Substack’s new RSS feed reader is now on web and mobile
The new Substack RSS reader is the spiritual successor to Google Reader.
If you’re still on the hunt for a new Google Reader replacement, then Substack might have an answer for you. The self-publishing platform has launched a new RSS reader to aggregate posts on both the web and iOS.
Substack revealed its new RSS reader in a blog post on the company’s website earlier this week. Mentioning Google Reader by name, the company has delivered a new alternative for those who still miss the defunct RSS reader.
Substack reader lets you compile all of your subscriptions and favorite writers in one easy-to-navigate window. With different menus and shortcuts, you can easily navigate all your followed content.
Additionally, the platform added third-party RSS support to its reader. That means you can add RSS feeds from other publications and keep up with all the posts you want from a single webpage.
Substack wanted to create something familiar to its reader by adding shortcuts and menu options that simply make sense. You have a profile and library menu to manage your followed content.
And there’s a discovery tab so you can see similar content and possibly find new writers to follow. The platform also added quality-of-life features like dark mode to make Substack reader more appealing to wide audiences.
Substack Reader sounds like a spiritual successor to Google Reader that could be a good replacement for those who still miss the classic RSS feed. At least until Google brings its own feed aggregator back to Chrome.
