Google Reader, a popular tool which let users read a variety of news feeds from one central web application, has been shut down by Google, effective July 1. Have you ever used an RSS reader app or site?
No, I have not.
What was the point in telling us about Google. Just ask the question.
Me, too. Customizable, can read some content offline.
I didn't know about this. Now I have to find another reader that will work it's my reader app!!!
I use flipboard
My phone is jailbroken. I installed IntelliScreen X. It gives me one.
Come on, I'm a republican, right? I'm spoon fed from only FoxNews! J
I like Flipboard and Zite.
Never in my life lol....
Is it information control? Did the NSA tell Google to shut it down? Or did Google do it to avoid problems for itself or its users? The work of rogue elements or offices? Tune in tomorrow, same Bat time, same Bat channel...
I get all my news from SOH...
I use republican social services to get my food stamps. Do that count?
replaced Google Reader with Feedly - which I actually like more
I tried and hated it
I have an RSS app on my iPad that I use to see all the new movies available for streaming via Netflix.
That's cool! What's the app?
Tony, 2.1 question. It used to scroll down to a reply I'd just posted automatically, but now I have to thumb through all the way from the top again just to get back to where I was. Was this on purpose?
I have the same problem and the same question.
Not digging that change. Scrolling through 800 comments is not fun if you have a multi-part reply.
I'll answer for Tony since he's busy squashing bugs. It's a bug that snuck in with 2.1, and wasn't on purpose, and it's on the list to get fixed. I don't know where it falls on the priority list, but it has annoyed Tony too - I'm sure he's on it.
I HOPE it's just a bug and will get fixed.
I know it's not much help, but my work-around is to mentally note the time of the comment I'm replying to, to give me an idea of where I left off. Stay patient if you can, nobody wants it perfect more than Tony.
zod suck up
Thanks, Zod! I had pretty much assumed that, but it's nice to know for sure.
By the way, please note my new screen name. I used to be whoami18?
I was a heavy greader user. While I've replaced it with Feedly I still miss greader.
Why would they shut it down? Guess I should Google it...
And one more LOL!
Leave it to google to shut down one of my favorite services.
Oh nice... that was the only service that made it possible for a large segment of the work website I built to work properly. They suck.
I'm on Feedly now, seamlessly pulled from Google.
I use a couple of consolidator apps with a narrower focus than Google Reader (which I rarely used). NewsDesk, Zite, MacHash, Tech News, Politico Playbook. Since falling down the SOH rabbit hole, I don't get to them very often.
Just switched to Feedly and it's awesome. I highly recommend it & it pulls over your google stuff flawlessly.
I think I signed up for it but never got the hang of it so it went unused.
I do use the "reader" version of websites on my iPhone.
taken before your time.
I like Flipboard and Feedly.
Oh I check out mashable occasionally. So I guess. There must be some others I don't know about.
I love Mashable! Check them out for tech and social media news.
