I’ve been using Reader daily for years, sad to see it go. :(

Does anyone use alternatives, what are they like?

A lot of Android & iOS apps too which will need to find new RSS API’s to integrate. Apparently Feedly is working on their own, and will switch to it when Google Reader officially closes.

Ok :) I understand why my thread was locked, because there is another thread opened about that subject.

Let me tell you that this forum sucks. Not the mods or the user or the staff, no, no, no, those are awesome :) but the forum app itself.

It sucks big time! You can’t follow and keep update on what happening here if you manage to miss 10 hours because you need to sleep.

Ok, now I’ve said this, what a liberating feel.

Was expected to happen something – a big update or shutting down – because was a service that had not updates like the rest of the stuff. Kinda sad.
