Google Reader will be gone for good in a few days. If you are still one of those people who cant find a worthy Google Reader replacement, I would suggest you give Digg Reader a try. Many of you may remember Digg as a popular social media site that used to send hundreds of thousands of visitors when you hit the front page.
Just like many other developers, Digg joined the party and launched their own RSS reader in a very short span of time. Surprisingly, I got the beta key today and tested the tool. I must say that after trying so many tools that are already available on the internet, Digg Reader seems to be a very decent Google Reader alternative.
Offering an interface that is very similar to Google Reader, Digg Reader allows users to import their feeds from Google Reader in a few seconds and start reading. The good thing about the service is that you can even login with your Google credentials and it will automatically import your RSS feeds.
After logging, it will show you the feeds in a clean and elegant interface. You can view the stories, thumbs up them on Digg, save them for later reading or share them on Facebook and Twitter. If you want, you can even change the layout view from List to Expanded and vice versa.
Digg reader also brings another interesting feature i-e support to connect your Instapaer, Pocket or Readability accounts. You can even connect the service with your Facebook and Twitter accounts so that you can share articles seamlessly.
The service is still under private beta but I hope that they will release it publicly before 1st July, the date when we must say good bye to Google Reader. Digg reader also has a dedicated iOS app which can be downloaded from App Store. In case of Android, it will be available in Google Play store very soon.
