iOS users can now experience Digg’s Google Reader replacement

On June 27, 2013

There is no slowing down for Digg – just after recently launching a private beta for its new web app, Digg announced that the beta will now be available to all users signed up for the Google Reader replacement testing. Following this announcement, the first batch of invites was sent out to users and Digg promised to increasingly enlarge the batches of users it adds.

Digg Reader is a work in progress and therefore cannot deliver the same features and experience as those of Google Reader, however, you’ll still enjoy using Google Reader-like shortcuts, importing your Google Reader content, and saving and sharing the usual stuff. According to Digg, users should look forward to cool new features in the coming months. There’ll be integration of IFTTT functions and additional sharing and sending options such as to Google+, Dropbox, Squarespace, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Evernote, WordPress, and Buffer. Other features include importing and exporting data capabilities, bookmarklet and/or browser extension, as well as Uber for cronuts.

Digg Reader for iPhone and iPad is already available in the App Store.
