I’ve pretty well switched over to using ReadKit full time for all my rss reading. It’s still in a very rough state of functionality. There’s a lot of work for the developer to do to get up to the level of functionality of Reeder let alone the polish of Reeder. Not to mention that I’m using its rss functionality tied to Feedbin which is also very much a work in progress. (Renaming and deleting tags was just recently added) However I really like how Readkit handles my Instapaper, Delicious1, as well as my main rss feeds. That’s really nice. If they clean up search and add in more (and cleaner) ways of exporting what you’re reading then they’ll have a killer app. That’s not to say I won’t revisit Reeder which really does have a lot of functionality. But it’s not working now and is missing those really novel features that ReadKit has.
Having made that switch I now have to switch over all those scripts that I’d converted from NetNewsWire to Reeder. (Plus a few I hadn’t converted yet)
While Pinterest has an easy bookmark to pin Safari pages I still created a companion macro for Safari.
[Edit] I should note that the above assumes you don’t have “Open Links in Background” set in the ReadKit preferences. If you prefer opening your links in the background modify your macro to add a “Activate Safari” action (from Application Control) just prior to the “Wait for Safari to Finish Loading” action.
- I have a Bitly to Delicious IFTTT rule to send over all the links I’ve shortened for Twitter and ADN ↩
- I refuse to follow the normal pronunciation though. To me it will always be p-interest rather than pin-terest. Much like OSX to me will always be said as OS EX. ↩
- If you don’t recall my discussion of changing your rarely used Caps Lock key to a meta key you can read about it here. While KM displays the shortcut as ⌘⌥⇧⌃P I think of it as ⇪P. ↩
