WTF! What reader do you use?
Yes, very disappointing. I think I suffered the same shock when bloglines disappeared. How are we going to keep up without GR? I just read though that there are a lot of other readers out there...
I just ran across this too -- surprised!!! We'll have to watch for suggestions for alternatives.Jeanne
USA Today has an article about four alternatives - obviously, time for a LOT of us to do some due diligence!
my sentiments exactly! let me know when you find another. It was traumatic enuf switching from bloglines and google is so convenient.
Horrible, no? I'm trying out Feedly as recommended by cnet as being a good alternative to Google Reader. So far it's okay. Another article recommended netvibes but they only let you have 64 free subscriptions, for more you have to pay a monthly fee.
If you search for "google Reader replacement," you'll find a lot of lists, suggestions and directions on how to move your subscriptions. Count me among the disappointed. I also used to use iGoogle as my homepage--it's going away, too, but at least there was more notice about it.
I've been using Feedly on my iPad so thought I'd try out the web version. Hmmm...I don't like the web version as well as the tablet app, but it will do. Here's a link to a feedly post that my DS sent to me. http://blog.feedly.com/2013/03/14/google-reader/
I am going to test a few of them and see what I like best but I'm not going to make a quick decision. I expect to see some new options before July.
I just swapped to Bloglovin. Absolutely love it . It was an easy transmission too. Google it.
