Feedly has been working really well for me. I like how it looks, especially the Cards view of your articles.
I never used a reader because I had too few blogs that I really followed. I decided to use Feedly and it works great for me. Not sure if I got Feedly because I had too many blogs to read, or if I'm reading so many blogs because I have Feedly.
Feedly. I switched about a month ago and its working well.
Right now I'm using Feedly, but I can't subscribe to twitter feeds. Has anyone else been able to see twitter feeds in Feedly?They say Digg is coming out with a reader soon and Facebook will be rolling out their own piece of crap shortly.Appreciate your thoughts re: feedly and twitter.
I'm using Bloglovin and I really like it.
I'm waiting on Digg's reader...considering they only have a week to get it out to the public and I haven't heard a peep about it in months, I'm scrambling to find a backup just in case. I haven't enjoyed feedly's iphone app.
commafeed. it's almost identical to googlereader.
Most recent newsreader programs were built around Google Reader, but I don't value the "sync across devices" functionality too much. I've switched over from Reeder (which relied on Google Reader) to NetNewsWire, which can sync with Google Reader but also can operate on its own. Syncing with Google Reader made it easy to get all of my feeds and starred articles into the program, and it should function without difficulty even when Google Reader ends. I prefer Reeder's user interface to NetNewsWire, but NetNewsWire will supposedly be receiving a major update at some point in the future.
I'll second bloglovin'. So far it works well for me.
Bloglovin for me :)
I don't even know what readers are. Usually I just google the blog names I like and read them. Am I living in the '90's and didn't know it? I think I read about four blogs regularly.
newsblur. Feedly was just...annoying.
Wrote this on another site: I’ve had feedly up and running for several weeks now, and tried NewsBlur, The Old Reader, and CommaFeed this weekend. I’m really not happy with any of them.I love the look/feel of The Old Reader and CommaFeed, but both are horribly slow — both in updating and in loading. The loading issue has made both pretty unusable.For a while, I thought I just had too many feeds; reading through comments on other sites tells me otherwise :). I’m somewhere around 70.I’m really hoping this gets fixed. I know those sites are experiencing a HUGE upswing in users.Newsblur has also been a little slow to load at times, but seems to update pretty frequently. Navigating through it is painful, though. I don’t like the split reading window and I can’t use my cursor keys to scroll down the article — I have to use the mouse. I don’t like using the mouse when the keyboard should suffice.NONE of those three seem to synch across devices, which is really annoying. Though it is hard to tell when it takes 15 minutes for the page to load (sometimes longer). My attention span isn’t all that long and I stop paying attention to what I’ve read.Some of these problems might be just figuring out how to set up the preferences correctly or a learning curve on how navigation is set up for that reader.Feedly really does seem to work well, but I have one major issue with it: I *need* to have the feed index with unread post counts in bold along the pane on the left. I don’t know why I seem to so badly need this feature, but missing it is causing me distress and is why I continue to search for a different google reader substitute. Feedly does have an index option, but it puts the index in the reading pane, and that is just wrong. It doesn’t belong there. It needs to be permanently displayed in the pane on the left.]I’ve played around with the preferences and haven’t figured out a way to get it set up that way. If anyone else has figured this out, please let me know!The other issue is that feedly’s moblie app is a pain. I had to uninstall it because it wouldn’t load. Hoping they fix that soon. On the plus side, the mobile reader app that I do use just updated to include feedly, so I might not lose anything there.For now, I’ll continue to use them all until I figure out which one I’m adapting to best. Or I find something else.
I"m depressed reader is going away. I use feedly - got app a few months ago and just now reluctantly using it on a daily basis since reader is going away (sigh). It's alright, just different. End of an era. My mobile app has always worked fine.I follow about 10-12 blogs, so I need a reader equivalent.
I read your blog on Mozilla Thunderbird. Since I'm travelling, it's easier to have all my emails and blogs in one place.
Hate that google reader is going away
I'm using theoldreader.com and I like it so far. Its the most similar to google reader...
