I was a Google Reader user until they ditched the product in July 2013. I switched to NewsBlur and stuck with them until my Pro subscription was up earlier this year. NewsBlur has a great free account and for only $24/year you can upgrade to Pro.
Then, I tried feedly. I liked the interface on the web and found it a much more pleasing experience on my iPad. Here’s a quick run down on why I chose to pay more per year:
- OPML back up to Dropbox. Every time I make changes to what I read, I get an updated list synched to my Dropbox account
- I can quickly save article notes to my Evernote account
- One click save to Pocket
- One click publish to Buffer
I looked at a few others… Reeder, Outlook (yeah, I know… no snide comments!), etc. What have you tried and what do you currently use?
