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?

I really don't want to use another RSS reader. Especially it it means some stupid local client that can't sync read/unread items and preferences across multiple machines.

I see a lot more ads if I'm out reading stuff on the Internet. I find things to read via RSS. Hey Google, bad RSS clients mean I see fewer ads.

So sad.
