2. ReadAir – A desktop client for Google Reader
ReadAir is an OSX Themed Desktop Client for Mac or Windows. Built with Adobe Air.
Readefine beautifies RSS, Google Reader articles, plain text and HTML for easy reading. Read content in a book like multi-column layout and tweak settings like justification, column width, etc. for that perfect look.
Readefine is available on the desktop (Windows, Mac, Linux) as well as on the web (web version has no Google Reader support). The desktop version does not contact the readefine server (except for self-updating) and is therefore faster especially when reading articles from Google Reader. The desktop version also allows a user to drag text, HTML or RSS files from the desktop on to the application.
4. Snackr: an RSS ticker for Windows/Mac/Linux built using Adobe AIR and Flex
What’s Snackr? It’s an RSS ticker that pulls random items from your feeds and scrolls them across your desktop. When you see a title that looks interesting, you can click on it to pop up the item in a window.
How do I get it? If you’re running Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux, just click the “Install Now” button over there on the right. If that doesn’t work, download and install the Adobe AIR runtime, then download and run the Snackr installer manually.
Fresh is a skinnable RSS reader built entirely using AJAX running on Adobe AIR. The Fresh reader features offline RSS reading, multiple panels within a single window, tabbed browsing, and basic browser integration. Fresh is based on the YUI-Ext / Ext JS library and RSS Feed Viewer sample by Jack Slocum
