Reeder to use Feedbin to power its newsreading feature (Updated)
The developers behind popular Google Reader-based newsreading app Reeder said earlier this year the app would not die when Google's Reader service goes offline this summer. Customers concerned about this transition can breathe a sigh of relief as Reeder announced last night that it will switch to Feedbin as its back-end service.
Feedbin was created by San Francisco web developer Ben Ubois and is based on open source software. It has a robust API that'll sync subscriptions, articles and their read/starred states. There's also a web-based interface that allows you to manage your RSS feeds. Access to the web version costs US$2/month.
Update: The developer behind Reeder confirmed on Twitter that Feedbin is not the only solution being implemented. It is just his favorite choice right now.
