The 8 best alternatives to Google Reader for iOS and Android

The 8 best alternatives to Google Reader for iOS and Android
Google Reader is dying, but that doesn't mean you are going to be cut off from the world. There are dozens of Google Reader apps and not all of them are going to simply disappear when Google shuts down Reader. Instead, there is likely to be something of a renaissance in the world of RSS readers, because there is a lot of competition about to happen. With that in mind, here are the 8 best alternatives to Google Reader.

We'll break it down into 3 categories to make it a bit easier. For the hardcore news junkies, the clear choice is NewsBlur, although Taptu is also a good option. For those looking for a more casual way to pull things together and may not necessarily need RSS options, there is Feedly, Google Currents, Flipboard, and Pulse News. And, for those who want news, but don't necessarily need a dedicated app, there's Twitter and Google+. 

Let's go a bit more in-depth on the choices:

I would like suggest another alternatives to google reader. Unlike ordinary RSS-readers, adds links from your Facebook and Twitter feeds, and also provides two kinds of custom filters to eliminate whole topics by keywords and exclude instagram photos and other media from your feed. It makes also all links you shared searchable. We have launched recently and glad to invite you to test!
