I used just one app to read all RSS feeds and tweets from selected Twitter accounts

There is one element of Internet service that is not used as much as web browser, streaming media, email services - RSS feeds. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. A lot of blog sites and news services are set up with RSS feeds so that the users can use their favourite RSS reader app to subscribe and read them. I remember that there was a big outcry when Google shutdown a very popular service - the Google reader in 2013. It was the default RSS reader for many people at the time.

As Google Reader is gone, there are still many RSS services and reader apps, such as -

My favourite reader service / app is Inoreader. I signed up for Inoreader pro plan. The reason I chose Inoreader over feedly as the plan has some features that work for me (like keyword monitoring, setting up rules, remove duplication) and is less expensive than the premium plan at feedly.

After the standard initial set up of subscribing to my favourite RSS feeds, I installed the Inoreader chrome extension. This enables me to add my favourite blog sites that may not set up with RSS feeds to be added to the subscription. I also set up a folder called “worthwhile reading”, then add the specific RSS feeds and blog sites to the folder. Then I added a few important Twitter accounts to Inoreader so that I would not miss important tweets from them.

Except for pdf files, Inoreader has become my one stop shop for reading most feeds (RSS, Twitter) from the Internet. My favourite device is to use the Inoreader app on my iPad Mini 6, just the right size.

It is also worthwhile to mention that Inoreader enables highlighting and annotation and sync with Readwise as well. Readwise is another service that can extract highlighted or annotation from pdf files, web articles, ebook readers, etc. Not too many RSS readers that I am aware of have this feature.
