Clean and simple RSS reader πŸ”–

Enkel by James Newman (@jam3sn_) from Cardiff, UK.


Enkel is a clean and simple RSS reader.


What’s your motivation for creating your product?

Enkel is a clean and simple RSS reader. If you like me, you probably have multiple news apps or sick go being bombarded with images and popups. I aim to simplify the way you aggregate and check your news.

Inspired by the minimal movement and the challenge of building a black & white UI, I want the user to be able to focus on the content.


When did you launch?

How did your launch go?

The launch went fairly well. We have 150 users registered, nearly 300 feeds created using almost 400 sources (RSS feeds).


Any specific launch tips? Or things you would do differently?

This is my first time really launching my own product, so I didn’t really know what to expect. It’s worth taking some time to think about a strategy for getting your product out there. People to tweet, sites to post too. I’m kind of learning this now post launch, posting to these places the following evenings since launch and still figuring things out!
