Sneak peek: EspressoReader v2: A desktop client for Google Reader

I am a big Google Reader fan, even if I often find myself overwhelmed by the number of feeds I have to catch up on every time I fire up the the web app. For the last few months I have been working on an app that would help me manage my subscriptions. With the help of Alex, a friend and a fantastic designer, I have been working on V2 of EspressoReader: a desktop client for Google Reader.

I had released an earlier version a while back but back then I had limited knowledge of the (undocumented) Google Reader API. The new version has been written from ground up and includes a lot of interesting features like:

  • List view and Magazine view for feeds
  • Quick “jump to feed” shortcuts
  • Related feeds algorithm that scans your feeds for related content
  • Sharing options with Twitter and Google Reader

Here is a quick video of the application in action:

I will post the latest build of the application on my blog soon, but if you are interested in this build @ or dm me on Twitter.

Stay tuned for an update coming soon 🙂
