The Old Reader Reviews

worth the wait

about The Old Reader and Google Reader · ·

So far, I love it! My import took less than an hour -- on the morning of July 2, when all the Google Reader orphans were looking for a new home at the same time.

It's close enough to the Google Reader interface that the transition has been mostly painless. My biggest beef is that the right-side scroller is a little hard to see and find. Seriously. That's my biggest problem!

Nice, clean, simple. Win.

No way to sign up using the existing mail account. Required permission for the Google Account connection: "Associate you with your public Google profile".

Hm... nope.

Now you can sign up using your mail account: this feature was added recently.

Great to know, thanks!

Since Google announced that Reader will not be available after July, I'll suggest to import your feeds to The Old Reader :)
