Is there a Google Reader replacement that keeps ALL Google Reader history?

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/06/19

A while ago, I posted Google Reader alternatives: did you make a choice yet? indicating this about Feedly:

PRO: GR imported posts contains all history (even from blog feeds that are now defunct)

Well, I was proven wrong by this Feedly posting about the migration to their own cloud: [IMPORTANT] Preparing to be upgraded to the new feedly cloud | Building Feedly.

The one part we did not migrate from google reader is your history (too much data) so you have to expect that you are starting from a blank history and your unread counts will be reset. This is a one time issue.

Is there any Google Reader replacement that imports full history?

A few notes on Google Reader replacements that I’m testing

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/06/03

Almost 3 months after the Powering Down Google Reader announcement, most Google Reader users will have been looking for alternatives.

If you were whining, Stop whining about Google Reader, then take some action.

Before switching away from Google Reader, be sure to export the data through Google Takeout then download the export.
Read How to painlessly export your Google Reader feeds | News | for more information.

Note that the subscriptions.xml in the download is in fact an OPML file.

Until early may, I was waiting for Announcing Digg Reader to become a real reader, but gave up.

Right now I’m experimenting with a couple of replacements, so here are some notes: Read the rest of this entry »

Google Reader alternatives: did you make a choice yet?

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/05/22

My Google Reader alternatives shortlist comes down to these 3


  • PRO: imports GR including which posts you already read.
  • PRO: GR imported posts contains all history (even from blog feeds that are now defunct)
  • CON: slows down browser considerably
  • CON: UI has too much whitespace
  • CON: UI is slow (browsing with j/k takes ages)

CommaFeed & InoReader & The Old Reader

  • PRO: uses as much screen estate as possible
  • PRO: very fast UI
  • CON: GR import misses the read/unread markers
  • CON: GR import incomplete (so now defunct feeds do not appear)

One of the reasons I want to have the defunct feeds, is that it contains the old blog of a friend that passed away.

Did you make a choice yet?
