News reading apps like Digg Reader and Feedly rise as Google kills off Reader


All these Google Reader users will have to go out and search for a replacement, if they didn’t already did so. While there are many online RSS reader applications out there most of existing Google Reader users will most likely go after Digg Reader or Feedly.

Betaworks released yesterday Digg Reader to the public. The company promised the RSS reader in March shortly after Google announced it will pull the plug on Google Reader. The launch was few days behind schedule but still before deadline. The hyped service which has been in beta for about a week is now publicly available after all that testing and scaling.

Digg Reader is available on iPhone and iPad as an application and for all the other devices directly on web.

On the other hand Feedly has both an iOS and Android app. It looks almost identical to Google Reader and integrates well with lots of social networks including sites like Pinterest. It has been around for a while and many Google Reader users already made the switch to Feedly.
