Best Google Reader Alternatives as of June 2013

In the next few days, Google Reader will be shut down officially on July 1st, 2013 (Canada Day). So I wanted to share some of the Best Alternatives to Google Reader and the Best RSS Readers out there, some were included in the Best Apps of 2012 . 



Feedly (Android/ iOS / Web)

This is the best of the best and most popular RSS readers out there, Feedly has a clean UI for their web app and that continues onto their mobile apps. Feedly also makes it very easy to migrate your Google Reader stuff to Feedly or other RSS readers (Press, gReader etc.)

Feedly Android App

Feedly Web Interface


 Download Feedly : Play Store iTunes Web


Pulse (Android/ iOS / Web)

Pulse is partly a RSS reader, they mostly rely on their own new algorithms to help find stories that might interest you. I personally use Pulse a lot to check up on the latest tech news, and they have a bunch of different sources that you can choose from. 

Pulse News Web Interface

Pulse News iOS App


Download Pulse: Play Store iTunes Web

Flipboard (Android and iOS)

Flipboard has similar functionality to Pulse but this is heavily focuses on a magazine design. You can add in your Facebook and Twitter and Google+ accounts to share interesting new stories, and you can link it to Pocket to "read it later" (get it because Pocket use to be called Read It Later). It does sync with Google Reader if you so desire but it will put all of your feeds into one section and that isn't such a great idea. It's a beautiful reader but don't bother trying to sync your Google Reader to it.

Flipboard Smartphone Interface 

Flipboard iPad App

Download Flipboard: Play Store iTunes



There are many more Google Reader and RSS Readers out there but that's all for now and Good Luck searching for one that works for you

HTC has announced that they’re dropping the price of their Vive headset by $200, making $799 CAD ($599 USD), down from $1,149 CAD ($799 USD).This is likely in order to better compete with the Oculus Rift which also just recently dropped its price to $549 CAD ($399 USD).Each purchase of a Vive headset comes two base stations and two motion controllers along with a one-month free trial to their Viveport subscription, which allows users play up to five VR titles each month, you also get Google’s Tilt Brush app.“We know price is just one component of a purchase decision, but when you line up all that Vive offers, we’re building a complete VR ecosystem that customers can rely on today and for years to come,” HTC said in a statement.The HTC Vive is available from Amazon.ca, Microsoft Store and directly from HTC’s site.Source: HTC

Google’s Blocks tool lets you create 3D objects in VR

Google has introduced a new creation tool for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, called Blocks. The tool helps to make 3D models easier to create.

To create an object in Blocks, you’re given some basic shapes, a colour palette and an “intuitive set of tools” which will let users quickly and naturally create almost anything to their heart’s desire.Here are some of the things you can make using Blocks.
