Building next generation apps for Windows platform.

All posts in Uncategorized

Google announced today that it’s shutting down Google Reader on July 1, 2013. It’s not a big surprise to us as we knew that it was going to happen someday but may be not so soon. Anyways, R.I.P. Google Reader – we loved you and we’ll miss you as developers although you never gave us an official API. 😉

But, the even bigger surprise to us is your support for Nextgen Reader. Since the announcement, we’ve received hundreds of emails and messages on Twitter/Facebook/etc. Please be assured that Nextgen Reader will continue to work perfectly across Windows & Windows Phone and we’re already looking into various alternatives:

  • Hosting our own service on Windows Azure.
  • Newsblur support.
  • Normandy – Feedly support.

More importantly, if you have any thoughts or suggestions, please share them below in comments or feel free to send a mail, or reach us via Twitter and Facebook anytime.

We’ll share further details very soon… hopefully next week or before end of this month. Till then we request you to keep using Google Reader for next few weeks.

Thank you again for your patience and support!
