Google announced that they will shutdown Google Reader, their RSS feed reader this summer. I’ve been using it for many years now, feeds and Blogs aren’t trendy anymore: the cool places to post content are social networks. I though about letting Reader go without finding a replacement. RSS feeds are a better source of quality content than social networks, but checking Reader every day takes between 10 to 20 minutes.
I still decided to look for an alternative, I briefly tried Newsblur demo. I didn’t like the interface: it felt a little bit too cluttered, and the site wasn’t working well when I tried it. Then I tried Feedly for a week, and so far I’m impressed by it. The interface is clean and minimal, while still providing all the things I had in Reader and more.
