Google Reader Replacements

2013-06-28 09_48_50-The Old ReaderI’ve been using Google Reader since before Al Gore was born, but now that it’s nearing its death (Monday), it’s time to switch. I’ve tried a few alternatives over the past few months, and I’d like to make two recommendations:

2013-06-28 09_53_32-New TabEach is nicely designed, and each makes it easy (though Feedly is easier) to transfer your Google Reader feeds right over to a new system. Feedly has stronger mobile/app options, but The Old Reader has at least one UI feature that I miss in Feedly (an obvious visual indication that you have marked something as unread).

I don’t want to lose you old readers, so I urge both of you to check out these Google Reader replacements today, before Google Reader dies. For what it’s worth, my final choice has been Feedly.

    Did you just call me old? 🙂 Feedly is my choice as well, but I went kicking and screaming.
