I have been a loyal fan of Google Reader for a long time since Google has announced that it will be shutting down Google Reader on July 1, 2013. Fortunately, it's not the end of the world. There are a number of great news reading apps on the market and now we simply have to get used to the idea and find a new RSS reader replacement by July 1st. Today, we’re going to find the best News Reader replacement for Google Reader,taking into account that the service needed to be as close to Google Reader's feature set (syncing, multi-platform, web-accessible) as possible.
I have tried quite a few of them and my personal favorite is Feedly, which is available as a web app, just like Google Reader, but they also have apps for iOS and Android.
Now the feedly UI is custom tailored for a 4" phone, a 7" tablet and a 10" tablet. You will get an experience which is very close to a personalized magazine if you run feedly on a tablet.
2. Google Currents
Google Currents delivers beautiful magazine-like editions to your tablet and smartphone for high speed and offline reading. But you cannot follow your subscriptions on the computer or on devices where these apps are not supported. That’s quite a drawback.
Publisher editions: you can read full length, in-depth articles, videos, fine photography, and slideshows from Publishers such as Forbes, The Guardian, TechCrunch, PBS, Saveur, and more.
Google Currents uses Google search technology to deliver the hottest breaking stories in categories such as world, entertainment, sports, science, and more. As you travel to different countries, additional breaking stories are added to match your location. And Currents uses Google translate technology to translate editions into a preferred language of your choice. 44 languages are supported now.
