ReadAir – Google Reader In Adobe AIR Application

By . Filed in Tools


Good news for those who read feeds via Google Reader. Here’s another option where you can read feeds with a standalone application on your desktop, without logging into Google Reader with browser. ReadAir is build with Adobe AIR, so you can be rest assured that it will run smoothly cross-platform, Linux, Mac or Windows.

The current ReadAir supports most functions of Google Reader but there’s still room for improvement before it really works like Google Reader on desktop. Getting keyboard shortcuts to be functioning is essential, display total number of un-read feeds on desktop icon is also cool. And these are all part of the developer’s to-do list, so you can be expecting them on any future update.

Overall, it’s still a cool app. FYI, there’s also a standalone Google Analytics built with Adobe AIR, if you are not aware of.
