ReadBurner, relaunched (our coverage) and brought with it a new look and many new features that improved upon the previous version of the site. Today, there comes even more news from the service: a launch of a mobilized version of the ReadBurner web site.On Tuesday, the RSS aggregator service,
The mobile version, which is available at http://m.readburner.com, offers a quick way for you to browse the top stories that are shared by the users of Google Reader while you're on the go.
The site has links to the same categories you would find on the main ReadBurner homepage, including "Popular Stories," "Upcoming Stories," and "Most Recent Stories."
The category you want to view can be selected by entering the corresponding number on your mobile phone's keypad. Also available are links to the ReadBurner blog and the mobilized version of Google Reader, so you can continue your mobile RSS consumption.
After selecting which category of stories you want to read, you are presented with a list of stories, which are also selected by entering a number on your keypad.
When reading the story, there are links to the originating blog, the people who shared the story, and, at the bottom, links to take to you the next post or previous post, back a page, or back to the main ReadBurner mobile homepage.
The posts are formatted well for the small screens, so reading through the news is easy to do.
ReadBurner mobile may even become your preferred mobile RSS source over Google Reader for two reasons: One, there is no sign-in process like with Google Reader, which requires the necessary step of entering in your Google account credentials in order to view your feeds. And two, you're guaranteed to only see the top news stories instead of whatever random selection is at the top of your hundreds of feeds at the moment.
ReadBurner mobile is a great new site, and its launch shows that the ReadBurner team isn't doing anything halfway when it comes to their new service. Clearly, they're here to compete and are aiming to become your preferred RSS aggregator.
