Nokia offers Nokia Reader RSS app in Beta Labs

Like most of you, I am a very busy person and don’t have time to sit around clicking links to hundreds of sites to get my daily news. I have been using Google Reader for years as an RSS aggregator and also use this through Gravity on my Nokia N8. I just read over on the Nokia Conversations site that a new Nokia Beta Labs product is available for reading RSS feeds. The Nokia Reader app looks pretty slick, as you can see in the video below, and I just downloaded it to my Nokia N8.

If you are reading this site, then you likely know about RSS and use some kind of reader to browse through information. The cool functions in this new Nokia Reader app include a home screen widget and push notifications. I would LOVE to see support for Google Reader sync so I did not have to setup all my feeds in another application, but this is an early beta so maybe we will see this added. They should have support for importing OPML files though since setting things up by searching directories or manually typing URLs is a bit tedious.

Nokia Reader is compatible with S60 5th Edition (excluding Nokia 5800 XpressMusic) and Symbian^3 devices. Nokia Reader has been tested to work with Nokia N97, Nokia N97 Mini, Nokia X6, Nokia N8 and Nokia C7.

Any readers try this out yet?

I tried very briefly but gave up since I realised that I woul dhave to manually type in all my feeds url.
I use Google Reader on Gravity and the biggest advantage is that everything is in sinc when I open Google Reader on my works compute.
I could try Nokia Reader IF it imported OPML files to setup my feeds. But I need something that sincs with Google Reader.
Nowadays you can’t escape the big G.

Agree with Linus. As well, for S60v5 systems, this app is virtually useless because it’s a memory hog; taking up to 20MB of c drive space with Qt libraries. It would probably be OK for Symbian^3 devices if the Google Reader OPML could be easily utilized.

It seems like Nokia has to hire more developers to create the better apps and also launch them ahead its competitors.
