When Google announced that it was shutting down Google Reader in July 2013, this sparked the chance for many other RSS feed readers to finally have a chance to grow from under Google’s shadow. Half a year later, Feedly has emerged from the pack as one of the most popular free RSS readers out there now.
Getting started on Feedly is simply, just click on the big green button on their welcome page.
After that you have 2 main methods to populate the reader:
1. Upload an OPML file (this file can be exported from Google Reader or other RSS readers containing all your RSS feeds)
2. Paste the links of the websites you would like to follow and Feedly will automatically try to retrieve the website’s feed and add it.
If you would like to get it visually close to Google Reader, set the default view to be “Titles only” in the Preferences.
Feedly is also available in a variety of apps for iOS, Android, Mac OSX, Windows, etc.
