Switching to Rojo

I’ve been badly in need of a new RSS reader for a few months now. When I started subscribing to RSS feeds earlier this year I was looking for a quick, web-based solution and ended up using Waggr, a pretty plain and simple app. For the mostpart, Waggr has served me well until recently, when the growing number of feeds made handling increasingly cumbersome.

Unfortunately, Waggr doesn’t offer an OPML export function. Today, I finally got around to manually adding my feeds into Rojo, my new RSS reader.

What is Rojo?
Rojo is a web-based service that allows you to efficiently organize, read, and share content—such as online news, information and blogs. Rojo is free and easy to use and there is no software to download.

Rojo enables users to subscribe to feeds that are published by online content sites, blogs, and various corporations in either an XML, RSS, or Atom format. (Rojo reads all three formats.)

These “feeds” are streams of information. For example, the New York Times publishes its headlines as an RSS feed. Amazon.com publishes various categories of its most popular books as an RSS feed. Cisco uses RSS feeds to communicate regularly with its customers and suppliers. Using Rojo, feeds are delivered to your desktop and presented in a way that enables you to quickly scan headlines or choose to view the full story.

Rojo also gives you the ability to share these stories with friends and colleagues, and discover new feeds.
