Another great reading and RSS option to pick up where Google Reader left off
When Google Reader finally closed up shop we saw a scramble of replacement services crop up, and now Digg has launched its Digg Reader Android app to accompany its RSS service. Just like another familiar RSS service Feedly, Digg Reader offers syncing of RSS feeds tied to an account — in this case Google, Facebook or Twitter — and serves news to you on multiple devices.
The app is basic, clean and seems to perform well. You can browse around through popular stories without an account, or after signing in add feeds by content type or specific URL through a search function. The basic article view gives options to favorite, view on the web, digg and share out to any service and seems on par with the other apps out there. Naturally unread counts and favorites sync between your devices and on the web
Backing up the app is the Digg Reader web service, which has a very similar look to Google Reader and Feedly, with options to import OPML files for new users and a few other basic tweaks.
If you've yet to settle down on a news reader after Google Reader, you may want to give Digg Reader a look. You can grab a download of the app from the Play Store link above and visit the Digg Reader website at the source link below.
