> It seems like Google Currents is only available as a phone or tablet app, so it's not much a replacement for the Google Reader web interface
Yes, sadly. In my opinion, any replacement for Google Reader has, as a minimum, the following properties:
- A desktop application. Web-based with good keyboard bindings would be preferable.
- A smartphone app, and a tablet app.
- A stateful synchronizable backing store.
- A synchronization API. Extra bonus if it's open, and allows for 3rd party applications to use it.
I haven't been diving into the alternatives yet, and am taking a bit of 'wait and see' approach. But from the chatter on the net, it seems that Feedly is currently one of the top contenders. People's opinions of it vary somewhat though. Has anyone tried it out, particularly against the above mentioned list?
