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 can now on a item-by-item basis. The quickest way is using the keyboard shortcuts n to select the next article in the current feed and then m to toogle read status to unread.

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. 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 ...

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 ...

Feature to mute categories from the main feed doesn't exist (vote here). Currently the only choice is to use 'Mute Filters' to create a temporary mute for individual websites on all feeds. You can pause it at any time if you want to access the muted feed. Please note, that this is a Feedly Pro feature. Click on "Filters" on the left navigation bar. Add a ...

You can try RSS Mix I have used it and I'm very satisfied and happy with it.

This is Petr from Feedly. This is, unfortunately, something we experience often with Craigslist. We are still in attempts to resolve this with Craigslist directly at the moment, unfortunately, they are a very difficult entity to communicate with. What happens is that we have to poll for new articles to their servers and since there are so many users of ...

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 ...

If I understand what you want correctly, you want to implement "paged search results" in a Atom/RSS feed. I don't think this type of thing is widely implemented, but there is a proposed standard (via Amazon.com) at OpenSearch.org—look specifically at the OpenSearch response elements.

You could try using this Zapier Zap which creates an RSS feed of any users YouTube video feed. You just need to sub in the users YouTube username and Zapier will create the RSS feed you can put in your RSS feed. You can easily substitute the RSS feed in Zapier for other form of notification too like email, sms, instant message, etc.

You could build "recipes" on IFTTT linking Feed channels (RSS feeds from the blogs you want to follow) to your Facebook account with the Facebook channel. Otherwise, you could also use dlvr.it... !

I found a solution using Feedspot RSS Reader. It offers a 1 year 'pro' trial that allows me to create a unique RSS Feed URL for a folder that can contain multiple RSS feeds. This feed URL in turn can be fed to Blogtrottr to receive daily digests from multiple RSS feeds in just one email.

The hackish way to do it is to use the built in developer tools of a browser like Firefox with the Web Developer extension or Chrome with the built in Developer Tools. In Chrome for example: Open up Feedly Go to View -> Developer -> Developer Tools This will bring up the Developer Tools bar at the bottom of your browser window. Then hover over any of ...

The 406 seems to stem from a user agent error that my server doesn't seem to like. # venus uses httplib2 underneath import httplib2 h = httplib2.Http() resp, content = h.request("http://ankursinha.in/blog/feed/", headers={'user-agent': 'trolololololol'}) works just fine. I'm still uncertain if the issue is in httplib2 or some server configuration, but ...

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!

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 ...

As to any existing reader which will understand this? Probably not out of the box, but Awasu is easily extendable, and can understand Atom/RSS extension namespaces/elements via Metadata Modules, look under the "Advanced Features" section of the help. I've even created a couple Metadata Modules to extract geographical and earthquake data embedded in feeds, ...

I'm not sure if/when Trello will ever implement RSS feeds, so I went ahead and made a small web app that will generate them for you. It should work with either public or private boards (if you give it an auth token). The source is on GitHub if you want to fork it and make your own changes, and here's a Trello board for it as well.
