Feedly syncs directly to Google Reader for now, and will migrate your feeds off google reader when the time comes. They have a post simplifying the transition from Google Reader to feedly. Feedly runs in the browser and on various mobile devices. It supports categories for feeds like Google Reader. It supports j and k keyboard shortcuts for navigating ...

Both Lifehacker and CNET have been quick to dump out some options for alternatives. I think in terms of reading on the web and on mobiles (all the below have Android and iOS apps) the best options are: Feedly - Probably the most popular alternative, syncs directly to Google Reader for now. Main downside is that using it on the web requires installing a ...

If you don't mind self-hosting it, or finding someone who will, Tiny Tiny RSS is a Free Software web application with a similar look and feel of GReader. It comes with a mobile web UI and there are 3rd party native apps that interface with it.

I just found Old Reader which purports to be "like Google Reader was back when it was good". It can import OPML files from Google Reader, has the same keyboard shortcuts, and seems to work pretty similarly. I'm about to try it out, and will post back once I get some impressions of it.

You need to go to Google Takeout (https://www.google.com/takeout) and select Google Reader and do an export. The zipped file you download contains a fairly comprehensive export of your Google Reader settings: followers.json following.json liked.json notes.json shared-by-followers.json shared.json starred.json subscriptions.xml (an OPML file)

I am surprised that no one has mentioned Calibre - an ebook management tool. It also has capabilities for downloading RSS feeds and converting them into epubs or another format of your choice. Calibre is available on android but I don't think is available on iOS. However, there are ways to get around it. Calibre can be left running as a background process ...

The Google+ Buttons Policy states: Publishers may not attempt to discover the identity of a Google+ Button user unless the user consents to share his or her identity with the Publisher via a Google-approved authorization procedure. I don't think you can see a list of people that clicked the +1 Button. "Publicly +1 this" means that anyone who can see your ...

Another open source self-hosted alternative would be selfoss by Tobias Zeising. I've just set it up and it works well for my few feeds. With the end of Google Reader, activity seems to have shot up and you can import your feeds from Google Reader.

Feedly is still your best bet, imo. If you don't want to disclose the information you listed, you're out of luck. I now use Feedly constantly, and I think it's the best replacement so far. fast mobile apps browser plugins + native still syncs with GReader once Google Reader is killed, Feedly promises to take over with their own Normandy system looks great ...

http://www.google.com/reader/atom/user/-/state/com.google/reading-list?n=3 for 3 items; the number can be upto 1000. For the next set of items after that you need to use the continuation parameter found near the beginning of the feed (gr:continuation -> 'c=...' in the URL), so then in the form of http://www.google.com/reader/atom/user/-/state/com.google/...

I found the perfect Chrome Extension - adds "Share on Google Plus" in Reader. Here's the link. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cngpndgifehgejmkemnmmiknpafnhpec Works a charm for me.

BazQux is very good for me: http://bazqux.com/ It also have nice feeds import from Google Reader

Click the Subscribe button Paste in the link to the feed. In your case: http://www.javaworld.com/community/node/1390/feed Click 'Add' to complete the process.

After Google Reader turned out the lights, I experimented with a long string or RSS readers and aggregation systems. I eventually settled on Feedly and tried to camp out there. While the interface is polished and it does most things well, after a couple weeks I was frustrated with how little customization could be done. Adding feeds from mobile was also a ...

Google Reader doesn't have an official API at present. Various sources have suggested that one is/was intended, but seven years on there is still nothing. Currently everyone is using the 'unofficial' API - a reverse engineering of the various AJAX calls the Google Reader web app makes. As with the recent sudden disappearance of the unofficial Google ...

While we're waiting for a native way to do this, someone found the URLs to use to make a customized "Send to" solution. Source: ReadWriteWeb Go to Google Reader, click the gear icon, and choose 'Reader settings' Click the 'Send To' tab Scroll down all the way and click 'Create a custom link' Enter the following into the fields that appear: Name: Google+ ...

Google Reader now also supports extra export options. If you go to Reader Settings and then the Import/Export tab, you'll see links that let you download items you've starred in a couple JSON-based formats. They aren't terribly readable by themselves, although you can figure out where links are with a simple text editor, but if you have another RSS program ...

I'm experimenting with Pulse and am so far moderately impressed: The UI is a thing of beauty, but the user experience is quite different from Google Reader and importing your Reader feeds with the web version of the app is not possible. They claim to have a very simple import function to grab your Reader feeds in the mobile version though, which I haven't ...

Just as Google says, give a tag like 'unread' to all items you are going to read later, and press gt to select the 'unread' tag, done. Once read, change the tag from 'unread' to 'read' to keep a record of what you have read.

I wanted to do the same thing a couple of days ago, so I put together this simple script: https://code.google.com/p/getgrfeed/ The script can be used to download the entirety of a single feed stored in Google Reader. For instance, if I wanted to dump the feed for BoingBoing, I'd run it like this: $ python getgrfeed.py http://feeds.boingboing.net/boingboing/...

With the recent changes to Google Reader, this is now possible. You can either click the +1 button at the bottom of an item and optionally add a comment, or you can click in the Share... field at the top right corner of the window. The Share... field lets you share without adding the item to your +1 list.

This post on StackOverflow describes the API Google Reader uses to get those subscriber details in its AJAX. It should be noted though that this is meant to be used internally by Google Reader rather than the general public, so is subject to change or removal without notice (much like the Google Weather "API" that disappeared a few days ago). Feedburner ...

I eventually just removed them manually. The quickest process I found for doing so was: Visit http://www.blogger.com/manage-blogs-following.g and log into your Google account if not already. Click on the Settings link next to one of the blogs in the list Don't click on Stop following this site in the window that pops up. Instead, click on the Sites you've ...

This IFTTT recipe gets you most of the way there. You just need to tag all of the feeds from which you want this email alert with a particular tag. (Since feeds can have multiple tags, you could tag all of them if you want.)

According to the Feedly blog it will work after the Google Reader shutdown: Google announced today that they will be shutting down Google Reader. This is something we have been expecting for some time: We have been working on a project called Normandy which is a feedly clone of the Google Reader API – running on Google App Engine. When Google Reader ...

I'm sure this is not possible at the time of writing. The best thing you can do is to remove any reference to the link you can find, now that Google Reader moved away from Shared Items (to Google+), I think Google won't link to that page anymore themselves either. So if you remove all references you know of, I doubt if anyone will ever reach that page again....

I just noticed that that happened to me yesterday. I don't know what caused it. I don't mind it, but to undo, try this: Go to Google Reader overview page http://www.google.com/reader/view/#overview-page Go to the little cog wheel on the left. Click it and select Settings from drop-down menu. You'll get a screen with tabs, that I don't recall seeing ...

You can't selective choose which feeds are excluded from the "All Items" stream. You can, however, tag feeds with multiple tags. So, if you organize your feeds by topic, e.g. Technology Movie Stars Cooking How about also organizing by importance? You can use tags like Read daily Read when I have nothing else to do Read only when desperate All Items ...

Blogs I'm following is a rather new feature. That's probably the reason it's not in the Android app yet. For the settings, Blogs I'm following is a special folder maintained by Google Reader itself, so you are probably not allowed to change anything about it.
