Since the shutdown of Reader, I still haven’t found a good way to keep track of my feeds.
I’ve used Feedly for a while, but I’m a little turned off by things “in the cloud” at the moment, plus I don’t want to make the same mistake I’ve made with Reader, and be at the mercy of one site, with no possibility of exporting my data.
I’d rather save on my drives everything I read ; I used Reader as a backup for my corner of the web, searching in it to find where I’d heard of a particular topic.
So… I found RSSowl, which is okay I suppose, even if it requires Java. I was able to import the list of feeds I’m subscribed to, but I’m missing a lot of news items, since most feeds contain just the x latest items, for obvious reasons.
Is there a way to import older items in RSSOwl ? Is there another tool more suited to my needs, which are:
- save all the things forever (maybe even with the images)
- (optional) can share on popular social networks, can save on services like instapaper
What do you guys use ? Have you stopped using RSS altogether, as a friend of mine did* ?
