gReader adds support for Feedly Cloud in latest update, now available on Google Play

gReader banner

As the closing of Google Reader draws near (July 1st, folks), I’d imagine you’ve already found a replacement. For those that ended up in Feedly’s arms but maybe were missing that old Google Reader look — gReader might be your new best friend.

gReader for Android

The app has just received an update in the Play Store that enables Feedly Cloud support. This gives Feedly users another alternative to the official Feedly app (I’ll admit, it’s a bit flashy). The best part? gReader’s killer podcast support remains intact. If you haven’t gotten the chance, you can give gReader a download right now via the Google Play link below.

Thanks, Jon!

    I just want an app that has similar to the Google Reader widget of a simple folder displaying the number of unread. Pitty I cant code.

      I just spent the better part of this morning trying out several different RSS readers, and i finally found 2 that are nearly perfect Google Reader replacements (displays feeds the same way, displays unread with a numerical value based on the feed, when you open the feed it clearly shows which ones are read / unread but still keeps them in the right order).

      they are: Reader (by Age of Mobile) and GoodNews (by Sven Wiegand).

      Reader and Goodnews both have free & paid versions (free version puts ads at the bottom when you open the article).

      I think Reader has a slightly better UI than Goodnews (Goodnews is a little too crunched up and dark), so i finally settled on the paid version of Reader.

      Reader also defaults itself to display exactly like Google Reader, with everything listed and ordered the same exact way (has an easy sync with Google Reader obviously), but there are many options and customizations available if you want to change it a bit. It also gives you an option to “mobilize” the article inside their app (attempt sort of a browser-style view) in case some content didn’t make it through.

      I honestly don’t know why everyone is raving about Feedly. the way it handles feeds doesn’t even come close to the simplicity of Google Reader. All I wanted was something to just show my feeds (on the main screen) the same way Google does. And Reader & Goodnews were the only 2 that came close (I also tried gReader and RssDemon but was disappointed).

      So I’m sticking with Age of Mobile’s Reader for now. But I’ll also give Digg’s reader a shot when that comes out (if the UI is as simple as they’re claiming).

    Never too late to learn nevetsg – pull it off and you’ll have a hit on your hands. Or, rather, coming out of your hands.

    I’m very glad this happened. I can’t use the feedly app with all it’s limitations.
