Best Google Reader Alternatives as of June 2013

In the next few days, Google Reader will be shut down officially on July 1st, 2013 (Canada Day). So I wanted to share some of the Best Alternatives to Google Reader and the Best RSS Readers out there, some were included in the Best Apps of 2012 . 



Feedly (Android/ iOS / Web)

This is the best of the best and most popular RSS readers out there, Feedly has a clean UI for their web app and that continues onto their mobile apps. Feedly also makes it very easy to migrate your Google Reader stuff to Feedly or other RSS readers (Press, gReader etc.)

Feedly Android App

Feedly Web Interface

 Download Feedly : Play Store iTunes Web


Pulse (Android/ iOS / Web)

Pulse is partly a RSS reader, they mostly rely on their own new algorithms to help find stories that might interest you. I personally use Pulse a lot to check up on the latest tech news, and they have a bunch of different sources that you can choose from.

Flipboard (Android and iOS)

Flipboard has similar functionality to Pulse but this is heavily focuses on a magazine design. You can add in your Facebook and Twitter and Google+ accounts to share interesting new stories, and you can link it to Pocket to “read it later” (get it because Pocket use to be called Read It Later). It does sync with Google Reader if you so desire but it will put all of your feeds into one section and that isn’t such a great idea. It’s a beautiful reader but don’t bother trying to sync your Google Reader to it.

There are many more Google Reader and RSS Readers out there but that’s all for now and Good Luck searching for one that works for you
