So Google decided to shutdown Google Reader which I’ve been using for years and I’m very happy with it. Since my personal domain is on Google Apps, I find it useful to get Single Sign On, I always keep it as a pinned item in Chrome and I like the fact that when I mark it as read on my iPhone/iPad, it gets marked as read on all my devices.
So I’m trying to find an alternative since they will be shutting down on 1st July 2013. Because sorry Google, I don’t share your opinion that most people have started using Twitter, Facebook and whatnot to follow news 🙂
So I found The Old Reader which states: “It’s just like the old google reader, only better.” Sounds too good to be true so I gave it a test.

Adding your first feed
Importing from Goolge Reader
Ok, next step is to import all my current feeds from Google Reader since I really don’t want to add them hundreds manually again.
