One of the apps I use ,most on my smartphone, not matter what platform I am using, is a quality Google Reader client. When i first got my BlackBerry Z10 they were few and far between, but there has been a lot more choice in BlackBerry World in the last few weeks. One of the apps that I have taken to using is the Daily. New Reader from Thalion.
The Daily provides you with an intuitive interface that puts the act of reading as the top priority. I find that many RSS apps try to “wow” the user with needless features, when all you want to do is the read the articles from your subscriptions. I did not encounter any issues with The Daily syncing up to my subscriptions in Google Reader, and that all the features I require, like “mark all read” and easy navigation between articles was there and easy to use.
A nice touch to The Daily is the ability to customize the font of the articles, which is definitely necessary for those of us that may not have perfect vision. If you are looking to delve further into the article that you are reading you can also jump over to the browser from within The Daily to see how it looks on the site it is from, and with active frames it is super easy to jump right back into The Daily to keep reading. This feature is especially nice for those sites that use a lot of graphics and media that add to the overall aesthetic of the article.
As one can expect there is also a share button, that ties into all the usual share options that are built into BlackBerry 10. We here at NerdBerry are always sharing articles back and forth from whatever Google Reader client we are using, and without the share function of BlackBerry 10 being built into The Daily it would automatically be discarded from my Z10.
For anyone that uses Google Reader to keep on top of all their favourite news sites, I suggest you take a look at The Daily. While it isn’t a free app, at only $0.99 it is definitely worth any penny, and will make your RSS experience that much better. For more information on The Daily you can check out the support website, or check it out in BlackBerry World. Check out some more screenshots from The Daily. below.
