Currently a free subscriber, but am seriously contemplating taking the plunge. Any plans to open your API to third party developers. I note that my current iOS rss apps of choice will be using feedly, feedbin, etc… (due to my OCD complex I have seperate apps for different rss categories…) Any possibility of newsblur following suite? This would be a big plus
If you’re wondering why there are no third-party iOS and Android apps, it’s because of newsblur.com/ios and newsblur.com/android. Fact is, NewsBlur is pretty far different from other readers, what with training and social and the tight vertical integration.
Are the iOS / Android apps open source as well?
Looked into “apps” not into “media”
Wowowow! big thanx bro!
I use official android app and
Psyched to hear that! If it has mark-as-unread I’m sold, I’m really keen to use a NewsBlur reader on Android, but could never seem to get my login to work for Blar and the official client doesn’t have mark-as-unread
Yes, it has ‘mark as unread,’ though I should probably test it. It’s still beta, and they haven’t implemented the “saved articles” feature yet. Currently it’s moving to be ‘quasi-open-source’ so the developer can get the community’s help on this version. However, grabbing articles and content and syncing read-state is working perfectly!
Awesome! Just grabbed it, with give it a whirl
Sorry for the confusion, the mobile apps moved to /apps from /media just yesterday.
Actually, we have a new one! NewsRob (an excellent Android offline newsreader that can grab the web-content as well as the feed) is currently getting updated with Newsblur suppor. Here is the link to Beta4 so far: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/newsr…
The API is one of the main reasons I chose NewsBlur. From what I hear, it was prett y easy to implement, too.
