Newsblur is an open-source newsreader with a decent amount of useful features. However, understanding its interface and functionality takes a lot of work to start using it effectively. Its design follows no user-friendly patterns, making it hard to navigate and take advantage of its full potential. The service offers no onboarding experience to walk you through its navigation.

Inoreader is full of amazing features. We realize that new users may need help learning our tool's possibilities. That's why we took great care to craft our walkthrough experience. Additionally, every new feature is presented to your attention with tips on how to grasp its full potential.

Featured collections

To follow a source in Newsblur, you must type its exact URL. You immediately subscribe to it without previewing it first. There are no suggestions for topics or popular feeds to browse.

Inoreader offers a rich catalog of high-quality content. We update it regularly to ensure you get access to the most trusted sources. Explore popular topics, discover feeds, and see article previews. Check out how many people are subscribed to a source and how often it posts new articles. If you're interested, you can also choose to get feed suggestions.

Advanced search

Newsblur offers no search functionality for free users. If you are a paid user, you can search through your subscriptions.

Inoreader offers advanced search functionalities. Our Free plan lets you search for feeds and articles within your subscriptions. Upgrade to our Pro tier to gain access to an extensive database of feeds, articles, Facebook pages, and Google News.
