has also been upgraded to the 5.0 version. This is a good thing since now it can be available on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Digg allows all your previous Google Reader stuff to be transferred to the new replacement site. You can log on to Digg Reader and peruse the latest articles.
Digg 5.0 is available free of cost at the App Store. The basic goal of Digg is to introduce a lucid, superfast reading experience that is clutter-free. A host of services and features will be built into the system pretty soon. Digg has also started caring about the opinions of its users. This way the road to progress has been smoothed. The Google Reader has become obsolete and defunct with the passage of time. That was the reason behind scrapping it and allowing other more worthy players to take over. Digg happens to be the biggest and boldest one.
