AOL Reader to launch beta on Monday

AOL Reader to launch beta on Monday
With Google Reader expected to shut down on July 1st, other companies are jockeying for position in an attempt to pick up the many Google Reader users who will need a replacement. AOL is throwing its hat into that ring by introducing AOL Reader beta on Saturday. The service promises to gather "all your favorite websites, in one place." Those requesting an invitation will be able to use their AOL sign-in information, or sign-in via Google, Facebook or Twitter. AOL Reader will be made available as an Android app at some point in the future.

AOL Reader will be available for use on phones, tablets, desktops and laptops and AOL will start accepting invitation requests on Monday. If you're moving over your Google Reader feed, you will need to use an OPML file. This makes another alternative like Feedly seem much easier to consider. Feedly has already captured 3 million converts from Google Reader since the latter announced that it would be closing. With slightly more than a week left until Google Reader shuts down, now is the time for you to decide where to get your RSS feeds from.
