If you were a user of Google Reader, your heart probably broke when Google mysteriously announced they were discontinuing the service. However, Feedly stepped in as the knight in shining armor who saved news junkies from certain doom. Feedly is a free RSS feed aggregator that lets you subscribe to almost any website, blog or news site. It updates automatically whenever a new post goes up on the sites you subscribe to.
It's easy to organize the content in custom folders, and each one has a count of unread items. You can really customize how you want to see everything and what you want to see first. There is a lot of integration with social media apps, so you can easily post interesting news pieces, and you can also bookmark items to read for later.
