Google to shut down Google Reader
If you’re one of the users of Google Reader, like me, then it’s time to looks for a new feed subscription reader.
Google just announced that they are retiring their Google Reader service which will have its last of duty on July 1, 2013. They stated two reasons for doing so: declining usage activity and to pour their resources into fewer products.
If you want to retain your Reader data, including subscriptions, you can do so through Google Takeout.
It’s not just Google Reader that is getting the ax though. Included in their spring cleaning are Building Maker, BlackBerry support for Google Voice app, Cloud Connect, Apps Script’s GUI builder and UiApp widgets, Search API for shopping and the CalDAV API unless you’re a whitelisted developer.
So what reader will you be using next to replace Google Reader? Or what service would you suggest for those look for an alternative?
