Google Reader Users Have No Fear. Feedly Has Your Back!!!

Helping debug apps has it’s perks…

I was rather distraught (just like a lot of other folks) when Google announced yesterday that it was shutting down Google Reader. I’ve been a long time Feedly user, and my blogs synchronizes directly through Google Reader. I wasn’t sure which direction I would go. Until Feedly swooped in and saved the day!

I checked the Feedly blog this morning and they have announced that they have been working on their own google reader type API for their users. Any existing accounts will be automatically synchronized and transitioned to the “Normandy” server by July 1.

What does this mean for you? Three simple steps!

  1. Install Feedly. You can get it for your browser, iPhone, Android, tablet, they have it everywhere!
  2. Get used to using Feedly. They’ve setup a new post to show you all its great features.
  3. Enjoy your reading experience without interruptions!

This makes me very excited. Feedly was very proactive in it’s planning and I think they’ll continue to provide a wonderful experience.

Go give them a try! I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

    1. I think you’ll like it. One of my favorite features is how it synchronizes across platforms. I read a few blog posts on my Nexus 7, maybe another on my phone. Then when I log in via my browser the next morning, they’ve been properly cleared out as read.

      1. Yeah, the cross-platform sync is definitely nice. Means that Feedly can actually replace what I’m currently using. Now we’ll just have to see how smooth the actual transition is once Reader actually goes away…

What are your 10 bits on the matter? I want to know!
