Feedly adds 500k new users on Google decision to kill Reader

Feedly adds 500k new users on Google decision to kill Reader | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

"New users flock to the RSS reader app in the two days after Google announced it would retire its own RSS service."

 

Feedly is reaping the benefits of Google's decision to ax Reader.

The RSS app picked up more than 500,000 new users in the two days after the Web giant announced last week that it would retire its RSS app, the company said in a recent blog post. Google's decision to sunset the service on July 1 disappointed many on the Internet, leading to the creation of a handful of online petitions at Change.org that begged Google to reconsider.

"We have been working on a project called Normandy, which is a Feedly clone of the Google Reader API - running on Google App Engine," the company wrote in its blog. "When Google Reader shuts down, Feedly will seamlessly transition to the Normandy back end. So if you are a Google Reader user and using Feedly, you are covered: the transition will be seamless."
