The Whaleoil team are all heavy Google Reader users, so we’ve been looking for answers.

Over the next few months, other solutions may present themselves, but in the mean time, it appears that Feedly is a soft place to land.

Free and promising to offer a seamless transition the day Google turns its Reader services off, all you need to do now is to go to the web site, authorise the app for Google Reader use, and you’re on your way.

They promise that is all you will need to do:  


Feedly is available for all the major platform, so you can try it out and see if it suits you.

Feedly for iOS
