    The Old Reader has a clean, simple interface and is easy to use. Right now, it's pretty slow to load, and I'm wondering if that's because so many people are checking it out after Google Reader's demise.

    Big questions: Any plans for a phone app? What about other sharing options (like to email or G+ or FB or Twitter)? Right now, I see only Pocket (which is a great touch, by the way). Thanks for this post.

    Love the minimalistic look and feel, this could replace my chrome extension as my regular feed-reader.

    To add on, The Old Reader also equips you with a handful of keyboard shortcuts which helps you save some extra-time while you navigate through the article and of course it also aids you with action buttons such as “like”.
