Before Google Reader Goes Away... Try Feedly

As many of you know, Google is shutting down its popular Google Reader on July 1, 2013. I can't say that I'm happy about this as I'm still a fan of RSS feeds, but Google believes its resources should be spent elsewhere as people are using Twitter and other forms of social media to gather their news.

There are several alternatives for Google Reader, but I'm currently trying the news aggregator Feedly. According to the Feedly blog, more than 500,000 Google Reader users have migrated to Feedly in the last 48 hours. To handle the increased demand, Feedly has increased their bandwidth 10x and added new servers. My migration from Google Reader to Feedly was seemless and you have the option of several operating systems; iOS, Android, Chrome, Firefox, Safari.

The buzz about Feedly has been so great that their iOS app is now the top free app in Apple's App Store. You can also check out Feedly's Twitter account for information on features and software or try their blog or their uservoice forum.

Give Feedly a try and let us know your thoughts or share your review on an alternative aggregator!
