Say Goodbye To Google Reader And Hello To Rockmelt
After Google announced that it would be shutting down Google Reader by this July, users of the beloved RSS aggregation service naturally began looking for possible alternatives. We here at AppAdvice have recommended quite a few, with the future addition of the soon-to-be-relaunched NetNewsWire. Now, we're putting forward another alternative in the form of Rockmelt, which has just gained a nifty Google Reader Feed Importer feature. The folks behind Rockmelt have this to say about the new feature:
When we heard the news about Google Reader shutting down, we, too, were bummed. However, we are thankful that Google introduced the concept of pushing content from publishing sites to readers. So, with the goog’s reader on the way out, our developers decided we could do something about it, and we could build a snazzy Google Reader Feed Importer.If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. To import your Google Reader feeds to Rockmelt, you must, of course, have Rockmelt installed on your iDevice. If you do, just log in to Rockmelt, visit this link from within the app, and tap the Start Import Now button. Then, log in to your Google account, allow Rockmelt to access your Google Reader account, and select which feeds you'd like to import. Note that whichever feeds you select, they will be visible to other Rockmelt users. Finally, tap the Import button to commence the importing process. Once the process is completed, your feeds will already appear within Rockmelt. And there you have it: Rockmelt's Google Reader Feed Importer in just a few simple steps. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Rockmelt is available in the App Store for free. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
