Thanks to Robert for the heads-up from the Web 2.0 conference.
EDIT: First Impressions:
It barfed on importing my Bloglines exported OPML. Only imported 42 of 600 + feeds. Not sure why… Actually, it’s just taking a really long time to import all the feeds. 30 minutes later, it’s up to 500+ imported.
It took the groups/folders in my Bloglines feed list, and turned them into the GMail equivalent – labels. Nice.
Gives a REALLY irritating “you just subscribed to such-and-such a feed” new item for every feed you add. No way to “select all, mark as read” that I could find. Annoying when you import OPML.
Nice and AJAX-y. Keyboard shortcuts like Gmail.
Drop down menu lets you “Gmail This” or “Blog This”
Doesn’t render on my Samsung i730 wireless Pocket PC – blank page with one bullet is all I get. How about a mobile version, Google?
Seems REALLY slow, but I’ll attribute that to the newness.
What the heck does “Sort by Relevance” do?
Completely breaks down with a large number of feeds. Doesn’t show any information about where the unread feed items are – just displays a HUGE list of posts, with title and author. No grouping by what feed they came from. Newsgator Mobile does this, too, and it drives me CRAZY. This could be a deal killer for me.
