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:
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 ...
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.
browser plugins + native
still syncs with GReader
once Google Reader is killed, Feedly promises to take over with their own Normandy system
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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/...
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've not yet found a reader that does the full history import.
An alternative to export Google Reader through the take out link: https://www.google.com/takeout/#custom:reader
You have to start all your history first (I've done this for the blogs that are not there any more, it was a tedious process, but it works).
Now for some tool that can process the ...
After a bit of looking around I found the answer myself:
Feedly blog: Migrating your tagged articles from Google Reader to feedly
Unfortunately it's not fully automated and you have retype some of them yourself.
This is kind of a self-ad, but another alternative (especially if you are looking for a self-hosted option) is ownCloud News app. Check my blog post for more details: http://algorithmsforthekitchen.com/blog/?p=479
Unlike ordinary RSS-readers, LikeHack adds links from your Facebook and Twitter feeds, and also provides two kinds of custom filters to eliminate whole topics by keywords and exclude instagram photos and other media from your feed. It makes also all links you shared searchable.
We have launched recently and glad to invite you to test!
Go to this link:
This produces an XML file that contains all of your starred items. There is no need to make your items public to do this. There is no need for pagination or continuation tricks. The XML file contains the complete content for each item; not just a link.
See that "...
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
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.
How about also organizing by importance? You can use tags like
Read when I have nothing else to do
Read only when desperate
All Items ...
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.)
Google Reader channel, New item tagged trigger
Gmail channel, send an email action
For every new item in Google Reader with a ...
