One of my favourite apps on my iPad is the Feedler App. It’s basically just a way for me to get my Google Reader easily on my iPad. I am a blog lover. Love reading and discovering others thoughts so when I’m winding down at night I can check my blog loves on the couch or curled up in bed.
The app is free and I haven’t experienced any of the negatives comments I’ve found online about having to pay after a period of time.
The only downside so far is that I can’t update my feed or blogs that I follow on my iPad. I have to do it on the computer but then it automatically updates my subscriptions when I log back in on the iPad.
If you haven’t discovered blogs yet as a tool to keep you informed on fashion trends, health news, recipes, lifestyle stories then I advise you get into it. I use blog reading to give me knowledge and ideas. I get creative ideas that I can use at work. Sometimes I get ideas for how to dress appropriately at work. I find new recipes to add to my clean eating menu. Blogs are definitely a lifestyle and career tool that I use to the fullest.
Here are my current subscriptions:
