News readers have been big business in the wake of Google Reader’s demise, just ask Digg. They launched the Digg Reader earlier this summer, initialy serving up web and iOS versions of their RSS curator, and it wasn’t half bad. Add Android to the list of platforms today. Digg Reader is now available from the Google Play Store as a free download.
Digg’s RSS reader is an extremely straightforward mobile experience enhanced by what made the company famous: a list of the day’s top stories. This content is available immediately, but users can easily add their own feeds and categories to begin generating a custom news stream.
All in all, pretty standard fare for a news reader app but a welcome option. Whereas Google Reader used to hold a corner on the market, the decision to shut down the service has at least spurred on some competition between upstarts looking to take its place.
