Nextgen Reader announces support for Feedly


It’s been a while since we talked about Google’s decision to kill of Reader and what it means for Windows Phone apps. Google is still planning on going through with it at the end of this month, and that means any app that uses Google Reader will be rendered useless. Way back in March one of our favorite apps, Nextgen Reader, announced they would continue after the shutdown. Today they are explaining how.

On their blog Nextgen has announced they will be included in Feedly’s upcoming Normandy project to allow a seamless transition from Google Reader. An update will come out later this month for the Windows Phone and Windows 8 versions of Nextgen to enable the Feedly support. Feedly’s Normandy project will allow Google Reader users to basically continue using the service without any noticeable changes after the shutdown.

Feedly has also announced that they will be working on a Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 app due to the large demand by their users. June is set to be a crazy month for Google Reader apps, and it’s great to have the best one on board to continue life after the shutdown.

    just awesome, really was hoping they go for feedly since it just works on android/windows, wp is next.

  • Glad to hear it! I like NextGen but if Feedly actually releases their own clients I will probably let it fall by the wayside. After all, why not use the actual client if its any good.
