Google Reader Alternatives

If you hadn’t yet heard the news, Google Reader announced it would be shutting its doors on July 1st. The thought of not being able to scroll through your favorite blogs on Google Reader probably sent you into a panic! Worry no more, because each Thursday through the end of June we will offer great alternatives to Google Reader here on the MFT Blog.

Today we will be focusing on Feedly.

Like Google Reader, Feedly gives you a way to organize and read the content of all your favorite sites. It is very user friendly and is available with free software for Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. Simply download the free software and it will automatically migrate your existing reading list over to Feedly in a matter of minutes.

Feedly allows you to easily customize the way you view your feed.  The two examples shown below are the Cards View and Full Article View. The other two (not listed here) are Magazine View and Title Only View.

    Feedly is by far my favorite reader among all I tried, including Bloglovin. I migrated 2 months ago and have been enjoying Feedly even more than Google Reader. What I liked most is that Feedly imported all my folders which is not possible with Bloglovin, and I can see full blog posts without having to open a new window (in Bloglovin you only see a preview of the post).
    Hope this is helpful!

    I explored a number of blog readers over the last few months and definitely settled on Feedly. I’ve had no problems at all. Two small things – they just did an update yesterday that moved the Add Content button to the “left” side. AND…they also have an iPad app, not just iPhone!!
