Read Your Feeds Like a Newspaper with Tabbloid

Tabbloid is a free service that lets you receive your feeds in newsletter, or rather, tabloid form via email at a set time and frequency (as a PDF file). Above is my custom Tabbloid for today. This service won’t be for everyone, but sometimes a morning coffee is best spent reading over paper and not hunched over a laptop. I could also see this being useful for travelers.

  • I wonder why they do that as an email. Having an RSS reader as a program or a website (a la Google Reader) that shows a nice newspaper-style layout will certainly find its users (though I personally don’t care about that). But why would I want to get my feeds through email? Isn’t the whole point of RSS not to clutter your inbox with notifications?

  • I guess it’ll only have a limited user base, but Tabbloid users can also choose not to receive updates at all. Instead, they can just go to the site and download the PDF directly whenever they’re going to travel – or just head to the local coffee house.

    Then again, if it were purely web-based, users could just print he page. Ok, you’re right :)

  • Not everyone has the option of being able to read the small print easily. If there were adaptation for font size increases and the like I could see something like this being good for visually impaired people who want to keep in touch with the world through the internet and would otherwise have trouble reading things like newspapers and magazines and whatever other feeds that are of interest
