AOL Reader is Launching on Monday as Google Reader Replacement

Jun 22 2013, 8:20am CDT | by , in News | Technology News

AOL Reader is Launching on Monday
 
 

AOL will debut its online reader starting from Monday in private beta. AOL reader is a replacement of Google reader. But it launching a week ahead of its shut down.

An AOL Reader is already being given the final touches. It will be both speedy and minimally stylish. This is a contrast to the by now defunct Google Reader. The Google service will stop services from the 1st of July. But AOL Reader private beta version will start working from 24th June. All websites will be presented under-one-roof on AOL Reader. The Next Web first reports the launch and it states that other wannabe companies are scrambling for the same thing. These include Digg, BlogLovin and Feedly. Even Facebook is rumored to be ready to introduce a Reader. Google’s decision to scrap its Reader was not taken very well by the fans. They complained vocally in response to the impending death of Google Reader.

But the imperative had been given many months back. The problem happened to be the RSS feeds collated by fans over the years via Google Reader. However, these die-hard fans are lucky. Several carbon copy sites are purported to be ready to mushroom online.  But for now at least the main alternative is AOL Reader. The private beta it operates on possesses CSS Styles. That is good news for owners of touch devices as they will get mobile web optimizations. Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook sharing will be a feature too. AOL in a way ought to be thankful to Google. The search engine giant’s vacancy provided space for AOL’s endeavors.

The teaser page of AOL Reader reveals that it will have a customizable layout. While AOL Reader API allows users to develop any type of app they wish too. While it will have a simple import feature to move your RSS feeds from other readers. Users can also star their favorite articles to view in one click. It also allows tagging of news on other websites, so as to read later.

Now it seems it is a fight to the finish to lure Google’s lost sheep into AOL’s territory. The collectivization of all the interesting websites in one spot was a favor to all fans. They cannot thank AOL enough for this blessing. It is definitely substitution time. When the old and decrepit systems have fallen by the wayside, it is time for a change. And though change is stressful it is also a necessity. Either companies undergo mergers, takeovers and acquisitions or simply fade away. And when they do vanish into thin air, others will take their place easily. There is no lack of competition. Google is a very efficient and creative company. But there are areas in which it lags behind other more capable conglomerates. The Google Reader was one such obsolete site that had to be put down. And so it was. We have to wait and see how AOL fares in the shark-infested depths of cyberspace.
