Feedly, a news aggregator and RSS reader app available on Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Android, and iOS, anticipated the end of Google Reader  and were ready for it. As soon as Google announced the end of Google Reader, Feedly made posts informing users of not only Feedly’s intent to make a Google Reader clone but also about how Google Reader users can seamlessly migrate their feeds and subscriptions from Google Reader to Feedly. It looks like Feedly’s foresight has paid off.
According to a blog post made by Feedly, 500,000 Google Reader users have moved to Feedly in 48 hours. The sudden influx of users has, of course, put strain on Feedly’s servers and caused their website and service to slow to a crawl immediately after Google’s announcement. However, since then Feedly has added more servers and increased bandwidth by 10x to help keep the service running smoothly.
Well played Feedly, well played.
