Why I prefer Feedly to Google Reader

Posted on: June 14th, 2013

From July 1, you will no longer be able to read updates from your favourite blog posts or websites via Google Reader. That means you will need to find an alternative RSS feed if you want to continue accessing your favourite web pages from one place.

The one that lots of people are moving to is Feedly. I know most of us don’t like change but I switched over a couple of weeks ago and I think it’s far superior to Google Reader.

First of all, you can customise your Feedly page with different colours. Here’s my home page before I customised it and below you can see I have changed it to purple and pale green.

You can also view your pages in different ways, such as title only, magazine view, cards view or full article. Here is the magazine view, followed by the cards view.

There are different preference options you can set, such as which font you read the headlines in, which view is your default and so on.

I have yet to go through all the features of Feedly with a fine toothcomb, so here are some detailed reviews where you can see for yourself what others think of it.

Which RSS reader have you switched to? And what do you think of it?


By the way, iGoogle (which gives you your customized Google home page) is being phased out in November.
