Comments on Inoreader in 2021

“When Google stopped the provision of Google Reader, I experimented with several alternative RSS readers. Soon, Inoreader became my new gateway to a large amount of weblogs. Six years ago I added some Twitter-lists to this feed reader. I use Inoreader of my iPhone, iPad and MacBook. It is easy to organise and share items or save items. Therefore Inoreader is crucial for curating information. However, curating is only a first step in learning. You need process the information, if you really want to learn (e.g. understand, apply and create).” Wilfred Rubens, Netherlands

“I continue to use Inoreader as a blog aggregator for my doctoral class, where all students have their own personal blogs.  Inoreader can be embedded in the Canvas module so that students have a single place to visit to find fellow students’ posts.” Britt Watwood, Academic, Canada

“Rather than trying to remember to visit every website that might have information that is relevant to me, I use RSS (real simple syndication) to subscribe to various feeds, so all the information comes into one place. Inoreader is an RSS aggregator (meaning it “collects” all the things I want to subscribe to and keeps track of what I have read and what remains unread). To read my RSS feeds, I prefer to use Unread. When reading RSS feeds using the Unread app on my iPad, I can browse articles and mark things as read using only my thumb.” Bonni Stachowiak, HE educator, USA

“It provides all the functionalities I need as a feeds aggregator and allows others as sharing collections.” Mercè Gamell, Freelancer teacher and project manager, Spain
