    This is bullshit.

    I have moved to Inoreader. It's amazing!

    Michael, Digg Reader Team,

    Ah. Sorry to hear this. Readers retiring is not a great news for the Web. This must have been a painful decision :-(

    To the digg readers who want to test drive Feedly, here is a link to a blog post that explains how you can import your OPML: https://blog.feedly.com/opml/

    If you have suggestion on how to make Feedly better, you can reach me at edwin@feedly.com

    Looking forward to seeing that the Digg team will be focusing on next.

    -Edwin

    Sad to hear about this. RSS is an important standard to keep the web open and fight back against the walled gardens popping up over the web. We at Feeder wrote a blog post how to try Feeder, a free reader that I wrote in 2010.

    You can easily migrate to inoreader - I think it is the best reader :). Just export your subscriptions to OPML and import them like this:

    Check out Feedbro feed reader. It's fast & free and has a built-in rule engine for automatic filtering, notifications, autotagging, can convert partial feeds to full articles, has IFTTT integration etc!

    Check BazQux Reader too.

    It has very clean interface (quite similar to Google Reader but more clean), frequently updates feeds, allows subscribing to Twitter/Facebook/Instagram/G+, has filters and various view modes. And it has a business model (it's a paid reader) and no plans to close.

    It's sad, but that's life! Thanks for all the effort you've done until today.

    Also thanks for the suggestions, since yesterday I've been digging them. They have all of them pros and cons, and I think the "best" one is Inoreader. --However I've to mention the following: if you want to leave Inoreader with an OPML file, you will have to pay a Pro Account. In other words, it's free to get in, but it's not to get out.--

    Best!

    Nikola Kostadinov: This is not true. You can export OPML with the free version. The Pro account is only required for OPML backups which is different - it  peridically saves OPML export to an external source.

    Thanks Nicola, I'll add your comment to my comment.

    Why am I getting the email announcement today (the 27th) when your website says your closing down on the 26th, which is yesterday?

    Regardless, I think I'm going to have to only stick with long-standing web apps like Feedly. I took the risk, when with Digg Reader having invested some time in setting it up and now this.

    Oh!!! It is sad news. :(
