Readable: An Aussie Google Reader Alternative

The clock is ticking for Google Reader, and when the alarm goes off, it will be no more. One Australian programmer has developed an Open Source alternative that might be able to cure your RSS woes.

We’ve covered off a number of Google Reader alternatives in recent months, and Readable really just sits as another choice in the queue. It’s the brainchild of Melbourne-based programmer Elbert Filius, and offers many of the features you’d expect of a web-based RSS client, with a very minimalistic visual approach.

In theory it will take your imported Google Reader feed (if you’re unclear as to how to export your Google Reader feed, our handy guide will walk you through it.) although when I tested it wasn’t able to properly upload the relevant XML file; hopefully that’s just a small server bug.
