Quick tip: Reading Feeds On Your Mobile

    May 19, 2005

Just a quick tip about the perfect(?) solution to keep an eye on your RSS feeds while being away from the computer.

I wanted to make sure that I didn’t have to subscribe to interesting feeds in two programmes/services — one feed reader in the computer and one in the mobile device. The solution was extremely simple. I already use Bloglines as my feed reader and they have a mobile version you can use.

Problem is that many mobile devices have built-in browsers that are more or less useless. My P910i is one example, and I just couldn’t log in to Bloglines Mobile with it.

Opera for Mobile came to my rescue. It’s free and available for a wide range of devices. It works perfect.

Bloglines Mobile + Opera for Mobile = Your feeds everywhere.

Could this be interesting for a sales force constantly on the run, to help them quickly access internal blogs and news? Not sure, there are as we have seen security issues with Bloglines.
