are you sure? i thought it wasn't until july.

as a side, i'm noticing some buggy behaviour with reader. it wouldn't surprise me if it was intentional to get user to move sooner rather later.

I got a notice when I logged in about July 1st within the past few days.

Ditto on that, SweetT. I'm using it for a public feed for the Vida blogs because Feedly won't be offering the possibility of 'sharing' a feed, and I played around with a bunch of other options, but this was still the easiest for folks.

Does anyone know if there's a way to put my starred posts anywhere? Even if I end up not using that to read blogs, I have loads of posts starred that I would like to keep.

That's really gonna screw up VeganMoFo come October, won't it?

If you use Feedly your starred posts are found under "Saved For Later".

Thanks. I am not able to use Feedly unless they produce a version which doesn't need a plug in.

I was happy they had a plug-in so I could use it on my Kindle, but yes, it *would* be much easier if the darn thing would just open in a browser. I spent over 15 minutes yesterday (while nursing a 101 degree fever and and grasping a handful of tissues - darn spring cold!) doing Google searches, history searches, going batty trying to figure out WHERE the sign-in page was before my son reminded me it was a plug-in/app. That's when I closed the Kindle and went back to sleep for another hour.

Has anyone tried Inoreader? It seems to have everything I want and has imported my folders and starred items very quickly!

Digg is supposed to be releasing a reader next week, I'm going to hold out hope that it will be like Google. I also heard Facebook is working on one, but I've already got enough FB in my life that I sure as hell don't want anymore.

Digg’s Google Reader alternative is on its way

I've moved on to Feedly. It looks enough like Google Reader and uses the same keyboard shortcuts. I'm not thrilled about needing to install a browser plugin to use it, but I don't use unfamiliar computers often enough for it to affect me. Also, the transition from Google Reader to Feedly was basically seamless.

When it was first announced that Google Reader was going away, I switched to Feedly but it kept crashing Firefox. I alternated between Bloglovin and Netvibes accounts for a few weeks, then tried Feedly again and it's working just fine. I like that you can easily switch the way articles are displayed (you can even use different display modes for different categories), plus it allows you to download podcasts without having to visit the actual webpage (unlike Bloglovin). It also looks clean and streamlined. It's sometimes a pain to add a new feed, but on the whole I'm pretty happy with it.

I switched to Feedly a few months ago. I like it better, mostly. It's definitely prettier. I miss having a subscribe button in my bookmarks bar (can you do that with Feedly and I'm just stupid?), but otherwise I have no complaints. I've only had problems with one or two feeds and I think it's the feeds themselves and not Feedly.

Definitely, the clean interface is a huge plus. I tried out Newsblur. That thing was really complex. Feedly feels like an improvement on Google Reader.

I've been enjoying Feedly. Since it works through Gmail, it was simple to transition (and I'm glad starred/bookmarked articles are saved). The iPad app is great- so much better than the Reader app and the third-party apps I tried.

i also switched to feedly and have been using it since.
the only thing that bothers me is the option to save a post to read later is at the top of the post instead of the bottom like in greader. annoying but minor quibble.

I like feedly, but it seems like every time I log in, something has changed. Like it either just looks different or all of a sudden I have to adjust settings that I had already set, and can't find where to do that because they moved it. I'm sure they're busy though and still working things out, and aside from being a little lost sometimes I do like it! I like the Pinterest integration option too.

I think they just (like minutes ago) released the version of feedly that doesn't require a download.

i keep forgetting about this, and then panicking all over again. i did import everything to feedly, but my bigger problem is that my preferred reader is actually an app called reeder (i have it on my mac, my iPad, and my iPhone), and right now it only populates from google reader OR some other thing you have to pay for every month (which i don't plan on doing).

http://reederapp.com

i really really really hope they figure something out with feedly, because i don't want to give up my awesome wonderful happytimes reeder app. right now, while they figure this out, the mac version and the iPad version are free, so if you're curious you can check it out and then whine along with me.

Yes! They released Feedly Cloud, I'm so happy I don't have to download anything.

A question about feedly. I've been using it for a few weeks now with no problem. Today when I clicked on it, I have been logged out and it is insisting I have to use a google account to log in. Is feedly only accessible through google? It wants to access google info and I don't want it to do that, but it won't accept any other log in.

at this time, you have to login with a google account in order to use feedly because how else would feedly know which blogs you subscribed to in google reader without access to your google account? This is how feedly automatically imports all your blog feed for you otherwise you would have to do it manually (which is not an option, I don't think).
it's a little creepy but honestly it's no worse than downloading an app on a smartphone.
