Google reader

  1. 1. 15 reasons why we wont miss Google Reader
  2. 2. Yep its true. Google Reader facesits Apocalypse in a few months.
  3. 3. Google Reader, the eight-year-old RSS readerthat became an industry standard, has beengiven a funeral date: July 1, 2013. RIP Google Reader. You were a great sport..
  4. 4. Though the lack ofGoogle Reader willbe a terrible loss…
  5. 5. ..there are fewreasons that leadus to think that wewont miss GoogleReader as much…
  6. 6. 1. Consistently dropping “certain feeds” andthen posting ten of them at once weeks later. It gets pretty annoying with time.
  7. 7. 2. Even after unsubscribing from severalblogs[multiple times] Google kept signing back up for them!
  8. 8. 3.Other alternatives like Feedly are farbetter, offer more options and is much user friendly than our poor old Reader
  9. 9. 4. Everyone hated the new designGoogle Reader under went in 2011
  10. 10. 5. Google Reader has not had any new features in yearsAlthough all these features are cool, they came way back in 2008.
  11. 11. 6. Subscriptions! Managing them is a real pain. There is no easy way to change their order throughsetting(you need to be in a reader view to drag and drop them)
  12. 12. 7. All the social features are removed and replaced by a Google +1 button. TRASH Clicking the +1 button only adds the page to your GoogleProfile &you need to click the "share on Google+" box to share the page with your friends.
  13. 13. 8. Feed column cannot be expanded It is a concern for users with smaller screens. The feed column takes up a whole lot of space
  14. 14. 9. Lacks imagination.Looks a lot like Gmail
  15. 15. 10. Folders and tags cannot public.The blogroll widget and the associated public page don’t updated.
  16. 16. 11. All the items +1d from Google Reader are treated like any other pages. Theres no way to read the posts shared by your friends in Google Reader
  17. 17. 12. Doesnt offer keyboard shortcuts for sharing posts: Shift+s, Shift+d.
  18. 18. 13. Home page! It’s completely up to GoogleReader what is shown on reader’s Home page. You may tweak the Homepage but cannot arrange the Blogs according to your hierarchy.
  19. 19. 14. Its SlowScrolling works fine. But The Reader becomes awfully slow after performing few tasks.
  20. 20. 15. Too much white space
