I just found out that Google Reader will be discontinued July 1, 2013. This is very disappointing news for me, as I've been a loyal Google Reader user for a very long time.
As someone who flits about from one gadget to another, I've been surprisingly unchanging when it comes to Google Reader - it just worked. It also integrated with quite a number of other tools I'm attached to, such as Reeder and Buffer. Reader was the center of my news watering hole universe, and one of the key ways I shared content with other people.
But, alas, Google Reader is going away.
I'm now looking for a solid alternative, preferably one that:
- works in a browser;
- works on my iOS devices;
- works on my lone Android device;
- integrates with Buffer; and
- *very important* - syncs across devices so I don't have to re-read stories I've already read.
If you have any good tools for news aggregation that you feel may fit the bill, please let me know. I'll post about the ones I like most as I discover them.
