Our RSS feeds had been pretty reliant on Google Reader for years. (In the event you don’t know- Google Reader was a free service that pulled new posts, or “RSS feeds”, from blogs & websites, pooling all the content onto one easy to read page.

We’ve a number of thoughts for you on that, so listed here are our favourite alternatives.

Flipboard is the most well-liked of the magazine-like content aggregator apps. Apart from its own curated feeds, it connects with quite a few social networks which could collect news feeds – including Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.
