Google "We launched Google Reader in 2005 in an effort to make it easy for people to discover and keep tabs on their favorite websites. While the product has a loyal following, over the years usage has declined. So, on July 1, 2013, we will retire Google Reader. Users and developers interested in RSS alternatives can export their data, including their subscriptions, with Google Takeout over the course of the next four months." This makes me very, very sad. Any good alternatives - alternatives with Windows Phone and Metro applications, that is?

Is there a viable alternative?

I stopped using desktop RSS aggregators after realizing Google Reader was much faster and easier to use. They enhanced it over the years, including keyboard navigation, and synchronization with Android phones.

Now, I'll be left with almost no alternative. Does anybody know anything viable?
