Problems with Google Reader

One of the advantages of Google Reader is that you can view it on multiple devices and it is always in sync. At least that’s the theory anyway!

However, it has been annoying me that whenever I view my feeds on my phone (Nokia E65) the list of unread posts looks very different.

I took a screenshot of Google Reader this morning on my Mac and on my phone so you can see what I am talking about. Both devices had their cache cleared before I loaded Google Reader and took the screenshots.

First off, the phone

Now the Mac

As you can see, there are lots of feeds missing from the version on the phone.

I deleted all the folders on Google Reader so that all my feeds are at the top level (in case the phone was only seeing one particular folder) but this didn’t help.

Is anyone else having this issue and is their a way to get around it?

Google Reader saved my life!

Well, that might be exaggerating it slightly 😉

Still, I was away recently on holidays for three weeks and I didn’t bring my laptop with me. I was offline. Cut off from the infostream for the first time in months.

Then one evening, while walking my son Enrique around the local plaza, I noticed there was wifi available on my phone (Nokia E65).

I fired up the browser on the phone, navigated to Google Reader and I nearly cried when I saw all my subscriptions load on my phone (sad aren’t I?)!

I was able to read my feeds, share interesting stories, and star ones I wanted to come back to – wohoo! I was able to get my info fix once more.

Enrique got taken for a lot of walks in that plaza for the rest of the holiday!!!
