As Google Reader will shutdown in the 1st of July, we need an alternative. The social news site Digg wants to take advantage of Google Reader’s shutdown and builds a Reader.
But for now, the closest to Google Reader is Feedly. There are many users that migrated from Google Reader to Feedly, since Google announced that it closes the reader. Feedly has almose the same keyboard shortcuts as Google Reader and offers support for Android and iOS, so it could become the best feedreader alternative. Also, importing your Google subscriptions to Feedly is available.
For now, Feedly is free but the company is planning on offering premium services with advanced features, for users who pay a monthly / anual subscription.
Unity-webapps-feedly will add your Feedly feeds in the Ubuntu Messaging Menu:
