After a week of testing and scaling, adding batches of users and improving our infrastructure, we’re happy to fully open Digg Reader to the public! 

To give you a sense of scale, last night we were crawling over 3.3 million feeds. We’re now up to 4.5 million. That’s a lot of data – and it’s growing quickly – but (at the risk of tempting the cruel and unforgiving Fates), the site has remained speedy and stable.

We’ve spent a ton of time this week talking with early users and have identified a few urgent feature needs that we aim to add quickly:

  • “View Unread Items Only” option for feeds and folders

  • “Mark As Unread” button

  • Accurate unread counts for feeds and folders

To try out Digg Reader, please visit digg.com/reader.

Oh, and don’t forget to download the iOS app! (Android coming in the next few weeks)

Thanks for your patience!  As always, we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback.

    This seems to be the most trusted Google Reader replacement, so if you’re into that sort of RSS thing, give this a try.
