MultiPlx is a visually appealing RSS reader, an alternative to the discontinued Google Reader. In MultiPlx, all the stories are arranged on a grid on the page, unlike in Google Reader where the stories were arranged in a subject list. You can browse and read stories without signing up.
However, you have to sign up on their website to personalize your homepage. You can add feeds by category (Entertainment, Tech, Business etc) or add feeds of your favorite blogs/websites manually to the reader. Or simply import your full list of feeds from Google Reader to MultiPlx through an OPML/XML file. Once you are finished you can start reading stories from your personalized homepage.
Once you click on a story, it pops up on the screen without leaving the page. Once you have read the story, close the pop-up screen and get back to the start page. Or you can simply press the “previous” and “next” buttons to browse through stories one by one from the pop-up screen. For every article, you can share it with a single click on social media sites (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+ etc) or by email.
The reader has a responsive design, which means that you can access it from any device (PC, smartphone, tablet) and it will automatically adapt to your screen for an optimal reading experience.
It currently accepts signups only through invites, so you might have to wait a little to start customizing your homepage. However, you can still use MultiPlx to browse, read and share stories without registration.
