search cancel – Read Feeds On Your Mac

GrumlApp.comThis application is self-defined as “Google Reader for Mac OS”. You couldn’t dream up a more concise definition if you wanted to, actually.


Once you have downloaded and installed it you can use it pretty much as you use any feed reader. That, is you can read your feeds as they are updated in real time, as well as creating and renaming folders at will. And the Google Reader bit comes in because it is all synced with Google Reader by default. Any change that occurs while you are using Gruml is reflected on Google Reader, whereas anything that you modify when using Google Reader is translated into Gruml.

Other functionalities include the ability to tweet articles and also shorten links from the main dashboard, whereas Snow Leopard support has already been thought of and taken into consideration.

The current beta version is 0.9.4. It is available at no cost on the site, and the minimum operating system you will need to run it is Mac OS 10.5. If you comply with that requirement you can get started right away. In Their Own Words

“Gruml allows you to view and manage your feed subscriptions of your Google Reader account on Mac OS X.

Read your newsfeeds, manage them in folders, tag them, and much more – all in sync with your Google Reader account.”

Why It Might Be A Killer

The ability to sync both applications (Google Reader and Gruml) is a good one any way you look at it.
