    2.5 Weeks to Google Reader Shutdown, what are people moving to?

    I make heavy use of ReederApp but I'm not tied to it. Anyone made the leap to a new RSS aggregation and synchronisation service that offers an API to apps?

    Currently experimenting with:

    1. Feedspot - A fast, free, modern Rss Reader
    2. The Old Reader
    3. Feedly. Your News. Delivered

    Not sure which of them I like most at the moment.

    Using the old reader. Only using it for my podcast feeds so it's fine for me. Wish I could find an android client though.

    Liking NewsBlur but my major bug bear is that they only keep last two weeks. That meant some feeds that I read every few weeks I would lose those posts. Tried old reader before but import did not work due to load etc. Might try it again and see how I go with it.

    It's settled down now. It was seriously creaky after the original announcement about Google Reader going away.

    There's a nice little suggested feeds button (top left on the browser version).

    Then the usual - Engadget, MacRumours, 9to5mac, lifehacker, etc..

    Feedly's interface was too weird for me. It'd use tiny tiny rss if I had a hosting account going spare so it's the Old Reader for now. As above, needs an android client.

    The State of Google Reader Replacements

    Before Google Reader shuts down on Monday, I think the following caveat about Feedly is worth highlighting.

    While Feedly is a great, easy drop-in replacement for Reader, there’s one big caveat: it does not export. Once you're in Feedly, there’s currently no way out. (All the more reason to save your Google Reader export!) The developers of Feedly have stated on Twitter that OPML export is on the roadmap. However, we encourage taking developer promises with a grain of salt, as it’s always possible that export will never be added. In theory, you could export your subscriptions from a third-party client, but that isn't yet a reality.
    To export your RSS subscriptions from Google Reader visit the URL below before 1st July.

    Code:
    http://www.google.com/reader/subscriptions/export

    Certainly. RSS does its job. What do you use instead of RSS?
