Gruml – Google Reader Desktop Application for Mac

Gruml is a desktop feed reader application that is completely integrated with Google Reader. Unlike some other programs that claim to do the same, Gruml does more than just show you your feeds.

Gruml includes:

  • Share this article.
  • Star this article.
  • Like this article.
  • Mark as Unread, which also marks the item un-read in Google Reader.
  • Tweet this article.
  • Send this article to Digg, Delicious, Instazaper, Tumblr, StumbleUpon, Posterous, MySpace and more.
  • Write a note to go along with an article.
  • Mange labels and organize your labels.
  • Keeps the Google Reader keyboard shortcuts.
  • Shows you articles from people you follow in Google Reader.

Basically, if it’s possible in Google Reader, it’s possible in Gruml.

I’ve been very happy with Gruml and it’s nice to see a desktop application that actually integrates into Google Reader and all its features.

If you’re on a Mac, and use Google Reader, it’d suggest checking Gruml out.

    Have you tried NetNewsWire since it started using Google Reader to sync feeds? They’re still working the kinks out but it’s pretty good. I’d love to see what you think about it in comparison to Gruml.

      NetNewsWire works well but doesn’t do anything but read your Google Reader feeds. There is no sharing, no stars, no friends feeds, if you mark something as unread it doesn’t mark it as unread in Google Reader. It just syncs feeds, that’s it at this point.

        I’m trying Gruml now. It’s not bad. I think I’m too accustomed to the way NetNewsWire functions too switch. I hope NetNewsWire improves soon to do what you mentioned. I loved it before the switch to Google Reader. They definitely have some issues to iron out. On a different note, congratulations on your daughter. She’s a cutie.
