Feedly – The Google Reader Alternative I Choose For Now

Since I posted yesterday, Google Reader Shutdown And Finding an Alternative, I have read a little more about alternatives.


I finally decided to try Feedly, based upon Micheal Hyatt’s Google+ post, and the comments to it:

For those of you who are not on Google+, this is the link to his blog post:

When I went to the Feedly site, I first checked out their Transitioning from Google Reader to Feedly blog post and comments.

I added the Feedly extension to Chrome, and installed the Feedly apps to my smart phone and Nexus 7.

Feedly Experience Today

It linked up quickly and well with my Google Reader on all three.

It will take a little getting used to, and setting up my preferences to get it to work the way I want, but so far I like it through the Chrome extension, but with the smart phone and Nexus 7 not so much. Maybe, I just need to experiment a little more with the Android devices.

What About You?

Have you settled on a Google Reader alternative yet?

If you have and it is not Feedly, what did you settle on and why?
