    Transitioning from Google Reader

    Transitioning from Google Reader to feedly
    by @feedly
    March 14, 2013

    Google announced today that they will be shutting down Google Reader. This is something we have been expecting for some time: We have been working on a project called Normandy which is a feedly clone of the Google Reader API running on Google App Engine. When Google Reader shuts down, feedly will seamlessly transition to the Normandy back end. So if you are a Google Reader user and using feedly, you are covered: the transition will be seamless.

    If you are a Google Reader, give feedly a try before July 1st, and you will be able to migrate seamlesly:

    Feedly for iOS
    Feedly for Android
    Feedly for Chrome
    Feedly for Firefox

    Damn! I was afraid that was coming. I live in Reader and don't want to deal with switching! Boo!

    But thanks for the post David. I've seen lots of good reports about feedly.

    I'm also considering returning to Bloglines. I'm going to try to migrate all my Google Reader feeds to both and see which works best for me.

    Google Retiring "Google Reader"

    So I need some suggestions for another good RSS reader. Google just announced they're retiring Google Reader, and that was my main feed for good articles. Who has some good suggestions for me to try, so I can combine all my SEO/local search blogs?

    Re: Google Retiring "Google Reader"

    Have been using Feedly for a couple of weeks now and really like it. Works on desktop as well as mobile, plus sharing is simple (integration with Buffer, etc). They've also just announced that when Reader finally goes all your feeds will seamlessly be integrated into your Feedly stream.

    I've also tried Netvibes which I didn't like and Newsblur which just kept crashing on my Android.

    I'm so bummed but knew this was coming. I LIVE in Reader and don't want to deal with switching and no time to even think about it now. Glad it's a couple months away.

    Re: Google Retiring "Google Reader"

    Actually, I installed Feedly to synchronize with my Google Reader feeds - it took a while to finish synchronizing but it's looking prteey good. The only thing I miss is the right hand preview window for posts... maybe there's a way to configure feedly to do that but I haven't found it yet.
