After hearing about the upcoming demise of Google Reader in a few months I am looking for an alternative to Google Reader. The ones I have found were only for desktop, and I am not a fan of Feedly. Any other alternatives?
pulse would be a better n gud ...
but guys G reader is best..
I think this article will help you.
Good luck :-)
Pulse , Flipboard
I heard that WordPress you can import your google reader. They have given steps too
Read this article, it may help you in deciding : http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-rss-reader-aggregator.htm
Try again Feedly. I like it the most. Or The Old Reader, but this one seems to be slower than first mentioned.
Also, keep an eye on digg.com - http://www.digg.com/reader
Yeah, I decided to deal with feedly for the time being. It's actually a little better than I expected.
The old reader looked O.K., but to be honest I judge startups by whether they use bootstrap or not ;)
I am excited to see what digg comes up with, hopefully it'll be good.
Lots of suggestions, is there an outright winner? At the moment I am going to stick with Feedly but going to follow this thread to see just how it develops.
Listen people, Google Reader is going nowhere. I believe G.Reader fans will stop its discontinuation. Join hands with those who are trying to save it > http://www.change.org/petitions/google-keep-google-reader-running
Hey Max, try this
1) The Old Reader
FeedDemon is a standalone program, a little bit different related to what Max has asked. By the way, FeedDemon is going to die either - http://nick.typepad.com/blog/2013/03/the-end-of-feeddemon.html
I've been digging around all of yesterday, article should be up on the main site very soon. My research showed that, for me, the best alternative is Feedly. Syncs everywhere, and will seamlessly migrate your feeds from Google Reader when the time comes. Familiar keyboard shortcuts all work. Great Android app. And it is a lot better than when I last tried it six months ago – do some tweaking and it will more or less behave like Google Reader on the desktop.
The only downside: needs a browser plugin.
The Old Reader is great, but no mobile. NewsBlur looks promising, but the free version is very limited right now – the flood of users hit their server hard. Stay tuned to the main blog for many more links.
NetVibes is a serious option for you if you are going to replace google reader
NewsBlur is also an alternative
both of these are also similar to google reader in style
The Old Reader might be useful for you -
I know you say you dont like Feedly, but I have tried four different readers and that was the best for me.
I can sympathize, as I've struggled to find an adequate replacement for the simplicity of Google Reader. So far it looks like The Old Reader is going to be my best bet, though it's been rather slow given the recent amount of new sign ups imorting feeds and what not. Hopefully some more Reader like options will surface in the coming months.
some good alternative are taptu, pulse news (web based), netvibes, etc.
Junil, that's nice list. I will add http://www.feedsapi.org to the list as well as Newsblur and Feedly , thos are some very clean and powerful tools
