Last week Google announce that Google reader will ceased to exist starting July this year. This is sad news for me, I have been an loyal user of this great app and it is how I check and catch up on all my favorite news and events.
I always liked RSS as it is simple and straight forward to use, Google reader brings all my news feed into one common interface which makes it easy and simple for me. Sadly I will miss this great tool which I have been using for almost 10 years.
So what are the alternatives to reader, people have been taking about feedly, personally I haven’t tried it but will need to in the coming weeks as I search for a good replacement. I want something which is not too graphics intensive as I like to read on the go (well not actually reading while on the go but you know what I’m saying).
So until then I would milk as much out of reader as I can, hopefully with the online petition the public can get Google to keep reader alive for awhile longer.
If you are like me and make use of Google reader a lot, please help by signing the petition here. You can make a difference!
