Fever

My review of the self-hosted RSS reader Fever went live on Obsessable yesterday. I’ve officially made the switch from Google Reader to Fever, and the only real loss that I’m experiencing is the loss of the widget in the sidebar to this blog that would normally have a list of all the things I was sharing out from Google Reader. My Google Shared Items page will still remain there, as far as I know, but that’s one of the reasons it’s good to break from it now. I have no idea how I would go about saving all those items to a database I control at this point (as I haven’t been feeding them into my lifestream for storage, as I have been doing with Twitter). With Fever, I save items within the application itself and I have a Saved items folder where they are stored forever (it even has an eternity symbol for its logo) in my database (so I can export them for use in other places, which is extremely useful).

So how do I continue to share the good links that I find with everyone reading this blog and with everyone on Twitter, FriendFeed, and Facebook? Easy. I’m tweeting them and that’s why I lengthened the number of tweets displayed in the sidebar. Enjoy!

In any case, if you’re thinking about checking out Fever, make sure you read my review and watch the video tour before plopping down the $30 for the application.
