Google Reader may finally be gone, but the transition to other services may not be going quite as smoothly as promised for Flipboard users, some of whom have lost access to their imported feeds.
TechCrunch reported Tuesday that a number of Flipboard users have woke up in a post-Google Reader world only to find the RSS feeds they had entrusted to the service aren't working.
Flipboard was one of many apps that announced a safe haven for Google Reader refugees once the end finally came on July 1st. “Your Google Reader subscriptions will be safe on Flipboard,” the company's earlier blog post said.
Judging from users who have flocked to Twitter, that may not be the case. Although we've had no problem accessing our own imported Google Reader feeds via Flipboard, others are complaining that accessing them from within the app only returns a "no content" error on an otherwise blank screen.
Flipboard is apparently working on the issue and at least one TechCrunch tipster claims to have had his Reader feed restored -- although only for items already in Flipboard's own catalog of content.
Update: Flipboard announced via Twitter that "Google Reader feeds and folders are indeed safe. The summary feed is not working yet for some users but this will work soon. Thank you."
