With Google shutting down its RSS aggregation platform Google Reader in July, several companies (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/03/15/zite-announces-google-reader-alternative/) have pledged to build a better reader, with existing news aggregator Feedly (http://www.feedly.com) among them.

Soon after the shutdown announcement, Feedly revealed that it had developed a clone (http://blog.feedly.com/2013/03/14/google-reader/) of the Google Reader API called Normandy, which got it instant attention from former Google Reader users. Less than a month later, Feedly has garnered more than three million new users, prompting the company to release a significant update (http://blog.feedly.com/2013/04/02/announcing-the-new-feedly-mobile-and-welcoming-3-million-reader-refugees/) to its iOS app.

Version 14 made all the difference.

All I can say: thank you for the option to sort by oldest.

Stupid Flipboard.

Yes, I switched from Reeder to Feedly once google made the announcement since I didn't hear anything back from the Reeder developer about future plans. I tried a few readers, but I liked Feedly a lot compared to others like flipboard. I still like Reeder and both Reeder and Feedly have tons of good features. Still slightly prefer Reeder (especially since they also have a desktop app) - but this is probably mainly because I am so used to Reeder.

Reeder made it official that Feedbin will be the first service to get support. More services will be supported down the road.

After using Feedly for a bit it seems as though it ONLY works with a Google Reader account. So what happens when Google Reader goes away?

Well that was their whole point. They have built a backend to take over the feeds once Google goes down. I image there will be some others stepping up with solutions since the shutdown is a few months away yet. Feedly does look very good. The main thing is that you can't add feeds from ios but then most google reader clients required going into google reader to manipulate feeds. Google reader was a nasty looking piece of code, hence all of the 3rd party solutions for clients.

Feedly is simply great. Better than Flipboard, in my opinion.
