Like most of you I was disappointed when google reader announced it was to close as I have been very happy with this tool for reading all the blogs I follow.
After several weeks of denial I listed the things I want from a reader; read through some lists of alternatives, looked at examples and made the switch last week to the old reader
It works for my tops wants:
* I can read the full post in the reader
* I can group blogs into categories
* the pictures are clear and load easily
* it is intuitive to use
There is no app for use on a tablet (yet) but that is not a problem for me as I hadn’t got into the habit of using my tablet to read blogs.
Transferring my list of blogs from google reader was a breeze and took less than 5 minutes.
It’s been working well so far so I can return to a state of not thinking about the architecture behind my daily blog catch up.
