Feedly might be the Google Reader replacement

by Volker Weber

We have been working behind the curtains with the developers of Reeder,Press, Nextgen Reader, Newsify and gReader as design partners for our Normandy project[1]. Today we are excited to announce that you will be able to access your feedly from all these apps before Google Reader retires and that the access to feedly API will be free.

I'm super-happy with the newly updated Newsblur (www.newsblur.com). It's a website, so no apps to download or install. Definitely worth checking out.

I don't need a website. I need a backend.

Still trying to decide between this, Feed Wrangler, and Fever.

this is excellent news about Google Reader as I was waiting for a decent replacement while keeping reeder as my client.

Samuel Orsenne, 2013-06-03 23:37

But the most important question is: How do I pay for Feedly?

Andreas Fonferek, 2013-06-03 23:44

That's exactly my requirement. Right now I'm giving feedbin.me a good look. Not perfect, but seems to work well so far. The web interface has a nice keyboard interface, the import from Google Reader works and it's supported by Reeder. And it's got a business model that's not based on selling my data: $2 per month or $20 per year.

Newsblur looked good at first glance. but the limited support for 3rd party apps was a dealbreaker for me.

This is great news. They're building out the API and they're also getting rid of the requirement for plugins. At first, I debated between Newsblur and Feedly, and Feedly's biggest drawback was the lack of support for IE (as a corporate drone, I have to use it during the day). After this announcement, I should be able to use Feedly's service on any device I own and probably get a decent choice of front ends, too.

Oh, and they're going to let us pay for it. I say "let" instead of "make" - and I mean it, in part because they are aiming for an optional "Pro" version but mostly because I wanted a service provider with a business model that would make it less likely they would abandon their users (looking right at you, Google). Details TBD, but this all looks right from my perspective.

Switched to Tiny Tiny RSS (http://www.tt-rss.org/redmine/projects/tt-rss/wiki) when the retirement of Google Reader was announced. Never looked back.

TT-RSS is a self hosted solution running on my Synology NAS. Needs Apache, MySQL or PostgreSQL and PHP, pretty straightforward.

The frontend is the browser and there is a native Android app too.

If you are going to interact with the author: he is of a somewhat robust variety, you will need to take his answers with a grain of salt.

I have tried out http://rssly.de, they also use Tiny Tiny RSS. Seems to work quite well. Unfortunately the keyboard shortcuts are a bit different from Google Reader.

At the moment I don't really want to self-host.

@Robert Dahlem
Thank you for the hint - will give TT-RSS a try on my DS.

Wolfgang Flamme, 2013-06-04 12:58

Using TT-RSS in a self hosted setup ... works good enough ;-)

Sebastian Herp, 2013-06-04 20:20

I'm missing a good apps for TTRSS. Equal if OS X, iOS oder BB10. And with good I don't mean without costs.
