It’s been a while since the Google announced the murder of Reader. And for the past two months, I was waiting for a replacement that would be worthy of my attention. But then I’ve reconsidered majorly how I started using RSS lately, and the same way as Podcasts, they were mostly read on iPhone.
My minimalistic aspirations are making me reconsider and lower the number of applications that I am using. Since iPhone is always with me, and RSS is mostly scanning and saving to Pocket for later reading, I figured, why just not kill RSS applications on Mac and underused iPad altogether?
Contemplation on less sync
Then I gave a thought to that scenario, and realized a small list of benefits:
- I won’t have to pay a dime – Reederapp that I am using is perfect and will let me have the whole setup offline
- Mac and iPad will have more reading time in Pocket, iBooks, and Kindle – for what I mostly have been using them if I was consuming material.
- I won’t have to worry about sync
- My RSS will always be with me, so nothing to worry about there
Seems I’m doing this for a second time and putting a bit emphasis on iPhone mini work. This is the second article today written on it, and I am moving more and more of my work straight to the palm of my hand, accessible everywhere.
This seems to be the natural progression. Seems that I am localizing all the distractions basically in the device that I am feeling most personal with, and on top of it all spend most of my free time.
