Social Feeds was arguably one of the most beloved apps on BB 7. It was a great way to aggregate all of your social feeds into one handy app, but sadly when BlackBerry 10 came along, gone went the Social Feeds app. Luckily there's a new kid in town that goes by the name of FeedMinder and hopes to take over where Social Feeds left off.
FeedMinder is a Twitter and RSS reader with plenty of features and options. You can browse your feed, share to email or social services, get notifications in the Hub and much more. Plus it's all native so that should make many users very happy.
Full features include:
- Rich, snappy, native UI combines Photos, Tweets, RSS and Atom articles.
- Without leaving the app, drill-down on Tweets, follow users, view hashtag searches.
- Tweet, Retweet, Reply.
- Share your favorite articles on Facebook, Twitter, Email, BBM and others.
- Hub Notifications, Polling, Active Frames, Priority Hub.
- Configure rules to only be notified of specific topics, friends or feeds so notifications don't become a nuisance.
- Mark-read support, unread counts, mark-tab-read.
- Choose a light or dark theme.
- Search bar filters feeds as fast as you can type.
- Swipe down to refresh all, or pull-to-refresh just the active tab.
- Optional "Reader Mode" strips adverts and makes easy reading.
- Expand items in place to reveal more.
- Full article viewing in app - no more hopping in and out of the browser as with other apps.
- Organize your Twitter and RSS feeds together across any number of configurable tabs to group information in a way that makes sense to you, regardless of source.
- Add RSS and Atom feeds directly from the browser (long press URLs anywhere on the device and share them to FeedMinder)
- Choose from our extensive live Catalog of feeds.
- Enter a web page and we'll scan it for feeds for you.
- Or, perhaps you'll be happy with the default set of subscriptions that cover World News, Sport, Technology, Entertainment, Business and more...
- Native, fluid, not an Android port.
You can grab FeedMinder now for all BlackBerry 10 devices in BlackBerry World for $1.99
