For all you displaced Google Reader readers out there, we understand this is a difficult time for you. For us too. And while you desperately scour the net in hopes of finding a Google Reader replacement, the folks at Feedly want to help you during this awkward transitional phase. A minimal RSS reader for your Android and desktop, Feedly is hoping you’ll give them a shot — you know, once their server is done getting pounded like Paris Hilton at a frat party. Here’s what they had to say via their blog:

“Google announced today that they will be shutting down Google Reader. This is something we have been expecting for some time: We have been working on a project called Normandy which is a feedly clone of the Google Reader API – running on Google App Engine. When Google Reader shuts down, feedly will seamlessly transition to the Normandy back end. So if you are a Google Reader user and using feedly, you are covered: the transition will be seamless.”

Have to admit, I totally forgot about Feedly and I’m sure there are more RSS readers out there you guys are particularly fond of. Care to make any more suggestions?

Thanks, Justin!
