RSS reader Collector updates download engine

Published by at

RSS reader 'Collector' has picked up another update as many mobile users migrate away from Google Reader ahead of its closure in July. Functionally, users will see the new support for the 'Pocket' deferred reading service (which was previously called 'Read it Later'), as well as the ability to skip over the welcome screen.

Behind the screen, Squallstar Studios has updated the download engine that Collector uses for increased performance and compatibility with more RSS feeds, Twitter accounts , and Tumblr streams - all of which are available to view in Collector.
