This week Google announced they were closing Reader, and many of us news junkies panicked as we searched for another solution. We asked our audience, “What is the best alternative?“, and began searching for a new home to manage our feeds. I thought it would be a long journey or difficult transition, but then I discovered Feedly and I instantly fell in love.
Feedly operates in much the same way that Google Reader did, but it adds a ton of additional features and it does it with style. The web app and mobile clients are simply beautiful, and importing all my existing feeds only took a single click.
I’ve only been using the service for around 48 hours, but I can say with confidence that I will not be missing Google Reader. In fact, I’m a little pissed that I didn’t know about Feedly sooner.
If you are still in search of a Google Reader replacement, or just looking for an awesome news reader, I highly recommend heading over to Feedly.com right now and signing up. For those of you who are switching, be sure to check out Tips for Google Reader users migrating to Feedly.
