With only 11 days to spare, the folks at Feedly have launched their Google Reader replacement, which promises to keep your existing RSS feeds and continue serving them to all of your favorite apps for years to come.
The Building Feedly blog announced Wednesday that the company's new Feedly Cloud is live and available to all users, providing safe haven for Google Reader refugees less than two weeks before the service is shut down.
"Feedly cloud is now live, providing a fast and scalable infrastructure to seamlessly replace Google Reader," the blog post notes. "Feedly cloud also comes with a completely stand-alone Web version of feedly, that works with all major browsers. Finally, we are pleased to announce the first nine applications built on feedly cloud, that allow you to expand your feedly experience."
Existing Feedly users are encouraged to head to cloud.feedly.com and log in, then restart both Feedly and your web browser on all devices that use it to "make sure that your account is migrated to the Feedly cloud and will make sure that all your devices will remain in sync."
In addition to powering a "brand-new, standalone web version" of Feedly as well as its own mobile apps, more than 200 developers have contacted the company about its Google Reader API replacement. The first nine Feedly Cloud-enabled applications are now available, including Newsify for iOS a number of Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry 10 clients.
iOS and Mac favorites like Reeder have also pledged support for Feedly Cloud, so hopefully new versions of those apps will arrive prior to Google Reader being shuffled off to retirement.
