Goodbye to Google Reader

Google-Grim-Reaper

So now the time to Say goodbye to Google reader, We can tell that Google Eliminated lost of App from them. that’s pretty bad but they might calculate how many user engaged with those app then only they planing that the keep the app feature or Suspend it. From today (July 1st 2013) onward we wont able to use the Google reader. This is the final but we can find better alternative option for that.   But Most of them thinking why Google wanted to shut down the Google reader .

Free Alternatives to Google Reader

Feedly – Feedly is probably the most popular alternative to Google Reader. They make it extremely easy to migrate your feeds over, with a one-click import, and the design is actually cleaner and more attractive than Google Reader.

Curata Reader – The cleanest reader, specifically designed for business users. Exceptional article searching and filtering capabilities.

AOL Reader – I personally wouldn’t be caught dead using an AOL product but for those of you who aren’t picky, I’ve heard their reader (still in beta) is simple and fast.

The Old Reader – The Old Reader was built to replicate, well, the old Reader, back when Google Reader had social sharing functions. If those features (like sharing and commenting) were important to you, you might like this replacement, though you’d have to convince all your old friends to use it too to get the same value.

Digg Reader – Digg has been developing an RSS reader that is so far invite-only, but should be more widely available soon. An Android app is on the way. You can read about the features here.

Paid Alternatives to Google Reader

Newsblur – At $24 a year, you may feel more comfortable paying for a reader that is less likely to shut down unexpectedly. It’s been around since 2009.

Feedbin – Feedbin also costs $2 a month. I haven’t heard from anyone who thinks it’s worth the cost, frankly.

Feed Wrangler – Another basic RSS reader, for $19 a year.

If you’re serious about RSS it’s worth trying out multiple products to see which is the best fit. All of these options offer similar functionality, so it’s mostly a matter of finding the reader whose aesthetic you like best.

Are you curious about other Google products and services that have come and gone? The Google Graveyard infographic illustrates some of the many Google products that have been discontinued in the past 10 years!

And if we keeping Multicolumns, according to you screen resolution it changes, to two or three columns. Some of my friends mentioned that New Google plus seems like new Facebook and Pinterest. But i feel that Google doing more better there is no copying other social medias.  Share Box Animating out. Slide in and out menu bar. even all posts seems like cards flip and and folding way.  Personally i like the related hashTags (#) this feature if you not mentioning any hash tag automatically checks out posts and photos. Now Google Plus started analyze you post and placing hashtags.  Once we clicking the hash tags in one post the same post automatically filips and checks the whats next in those hashtags and we can click next and see others also.

Now About photo. Normally with Google plus we can upload any nos of photos in standard size but  in Hi-Res only up to 5 GB only available,  In Google I/O Conference Google increased the capacity of Hi-Res Photos up to 15GB.  Next Feature Highlights  this is Filters the Best photos of our albums and shows in front line if we uploading about 150 Pics at once google Highlight works and summarized about 25.Rest of them can see in end of the album more photos. And we can Auto Enhance feature that mean automatic image editing the photo once we click the on contrast pics and making skin softening also.
