Feed Compass 1.0 Released
I’ve put the finishing touches on Feed Compass 1.0 and uploaded it to the App Store. Feed Compass makes it easy to find and preview blogs. If you like the blog you previewed, it makes it simple to subscribe to it in your favorite RSS Reader. I find it a really useful app, especially if you are an Apple Developer since it has the iOS Dev Directory OPML files in it.
It is a free app, so there is no reason to not check it out.
Because one of the shortcomings of Feed Compass is the lack of OPML files available on the net, I built a companion application for it, Feed Curator. Feed Curator makes it easy to create OPML files and publish them for free on the internet. I wrote about the design behind Feed Curator in Curated Blog Lists.
In the end, the applications had references to each other so I wanted to release them together at the same time. Feed Curator 1.0 is also available in the App Store and is also free.
Give these applications a try. If you read blogs, you should check out Feed Compass. If you have a collection of blogs you think is special and want to promote, you will want Feed Curator too. Feed Compass and Feed Curator together make it easy to share blogs with the world.
