Jonathan Greene on ReaderMini

John Tokash … has replicated a very close desktop experience for the mobile browser in ReaderMini. It works very well over both EDGE data and WiFi and has really enabled a very slick experience without limits. John’s been putting in some late nights, taking all my feedback (gotta love that) and released quite a few updates in very short order.

Jon, thanks for the kind words. The excellent feedback you provide on a regular basis has helped shaped ReaderMini’s functionality and UI.

Stay tuned for more updates. The next major milestone is a skin that looks nice!! – New Version for all you Google Reader fans on the run!

ReaderMini is coming along nicely. It’s a Feed Reading front end for Google Reader, using the Google Reader API. It’s built primariy for use on small internet tablets (like the Nokia 770 and n800). Here are the changes that went live tonight:

New Version of ReaderMini Up!

ReaderMini, my faster, stronger, better front end to Google Reader is now a zillion times faster at startup. Loading an account with 600 feeds is now just a few seconds on a desktop machine and less than 15 seconds on a Nokia 770 or Nokia n800 Internet Tablet. AWESOME!
