NewsBlur was the first service suggested by the news readers when they heard that Google Reader is going to shut down soon. The thing that makes it popular among the people is its friendly interface and eye-catching atmosphere which makes easier for you to read news easily and quickly. You can have it wherever you want by installing its app to your iOS or Android supported mobile or tablet. Also, there are two types of accounts available for users. One is free and second one is paid (24$ per year).

With a free account, you can subscribe to as many webs as you want. Also, you can get all the latest stories at an instant with a premium account. On the other hand, you can subscribe 64 websites and can get10 news stories at an instant. Public sharing option is still there with free account. You may not be able to register for free account at this point of time because they had restricted it due to high demand.

2.    Feedly:

Another great option to replace Google Reader is Feedly. Formerly, there were its iOS and Android apps but it has finally introduced its internet based reader as well. However, the one thing that makes it different from Google Reader is its design and interface. It is quite like a newspaper because it does not flow news steadily. So, if you are one who is fed up with the continuous pop-up of news, then you must give it a try.

One of the most significant alternatives to the Google Reader service is AOL Reader. It has made its name in a very short span of time due to its facilities that it is providing to its readers. One of them is the wide range of views available for users.

Also, it does not allow you to share with Facebook and Twitter friends and followers only but you can also share with your friends on LinkedIn and Google Plus. It has not launched any Android or iOS application yet, but there is news that it is going to launch it soon which will increase its audience and popularity too.
