  • im on week 2 of feedly vs currents vs flipboard.. im cool about the visuals and the similarities.. like the ability to sync with read-later-apps. I will go for the lesser data hog. but onovo and the other data control apps are not giving the best readings.. oh well.. maybe you experienced or know about this.

    • Hi Luis,
      Thanks for taking time to leave a comment on Techacker. Appreciate it.

      I like to keep @Feedly as it gives me more control on my RSS feeds for all the 100s of blog I read. And I use Flipboard for reading news, social media updates and quickly browsing various channels on Flipboard.
      So far I haven’t found a good replacement for Feedly. Frankly speaking I can’t seem to understand what Google Current is trying to offer. It’s a mix of Feedly, @News360 and Flipboard all in one. But for some reason, I don’t like it. It’s kind of boring to use Currents.

      Now regarding the data usage I have found that Feedly uses less data than @Flipboard. But that would depend on how much you use the app. I can’t complain about Flipboard either.

      As I said, both of these are my favorite apps for RSS, news and social media consumption.

      Thanks,
      Anurag
