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?

Well, looks like I'll have to set up an owncloud server after all! Not sure if it has an rss reader already, but if it doesn't, it shouldn't be that hard to make one anyway!


ownCloud 5.x will have one. 5.0 was just released, but the RSS reader/aggregator is still in beta. And it includes an API for external clients to use. The dev wants to make it a gReader replacement. He's even trying to create a Google Summer of Code project to create a mobile app that interfaces with it.
