- Thank you for the heads up on this. I would not be surprised if they integrated the reader experience into Google + or Google Currents. Great post MichaelMar 15, 2013
- Just started trying Feedly. It was already my front runner. Very easy. Have also set up on my Nexus & and smartphone, not quite as easy on them, but still better than nothing.
Thanks for your post.Mar 15, 2013
- Was looking at Feedly, NewsBlur, Netvibes and The Old Reader.
1) The Old Reader - practically crashed under heavy load. For 2 days I can't even import my subscriptions. Once it went through, but crashed in a minutes. Fail.
2) NewsBlur - looks interedting, but free version is very limited. I have 300 subs, and I am allowed to use only 12?! Thanks, but - Fail.
3) Feedly - very interesting. Very slow. Very limited configurability. On my 30" screen it takes about 30% of it - narrow column in the middle of the screen.
/* Scratch that! Easily fixed by Stylish script */ Hangs a lot on any configuration changes. Not a complete fail, but not a success story either.
4) Netvibes - closest to Google Reader in the way it looks. Organization is also very similar to GReader. Fastest of all 4 readers. Looks like a winner, but I am stil comparing it to Feedly (mostly because everybody praises Feedly).Mar 15, 2013
- I'll have to try it... but I never used Google Reader.
I was already using Pulse.. and sometimes Google Currents.Mar 15, 2013
- It'll be interesting to see if Reader closing causes a renewed focus on RSS and readers, or if it'll be a quiet app change for people and status will remain quo.
I've been using Pulse for a few years and love it. Even on the desktop, but I'm gonna dip my toe in feedly and see if I dig.Mar 15, 2013
- Thanks,. Any ideas for replacing iGoogle, which can include current rss posts of selected blogs? A personalized home page, it's very useful for blogs that don't distribute via email.Mar 15, 2013
