Today Google announced that they would shut down their online RSS reader service Google Reader on July 1, 2013. So if you are a Google Reader subscriber looking for an alternative you may not yet know that DEVONthink Pro and Pro Office are excellent news reader, too!
Add any RSS feeds that you want to read in DEVONthink using the menu command Data > New > Feed. Feeds appear just like “living” groups with HTML files for every downloaded article. Just like in any news reader DEVONthink marks new articles as “unread”. Adjust how your feeds are updated and presented in DEVONthink Pro (Office) > Preferences > RSS. DEVONthink offers a number of different styles, converts RSS categories automatically to tags, and can remove old articles.
If you want to transfer your existing feeds from Google Reader to DEVONthink Pro (Office) you can also easily do so. Lifehacker has a great description on how to export your feeds using Google Takeout. You just have to add one more step between steps 3 and 4: “Rename ‘subscriptions.xml’ to ‘subscriptions.opml'”. That helps DEVONthink to recognize the XML file as proper OPML. Import your feeds by dragging the “subscriptions.opml” file into DEVONthink and rename the created group “subscriptions” to anything you like.
