The recent demise of Google Reader brought many third-party substitutes for the once-popular free service to the forefront. SushiReader is a simple alternative to the more complex RSS feed readers available.
Instead of overwhelming the user with tonnes of features, it focuses almost exclusively on displaying a ‘river of news’ – an aggregated list of all the items available for reading, which you can navigate one at a time. This structure allows SushiReader to offer its services through a very simple interface that has a very short learning curve: once set up, you can take advantage of its entire feature set with nothing more than the left- and right-arrow keys.
Still, despite its minimalistic approach, the app has several useful features, such as the ability to import OPML feed collections – perfect if you’ve backed up your old Google Reader account – and support for prioritising certain feeds over the others.
