gNewsReader update gives BB10 browser sharing access to Pocket, Instapaper, and Readability

My favorite feed reading application for BlackBerry 10 has just had a hefty upgrade with a ton of new features. gNewsReader had previously allowed users to share stories found in feeds to Instapaper, Pocket, and Readability. Now you can get the same functionality from the native browser through the share menu. Awesome. There's also a full complement of feed management options now, so you can subscribe to new feeds, remove dead ones, and otherwise reorganize your RSS collection. Let's take a look at the changelog for 

  • Allow sharing of link to read later services (Pocket/Instapaper/Readability) directly from browser
  • Sharing from Feed list page now works
  • Sharing also fixes sharing via Text message and email
  • Search & subscribe to new feeds
  • Feed management, move, delete and unsubscribe
  • Open default browser option in overflow menu
  • Fix the links display in articles view
  • Misc. bug fixes & improvements

Following experimental features can be enabled via Settings menu (NOTE: they are not fit for general use yet)

  • NewsBlur support (ALPHA), early experimental support, expect regular usage support from next update
  • Images in Feed list (BETA)

Even now that Google Reader is a thing of the past, gNewsReader continues to be one of my favorite ways for keeping up with what's happening, and these new features only make the experience better.

gNewsReader update gives BB10 browser sharing access to Pocket, Instapaper, and Readability


One of the best readers out there. Very nice overview, clear and fast as well. Nice job.

the future is easy because it doesn't exist

Another great way to share, if you have greader linked to Feedly is to use IFTTT. If I tag an article in greader with a specific tag, it gets posted to my social networks automatically.

Hmmmm, still no offline mode... I'll stick with Android sideloads...

My PlayBook? Very useful in the shower as a radio and notepad :)

Yeah but are there any blackberry 10 apps that have this functionality for either Instapaper or readability?

The ones that are available for pocket are pretty pathetic in their design and functionality.

Love this app. One of the few that I truly couldn't do without. Developer is very responsive too. I've been helping to beta test it for a while and even the betas are rock solid!

Photo preview is nice and I love this app. My feeds left alone show last nights entries. If I hit refresh I get one month ago feeds. Will email developer. May be me. May be a bug.

I have this app and I love it. So far in not needing all the extra features. Just as long as I can read the articles is good enough for me.
