Weekly Poll: What Google Reader Alternate Did You Switch to?

Google Reader died sometime in the wee hours today, with not so much as a Google Doodle to remember it. Google’s leaving Reader’s data in Takeout export for 2 more weeks, but after that, Google Reader will be little more than a memory. It’s high time to move on, if you haven’t already.

We’ve rounded up the 5 best apps to help you move away from Google Reader, all of which are great options. But that’s not all. There’s tons of other RSS readers, including the brand-new Aol. Reader that our writer Justin loved, and many others that we’ve reviewed and that you’ve let us know in the comments that you love. Today, there’s an RSS reader app for everyone, whether you want to install an app on your own server (like Fever, which is what I switched to), would rather see your feeds as a magazine, or want something that is the perfect copy of Google Reader.

That’s why we’d love to know what RSS app you’ve switched to. Select your choice in the poll, then let us know why you chose that app in the comments below.


Add Yours
  • Tiny Tiny RSS so that way I never have to deal with anyone from a huge corporation to a one guy shop shutting down their service.

    • Good stuff, almost forgot about that one. Same rationale as my switching to Fever.

  • I just use Flipboard on my HTC One for the very little news I keep up with. (TUAW, 9to5mac, macrumors)

  • I decided on NewsBlur. I know Feedly is the darling nowadays, but I was a bit put off by the web UI. The service integration and app support are worthwhile, but reading in a web browser on my laptop is my primary use, for which I prefer NewsBlur. It doesn’t hurt that NewsBlur code is open source, so can be implemented outside of the service if need be.

    • I used NewsBlur for about 3 months immediately following the Google Reader shutdown announcement and I found the web interface to be excellent but the Android app to be much too slow for my needs.

  • AOL Reader for now. But I might switch to Fever in a few days

  • Prefered NewsBar for iCloud sync.

  • Reading this article with feedly 😉

  • InoReader. That’s how I got to this article. Feels like I never left Google Reader.

    • Neat, glad to hear that!

  • I’m using Feedly on the web, and waiting for the next version of Reeder to be finished for my Mac :)
