Grr Is A Fast & Light Google Reader Application For The N900

If you are looking for a Google Reader application for the N900, I recommend giving Grr by Jan Dumon a try, considering that it has just been released it is a little short on functionality such as starring a post, sharing it and so on but it works well if you are looking for a speedy way to simply browse your RSS feeds on the go. It is in the extras-devel repository (here’s how to easily enable it, the usual warnings apply).

  • Here you have the option of keeping the post unread or opening it in the browser. I would have liked at option to star posts as well, but that will probably come in a future release.

Hat tip to @alextootchie for the find.

  1. This app is just what I need, but how can it be 15.3mb size? Does it have 3d and lasers and everything? :/ I hope it’s optified

  2. Does this mean I should abandon Bloglines, or will there be a version to support that as well? I would consider switching as long as I can read my feeds from mobile, office and home PC and they all are kept in synch…

  3. That’s amazing. It gets a lot of things right for a 0.01 release, I wonder if there’s a talk.maemo.org thread/bugzilla for it, I’d like to suggest a couple things.

    Also, @brank, the app itself is ~280kb, only it installs lots of new Qt libs (4.6.2 I think, the ones that’ll come with PR 1.2), so that’s why the big download size. And yes, afaik it is optified.

  4. Heya excellent website! Does running a blog such as this
    require a lot of work? I have absolutely no understanding of programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyways, should you have any ideas or tips
    for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject nevertheless
    I just needed to ask. Thank you!
