I am probably part of the reason Google has decided to end Google Reader. I too have started using another tool to read news feeds, but this tool pulled from my Google Reader account. So now what do we do when Google turns off the switch?
From what I have been reading around the web, there is a solution for "moving over" our feeds to another service, though there is some chatter in the wind about those being shut down too. Feedly is the site that most are talking about, as it is most like Google Reader.
Some of the other sites that are being mentioned have little sticking points like only working on Windows. Check them out for yourself and see which one works best for you! We have until July 1, 2013 to move over to another service.
- Feedly.com (browser and mobile apps)
- NetVibes.com (lots of other uses too)
- Newsblur.com (getting many transfers from Google)
- RSSOwl.org (Windows only)
- Feeddemon.com (may be on its way out - Windows)
- Pulse.me (social magazine)
- Flipboard (iOs and Android only and I love it!)
- NetNewsWireapp.com (Mac only)
Whitson Gordon wrote a great article explaining how to go about switching to a new service and list some alternatives as well.
