Just in case you’ve missed the announcement and the ensuing outcry, Google Announced that Google Reader was being retired.
I have had a lot of emails asking what I would recommend as a Goggle Reader alternative.
After looking at a few Google Reader alternatives, I decided to use Feedly.
FEEDLY IS A GREAT GOOGLE READER ALTERNATIVE BECAUSE:
- It allows you to seamlessly transition your existing Google reader feeds. I liked how Feedly made this clear and easy to understand. As I was looking at some of the other alternatives, the process just wasn’t clear and I really didn’t want to devote my headspace to learning another system.
- Feedly operates in a very similar fashion to Google Reader. This is great because I didn’t want to learn how to organise my feeds again
- It integrates with Evernote, Buffer, and all my social media channels which allows me to quickly and easily share helpful and relevant content
- I like the choice of viewing options available, as well as the fact I can tag articles etc
- It is available as a Chrome extension as well as on my mobile platforms (I use both Android and iOS)
- The user interface is very clean and easy to use
- And lastly, it’s free!
ANOTHER GOOGLE READER ALTERNATIVE I HAVE SEEN USED IS ‘IF THIS THEN THAT’
I haven’t tested if this then that personally, but I took a look at a friend’s set up and it seemed to work well for him. It took him a fair bit of work to set up his feeds, but he had feeds automatically being organised into Evernote, Drive, and a couple of other places.
I am sure there are other great Google Reader Alternatives out there. I would love to hear what you will be using.
