9 Google Reader Alternatives to Manage Your Blog Subscriptions

  1. 1. 9 Google Reader Alternatives to Manage Your Blog Subscriptions Alternatives to Google ReaderFeedlyhttp://feedly.comFeedly already integrates with Googles API and state in their blog post that if you sign up with Feedly before July 1stthen the transition will be painless. I hope it is! Feedly is available for Firefox and mobile both Android and iOS.Since a lot of my Twitter updates come from articles I have read in Reader, I will be using the Feedly feature to tweetwhat I read!Google CurrentsThis is mobile only for Android and iOS. My Local Business Online blog and YouTube channel is available throughCurrents if mobile reading and watching is what floats your boat. Subscribe from your phone or tablet here. WithReader dying, no doubt this app will become more popular.Not every blog you read will be available though. If you want to publish your blog through Currents, you need to useChrome and create an account at https://www.google.com/producer/homeNewsblurhttp://www.newsblur.com/Newsblur is a nifty looking RSS reader available on the web and mobile. Theres a "Blur Blog" where you can sharestories with other readers too.This does have a free option but with a limit of 64 sites and 10 stories at a time its not for me. The premium upgrade is$1 per month, which made me think, "Whats the point in that?" Obviously that is worth paying if this reader is yourcup of tea. I cant see an easy way to share to Twitter and other social sites and its slow to load - perhaps because ofthe mass exodus from Google Reader.9 Google Reader Alternatives from My Local Business Online
  2. 2. Bloglines Readerhttp://www.bloglines.com/Bloglines has been around forever (or so it seems!) and if youre in the States has a great "local" service too that bringsyou news from sites and blogs around your city. The standard Bloglines Reader will pick up the news feed from blogsanywhere.Feed Readerhttp://www.feedreader.com/Read all your feeds and listen to podcasts too. Feed Reader has a web based version or you can download a Windowsclient. Free to use.Netvibeshttp://www.netvibes.com/A free reader with premium upgrade. The free version is quite restricted with not even a simple search, so not for me.Premium upgrade is out of my budget at $499 per month, but may be useful for some users with the analytics andcuration features.Taptuhttps://www.taptu.com/Taptu allows import of Google Reader feeds, but once Reader disappears they wont be available. As a reader it s gonefor the pretty picture look, personally Id rather have a plain list. Adding feeds isnt as simple as typing in the URL andauto-detecting the feed, and as yet I havent found how I can add custom streams not through Google Reader... One towatch though!The Old Readerhttp://theoldreader.comCurrently in beta and looks lovely - by that I mean no pretty pictures. Theres an option to import feeds, however theload at the moment meant I couldnt see how easy that was. Log in with Facebook or Google, free to use.Pulsehttp://www.pulse.me/Another pretty picture style reader and really frustrating to add feeds individually. First , you need to search for the sitethen scroll until you find it in the results it produces. Not for me who has 100s of feeds!Export Google Reader DataYou can also export your Google Reader data from http://www.dataliberation.org/google/readerJoin the conversationWill you miss Google Reader?
