RSS can save time keeping up with news, blogs, podcasts, vodcasts, and web sites by making your news come to you.

What you need:

  • A feed reader (e.g. Feedly, InoReader, or RSSOwl). See "Choosing a Feed Reader" below for information about using your favorite Internet or email applications as feed readers.
  • An RSS, Atom, or other feed (look for the above icon on your favorite sites)

Note: Google Reader, a formerly popular feed reader, no longer exists.
