Hello All, Just wanted the thoughts and opinions of those out there about the future of RSS Reader apps, like Feedler Pro, EZ feeds, NewsIfy and others, given the fact google will no longer be supporting google reader as of July of this year. Since most of these RSS readers require a google reader account to sink content and such, what will happen with these applications? I really love Feedler Pro and use it multiple times a day to stay informed as I do not watch television what so ever. Any thoughts and opinions are greatly appreciaited as this discussion will help me to decide what to do when July roles around. Thank you in advance. -Andrew-
I'm sure that a number of alternatives will emerge over the coming weeks and months. And, in fact, one has already landed in my podcast feed!
One of the podcasts I follow is called Developing Perspectives. It's hosted by David Smith, the developer of Check The Weather, and focuses on all aspects of developing apps for the iOS platform (a recent interview with Marco Arment was a particularly interesting listen).
But, back to the point ... in a podcast and blog post, David reports that he has already been working on an alternative to Google Reader called Feed Wrangler.
Considering that he has previously demonstrated a commitment to accessibility, this might be a project for us RSS junkies to keep an eye on.
there are not so many alternatives
