"This is why you see so many popups and banners on mobile websites that try to get you to download apps. It is also why so many mobile websites are broken."

Huh, is that surprising? They break their mobile sites and expect people to still use them more than apps? This is self fulfulling: if you make a sucky website, people will NOT use it. Make a wonderful mobile site and people will not care about your apps.

There are hundreds of great feed readers out there. Try out http://feedbin.me for example!

I have been incredibly happy with FeedBin as well. They don't screw with my feed.

The problem that i see is that once big 'popular' readers are gone, it's possible that publishers decide that RSS is a feature not worth having/maintaining. That's a choice that has been made already by platforms like Twitter and such. A lot of new (more recent) blog platforms also did not prioritize RSS.

So, as much as I agree with the statement, I'm worried that in the end, we'll all lose.

Finally, Feedly's strategy here is probably one of the best way to make sure that publishers stop puvblising RSS feeds.

Great one! I sent a bunch of people who asked how to get started into that direction :)

-----


Also, did you know that the Feedbin 'Subscribe' button is a SubToMe button? Add one to yoru blog too!

Going gtom "interesting" to "bullcrap" in 2 sentences:

(It will never rival Social Security, however.)

-----


Awesome! We used it for http://docs.subtome.com =)

-----


That's a very good point. I think we can do that by setting up a href on the <a> will still return false on the onlick. right?

-----


I hope HN had a follow button too :)
