With Google announcing the shutdown of Google Reader, everyone is looking for a replacement to get their feeds. News aggregating site Feedly said that it would try to clone the Google Reader API called Normandy. This has resulted in 500,000 new subscribers in just 48 hours.
The app is now the number one free app in the Apple App Store. Feedly’s goals are for the next 30 days are keeping the service up with all of the new subscribers, listening to new members for suggestions and to add new features weekly.
If Google Readers switch to Feedly before Google Reader expires on July 1st, users will be able to seamlessly transition to Feedly. Googles loss is clearly Feedly’s gain.
