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 would suggest switching to something like It offers a free plan for up to 64 RSS channels. If however you feel like getting a premium account - it is only $1/month ;)

And the whole app looks really well.

i have over 600 feeds. looks like a nice option but i should check their export policies to prepare for the day when they decide to Google their users.
