Reader.is is an RSS reader designed to take the place of Google Reader when it shuts down. The main difference between Reader.is and other Google Reader alternatives is that it is not dependent on the Google API. At the moment, it is very simple and only supports RSS. In the near future, Reader.is will also support Atom, Google Reader import, read article tracking, sharing options, and Facebook login. Developers can use the Reader.is API to access feeds and integrate Reader.is into other applications.
