When I first heard that Google was killing my all-time favorite app of theirs, Google Reader, I’m pretty sure I threw something against the wall (no, not my laptop!). Sure, it wasn’t an income stream for the company and social media has become the next, hot thing, but for the tens of thousands of us who are journalists, writers, bloggers and others who rely on aggregating RSS feeds, Google Reader was king.
After the initial denial & anger phases, I started researching alternatives. After all, I couldn’t lose my hundreds of feed URLs!
At first, I wasn’t so sure, but now, after two months of using only Feedly (clutching the dying gasps of Google Reader as my backup), I’m hooked.
Feedly is flexible, easy to read and best of all, they’ve developed Android and iOS apps. Plus (a huge plus in my book!) the transition from Google Reader was seamless!
What alternative RSS aggregator have you chosen to use?
