Bloglines Mobile adds Skweezer Integration

Bloglines just released an update to the Bloglines Mobile portal that integrates Skweezer technology:

For those of us who rely on and love Bloglines Mobile while on the go, here’s another reason to dig it. Bloglines has now integrated Skweezer technology to optimize web pages for your personal handheld mobile device’s viewing pleasure.

Bloglines Mobile is pretty interesting, but its usefulness is sometimes limited. The mobile display of feeds usually works well because they’re pretty lightweight. But, following links to real websites is practically useless. By integrating Skweezer into all outbound links, they’ve made this much less of an issue.

They’ve also created a Bloglines portal on the Skweezer site. Also intended for mobile use, this is a “skweezed” version of the Bloglines search engine. You can search in posts (default), feeds, or the web. You can also go directly to a URL of your choice.

I still need to try this from a mobile device, but from the desktop this integration looks really nice. (Tip: to return to the “full” version of Bloglines, go here.)
