That much you probably know, but if you’re a Reader user have you found a replacement yet? Earlier, we gave you a look at five candidates for the job, and now we’re going to revisit the subject and see what else might be out there. TinyTinyRSS If you’re a do-it-yourselfer and into hosting your own website, you could self-host your own reader by grabbing the free open source TinyTinyRSS and using its Android client on your mobile device. RSS Owl and Feedreader If you don’t want to self-host, but don’t want to be completely reliant on someone else’s online service either, you could install a software-based reader like RSS Owl or Feedreader. News360, Flipboard, Google Currents and Pulse News360, Flipboard, Google Currents and Pulse all take RSS feeds and display them in a highly visual format. Unfortunately, you can’t load your own personal, hand-picked feeds into News360 or Currents. Feedly Feedly has gotten a lot of buzz and for good reason. You can pull your Google Reader feeds straight into it and it feels very similar to the interface you were used to. Old Reader Old Reader is my number one pick. It’s pretty much exactly what you got with Google Reader. Simplicity, no unneeded extras, and easy importing of your feeds. 3 Responses ab April 23, 2013 i like NetNewsWire app in mac & NetNewsWire iPhone too but lately they delete the iPhone app waiting for it to comeback they was great before Google reader which enforce us to use it because all new apps depend on it & it was bad because of problems connecting with my Google account p.s : i could not import my feeds from Google Reader too we want to save my feeds list how ? please put video for it barry hurton April 23, 2013 I didn’t know about the old reader! that’s cool! another good one is http://eldonreader.com Im using it since their beginning. its a good team with a pretty good product! Patrick April 22, 2013 I’m old fashioned, I guess. I normally read my RSS feeds in an email client (Evolution on Linux, Thunderbird or Windows Live Mail Desktop on Windows). I’ve checked out Feedly and Pulse.me, and initially wasn’t impressed with either of them. Like you (Cali), I didn’t like how Pulse shows the feeds (and you can’t change the views) plus I couldn’t figure out how to import my feeds from Google Reader (or other places). I haven’t really looked at Feedly, but will now that I know it can be configured more. Have a great day.:) Patrick. P.S. Now I’m wishing I had enough vacation to drive to Omaha. I’m only about four hours away, and my family lives there…. Ah well. Hopefully sooner or later, you’ll visit the Quad Cities area.
