syncing NetNewsWire with Google Reader

NetNewsWire is mac application for reading RSS.  Google reader is the same but online version.

To sync both applications together you have to do this:

google reader:

  1. Manage Subscriptions (bottom left corner)
  2. Import/Export tab
  3. “Export your subscriptions as an OPML file”  -> save OPML file (this is XML file with OPML structure)


Either import into netnewswire application or if you have account in newsgator import it there

  1. Import in NetNewsWire
    1. File -> Import Subscriptions -> import OPML file you have downloaded from Google Reader
    2. Properties -> Syncing tab -> Starting over tab -> replace subscription on newsgator
  2. Import into newsgator
    1. Add Feeds tab -> URL & Import tab -> Import OPML tab -> import Google reader file
    2. sync with NetNewsWire

Why I am using both ?

Google reader is easy to connect from any computer, even there is application for iPhone called GRiS
