Feedreaders: Anyone Know A Good One Yet?

I’m sure you’ve heard about Google saying they will shut down Google Reader come July. Which sucks. Which is also silly, because way fewer people use Google+ (yes, it is still active.) So, I need a new reader by then.

So far, Bloglines, Feed Reader, Feedly, Netvibe, and so many others are failing. Most are not updating promptly. Now, that could be due to the influx of new users. Have to try them in a month or so.

Most do not sort alphabetically. With Bloglines and Netvibe (virtually one and the same), I can manually move the links around to be alphabetical.

What I need is one that is almost real time. Like Google Reader does. That’s a must have. And I’d like one that can be linked to an Android app, but that is not a must have, just a like to have. I’d prefer one that is web based.

Without a good reader, I can tell you that my Sunday Pinup post will end, at least with all the links, because it would go from an hour,   hour and a half tops to 2-3 hours or more.

Any good ideas?

Well that’s awesome. I guess I do remember reading that. All my favorite blogs feed through Google reader. No point in voicing concerns to Google, they don’t really care.

@usadmiral if feedly feeds off google reader, (please correct me if I’m wrong, I’m not very tech savvy)…once google reader is gone, won’t the feed be as well?

Feedly says it has a support feature called Normandy for when Google goes down. If you have signed in with your google reader subscription or ID then it will save it when google reader finally bites the dust. I hope this helps.

So far I’ve tried Feedly and Feedreader. Feedly is all right on a browser but the Android app is driving me crazy. Feedreader is a stand alone program with a built in browser(has an option to open feeds in your default browser) and is supposed to have a online reader, but I cant figure it out. So that is driving me crazy. The stand alone program I kinda like. It gets feeds almost as fast as google reader(Some faster some slower),but no Android app that I can find.

I tried Feedly, but it doesn’t allow for alphabetical lists, which I really need to do my Sunday pinup post. It’s also kinda slow on updating many feeds. Though, that might just be an issue with so many saying “screw you, Google!” and trying readers out. I was hoping it would be good for Android.

I can’t figure Feed Reader online, either. I might try the app, though.

@usadmiral, yes, it does, thanks,
Feedly has a nice interface, the more I’ve used it and learned how to navigate it, it seems to be OK so far.

My favorite is ‘RSS ticker’ for Firefox. One click opens a tab to everything in your feed list. Or if that’s not your style, you can click them individually or dismiss them.

I’m ADHD or something because I really like to open them all, create 2-300 tabs, and click them off in rapid order if they’re not interesting.

A Tune You Know

A long long time ago
I can still remember how that content used to make me smile
And I knew if I had the time I could check those feeds of mine
And maybe feel informed, just for a while
But March 13 it made me shiver with every feed that was delivered
Bad news on the front page I was filled with blind rage

I can’t remember if I cussed
When I read I should use Google Plus
Twitter made the biggest fuss
The day the Reader died

And we were tweetin’
Bye bye aggregator in the sky
I really need to check my feed but the Reader’s gone dry
Those good ol’ boys shared petitions and cries, tweetin’
This’ll be how RSS dies
This’ll be how RSS dies
