Other Comments

Newsify has gone under a major overhaul. It was once a RSS Reader client to use with your Google Reader services. Now that Google Reader services has left the building. They have gone with the Feedly Reader services. It provides the same services if not better. Newsify still has the same interface and is extremely accessible and easy to use.

Hi, Please can someone help me with this app? I have got a google account but do not know ow to use a news feeder at all. How do I search for articles

Submitted by Sandra on Thursday, January 31, 2013

Hi, I have used ezFeeds in the past but am looking for an alternative since it hasn't been updated in quite a while. Does Newsify announce read/unread status of messages? Can I customise Newsify to sent links to a mobilizer so that articles are automatically stripped of useless links pictures etc? Can I customise the mobilizer articles are sent to for each feed separately? Is it easy to add and remove feeds in Newsify? Thank you
