Google Reader Closure

Man!!!

I have been consistently reading my news from Google Reader and keeping an offline copy to read when I'm offline.

I saw some options online, but I wasn't too happy:

  • NetVibes doesn't have an Android app, so that's online only
  • NewsBlur's free account allows you to follow 12 feeds only. Are your crazy??? On the plus side, the android app looks like it works offline.
  • Feedly has an android app and unlimited feeds, but no offline support.
It looks like the only real option is  Tiny Tiny RSS - it has an android app that syncs with the server, but you have to host it yourself. Grrr...

I'm sort of hoping that either Feedly gets an offline mode, or someone sets up public Tiny Tiny RSS access at this point.
