Smartphone Apps that Save Time: Google Reader
Do you read a lot of blogs? I know I do. There are currently over 100 blogs that I follow on various subjects including technology, entrepreneurship, apps, gadgets, etc. Can you imagine if I had to check each of these sites every day or every week?
Instead of checking those websites manually, I have them go to an RSS Reader. An RSS Reader is a tool that allows you to get new updates from all of those websites in one location. I use Google Reader as my RSS Reader. It is a web-based tool that you get for free as part of your Gmail account.
During your wait times or while commuting, checking your Google Reader is a great way to stay on top of news, trends in your industry or even your favorite fashion blogs. On your smartphone, you can head to the Google Reader’s mobile site: m.google.com/reader
Or, there’s an app for that…
If you have an Android phone, you can install the Google Reader app. For iPhone, I use Newsify. There are a tons of variations so check them out and see what works best for you.
