I suppose they will alter the way it works otherwise it will be useless after google reader is closed down.

How about changing it, to work with "TinyTinyRSS"? I would love that.

I'm not sure where to switch to yet, lightread looks like a great reading client... hope it will work in the future!

Please this. This is the best reader for Ubuntu, and I bet it wouldn't be so bad to implement local storage. Would it? Consindo or other developers, please add to the conversation.

It would be great if it could synchronize with feedly! TinyTinyRSS looks good, but not everyone will be able to run their own server. Feedly is only lacking a good desktop (offline) reader in Linux.

Lightread just stopped having feeds completely as of today :(

Tiny Tiny RSS would be great as a sync service...but this app looks dead...just like every other App from the App Showdown...WTF?!?

Anyway, Liferea works with isn't perfect but it does work fairly well so check that out.

Can you help with this problem?
