I mean something like that (http://www.google.com/reader/i):

enter image description here

What I've tried:

  • Feedly - no mobile web version

  • NewsBlur - paid for more than 12 feeds (I have more)

  • Netvibes - mobile version not usable in Opera Mobile on Android (wap version isn't counted)

  • Pulse - don't know even how to import rss from Google Reader there o_O Finally managed to import, but this doesn't look like to be a reader for something more serious than 9gag because of "tiles" view

  • TinyRss - own hosting needed

  • Fever - paid, own hosting needed (?)

  • Bloglines = Netvies

  • Feedshow - no mobile web version

  • NewsAlloy - no ability to import feeds from Google Reader?

  • Daily Rotation - something strange...

  • My Yahoo - no import from Google Reader

  • Bazqux - paid, no mobile web version

  • Feederator - no import from Google Reader

  • Goodnoows - no mobile web version

  • PublicRSS - no mobile web version

  • FeedBooster - not managed to login from mobile device o_O

  • 1kpl.us - no mobile web version

  • ContentGems - paid, no mobile web version

  • Alesti - no mobile web version

  • Kedoya - no mobile web version

  • AOL Reader - mobile web version is not usable in Opera mobile for Android

  • Digg Reader - no mobile web version

to be continued ...

  • Is there really nothing in Alternatives for Google Reader (with Android synchronizing) that fits the bill? Jun 20, 2013 at 18:14
  • @batpigandme I hope that somebody have already researched it. But it seems that I have to do it by myself, so I'll edit my question to tell what I've tried.

  • Always helpful to know what you've tried! Jun 20, 2013 at 19:36
  • There is an Android app for Feedly. There's also FeedMe, which recently acquired Feedly integration.

I recently discovered Pulse.

enter image description here

It's good looking and easy to use. Plus, if you sign up with your Google account, you get all your RSS feeds integrated automatically - just scroll down the page to where it says "Import Your Google Feeder Reads".

  • Tried it on PC - it seems that there is even no ability to import rss from Google Reader o_O (it suggested to sign up only with facebook or as new user)

  • If you scroll down the home page, the first item is "Import Your Google Reader Feeds". It's pretty straightforward from there. Jun 20, 2013 at 19:35
  • @LincolnBergeson maybe integrate your comment into the answer for posterity? Jun 20, 2013 at 19:37
  • @LincolnBergeson Ah, this option wasn't able for registered user >< Finally, I've imported feeds, but Pulse really looks like "9gag reader", I don't see a way to read my 40+ feeds structurized.

  • @janot Yeah, I haven't used it enough to help you organize your feeds, but a little googling will probably help you. Also, remember to select my answer if it solved your problem. It helps both our repuutations. Jun 20, 2013 at 19:45

You say:

Feedly - no mobile version

However, Feedly has native Apps for iOS and Android. Plus, you may configure the user interface to be very similar to the old Reader.

  • sorry, I meant "no mobile web version"

Feedly is evolving a lot lately and now has a web version (cloud.feedly.com) and has an open API, which allows a lot of other apps to use Feedly as feeds provider. On Android, I use gReader which is much better than the Feedly mobile app.

The only major drawback I find is the lack of an export feature but they said it will be added in the next version.


AOL Reader — in beta at the moment

And there will be Digg Reader as well.

  • AOL: "You're on the beta list. We've reached full capacity. We will send you a link to verify you email to the address you provided us as soon as we can. Follow that link and we'll put you on the beta access list."

Protopage was one of the first online feed readers, and obviously still continues to offer features none of the others do.

  • What features? An answer should not completely rely on an external link.

  • Oh right, I listed the site as an answer to the question, i.e., it is a news feeder with a mobile site as opposed to a mobile application. To list all of the features on the mobile site would take some time; I don't think it has unread counts on the mobile view, but it does have very good facilities for structuring feeds.

  • Obviously I will have missed some features here; like I said, I was answering the title question.

  • Looks great, really. About unread counts - at least it shows what's unread and what's not. But I have problem with importing *.opml from feedly to protopage =/ Maybe you know, what's the problem? It tells, that I upload not valid *.opml file.

  • Just looks great, but in fact is impossible to use, when you have a lot of feeds (all of them will be displayed)

Feedly started to work ok, finally

enter image description here

  • I get redirected to the "Get Feedly For Android" page at www.feedly.com.

Try skimr, it has a very good mobile web interface (basically the same as the non-mobile web interface but scaled down). My only problem with it is that there are no unread item counters. Good for casual reading though.

  • yeah, looks rather good but no unread items counter =/
