Feedly has changed my life!

March 20th, 2013

Well perhaps not changed my life, but I have to tell you that last weeks announcement from Google,thatReader, their RSS aggregate was joining the scrap heap in a few months, I was extremely worried! With over 100 blogs working away productively on our campus, not to mention all my travel, cooking, technology, education blogs……what was I to do? Three real contenders kept popping their head up….Good ol Netvibes, The Old Reader and Feedly. I never got into Netvibes…..several reasons why, and none of them really valid. It has come a long way from its early days, especially when you see it being used like AISB Budapest. I love it, but to move quickly through blogposts, I liked Google Reader.

I quickly signed up for The Old Reader, but importing my bookmarks, seemed like an extra step…..this is where Feedly is going to really win people over….sign in with your google account and BAM…all your subscriptions are already there.

I am enjoying the suggestions too of other sites I should look at, and I think I have found another reason not to take my laptop home and just use the ipad…..The ipad app is sensational…it comes close to 5 out of 5. The layout is great and the read later/saved items works well. I like the Mark as Read through swiping too……On the web version I find the extra step of having to Mark as Read a little annoying….but I just have to get use to that….and the iphone app is just as good. My only complaint is… I’d love articles to be sent to my Evernote.

Give it a go….If you don’t use a reader…let’s sit down and chat. I think you will find yourself getting through a lot more work..checking kids blogs, and of course finding the latest and greatest recipes to cook for your wife!
