Bloglines improves mobile RSS feed display

Picked up from Aaron Brazell at The Blog Herald that Bloglines has made improvements for mobile users. Apparently mobile users are seeing this message on their screen:

For those of us who rely on and love Bloglines Mobile while on the go, here’s another reason to dig it. Bloglines has now integrated Skweezer technology to optimize web pages for your personal handheld mobile device’s viewing pleasure.

When you click on a link while reading a blog post in Bloglines Mobile, Skweezer will compress and reformat the content so you get it faster and better looking on your small screen. As you surf, the content will continue to be skweezed. Hints & bonus features:

  • Click on the ‘Hide Images’ link at the bottom of the page and skweezed content will load even faster.
  • At the bottom of the skweezed page, you’ll find links back to the feed you were reading and a link back to your feed list.
  • If you run across any pages that are not in your native tongue, Skweezer will translate to more than a dozen languages.

So if you’ve been wary of venturing beyond your Bloglines Mobile on your fancy new Blackberry (or Treo or other smartphone), free yourself from those inhibitions and click away!

I don’t use Bloglines nor a mobile device for RSS feeds, but I see the day coming for my at least getting feeds mobile. Like Aaron, I’m interested in hearing if others are using a mobile device for RSS feeds and how user friendly the experience is.
