The next Google Reader

Flipboard

I’m worried.

Google Reader has it’s writing on the wall and I don’t know what to do.

Why?

I have a wealth of read or starred articles in my Google Reader account, they’re all nicely organised into folders and more importantly I use Google Reader every day.

The only thing is, that I don’t actually use Google Reader every day. I use the data that it outputs but the user interface so so horrible that I would never actually sit and read Google Reader.

What do I use?

Flipboard.
