Google Reader Shuts Down, Sparks 50,000+ Strong Petition
Google recently announced that they will be shutting down the popular RSS service – Google Reader. Effective from July 1st, 2013, Google will no longer be supporting Google Reader and its API won’t be functioning as desired. Most of the popular RSS services like Reeder and Feedly that thrive on the Google Reader API have been going bonkers regarding the news. Some even plan to release their own type of Google Reader service.
The news sparked a petition which has now almost been signed by 30,000 members and the number is constantly growing. In October, Google released a redesigned version of Google Reader.
RSS may not be a daily part of everyone’s needs, but at TheAppleGoogle and the lives of many individuals, it is an important tool. Google, let it continue.
