Findory launched RSS reader
Findory has announced the launch of a “Bloglines-like” Feedreeder (available here)
According to Findory’s Greg Linden “unlike many other RSS readers, [the new service is] fast, very fast.”
Whilst it is fast, it also lacks folders and rearranges imported feeds into alphabetical order in one long list which is wonderful if your reading ten feeds on one subject, but not the 110 I currently have in my Bloglines account.
It’s ridiculous, isn’t it? I tried it for 2 minutes and gave up. How the hell can they claim that you could track over 1k feeds? This is only good for ten feeds, tops.
I have close to 200 feeds in my Bloglines acount (I realise this isn`t a competition :)) They are all arranged alphabetically without any folders or levels.
It works well for me as I can easily locate the position of the feed I want to read next.
Hi, Nick. Sorry that Findory isn’t working well for you.
With 1k feeds, the idea is to use the “Newest feeds” view, which shows you feeds that have been recently updated, and the “Top Stories from My Favorites”, which shows you a selection of recommended, recently updated articles from your feeds. That is how Findory can work for someone with 1k feeds.
Findory is different than other feed readers. It learns from the articles you read and surfaces other interesting articles. If you want to see every article from every feed you have, Findory clearly isn’t the right tool for the job. But, if you want something to help you quickly prioritize and focus in the flood of information in your 1k feeds, Findory might be what you want.
I apologize that you didn’t find the experience compelling at first. I hope you might consider trying it again.

If I ask you – do we need so many feeders, aggregators etc.? What would you answer?
Everyone wants to make money, that’s understandable.. but what a choice… what for?
