It seems to work just fine and automatically syncs with my Google Reader feeds. So exporting or transferring not necessary. Hollando May 8, 2013 at 4:21 pm Yeah I’m using Feedly Bit of a bug in the iOS version at tge moment – cant add feeds. Fix imminent. Steve Lindsey May 8, 2013 at 4:22 pm (hit submit by mistake) Taking your google feeds is one click, in some ways feedly is actually better, though being a reader user for a long time I wasn’t impressed by google. I use notes/igoogle & reader and they’ve all gone (or are going) Nathan May 8, 2013 at 4:25 pm If you like Google Reader and just want something similar, try http://theoldreader.com/ . TDK May 8, 2013 at 4:32 pm A Clarke I’ve moved to Feedly (feedly.com). It seems to work just fine and automatically syncs with my Google Reader feeds. So exporting or transferring not necessary. Sorry to upset you but AFAIK come 1 July there won’t be any Google Reader Feeds. Digg are building a replacement for release in June Steve Lindsey May 8, 2013 at 4:35 pm @TDK Feedly have promised to have their own back-end functional before reader feeds are gone. Sean May 8, 2013 at 5:05 pm If you have your own or shared server for this site, then I’d recommend TinyTinyRSS. TDK May 8, 2013 at 5:19 pm @Steve Lindsey Yes I saw that after posting but it’s still worth highlighting the distinction between the backend RSS feed and the client tool. I use Feedler and Google Reader. Currently they both sync to the Reader feed so when I mark something as read in one, it is marked read in the other. The point I was trying to make (and not doing it so well) was that some readers without alternate feeds will become useless on 1 July. john b May 8, 2013 at 5:20 pm Yup, Feedly. Just in case you were worried, TDK is talking ex-posterio; you can automatically import all your Reader feeds now, it works extremely well, and will continue to do so post-switchoff. john b May 8, 2013 at 5:21 pm (comma after now should be a full-stop. Obviously the import of Reader feeds won’t continue to do so post-switchoff) The Englishman May 8, 2013 at 6:26 pm Newsblur – http://www.newsblur.com/ – no question about it. SadButMadLad May 8, 2013 at 6:40 pm Another vote for Feedly. More magazine format than others and optimised for those who skim their feeds rather than read every single article. For instance you can look at a blog entry and mark all’s articles read. Ten alternatives are listed here – http://www.slideshare.net/MeetAna/google-reader-alternatives Felicity Grope May 8, 2013 at 6:45 pm Another vote for Newsblur. Apparently easy to import from Google Reader but, like a Norwegian lumberjack, not something I’ve ever tried… Dick May 8, 2013 at 8:33 pm I’m currently using Newsblur. Importing Google Reader feeds was a doddle – Newsblur handholds you through the process. It even imported my starred items from several years back and stashed them in its own “saved stories” list. I tried TinyTinyRSS on my own server, and that was acceptable. I also looked at Feedly on the day that Google announced they were closing Reader, but just couldn’t get on with it. Another con with Feedly is that it requires a plugin to work with browsers (or at least it did then.) Matthew L May 9, 2013 at 10:16 am Oh Felicity, surely you’ve received a bit of Norwegian lumber? NielsR May 9, 2013 at 11:49 am Newsblur here. Seems a little sluggish right now, but that may be my machine or the mass exodus. Like the way you can highlight preferred topics, and switch between feed and full views. David Hall May 9, 2013 at 12:29 pm TinyTinyRSS here, although it’s a bit fiddly to set up if you’re not PHP-savvy and don’t have your own server. On the plus side it’ll never be switched off… InfoholicUK May 9, 2013 at 12:58 pm I’m a NetVibes man myself, because you can have Facebook, Twitter and IMAP widgets on the front page, so it’s pretty much the only place I go. No app support for devices, but mobile page is much better than it used to be, so not really an issue. (Also allows me to circumvent work firewalls for the above. Shhh….) ChrisM May 9, 2013 at 1:57 pm I have been using this the last couple of months and am very impressed. http://dashboard.bloglines.com/ Chav Queen Bess May 9, 2013 at 11:27 pm Bloglines.
