3 days is all that is left for Google Reader to die and already lot of princes are vying for the crown of being the most download Reader after Google Readers death.  Feedly for one has already brought about lot of changes to its UI and made it more and more user friendly and Google reader like.  I also have put up a feedly button for you to subscribe to.  The latest entrant in the field is the social networking giant Digg with its Reader.  The Digg.com/reader gives following message right now :

And the blog goes on to state that the first group of invites have been sent to the participants who had contributed towards its development.  Digg Reader has also been made available for iOS users.  For a change no separate download is required as Digg has bundled the Digg Reader with Digg iOS App.   From within the Reader App a user can “digg” the feed he/she likes while are reading which in turn will feature in the latest trending content diggs based on the "diggs" it has received.

Digg has promised to enhance the reader experience the users had with Google Reader to a completely new level.  The keyboard short cuts in Digg Reader are similar Google Reader for instance j and k to move between articles, s to save, d to Digg and v to view URL.  Depending on their preferences, users can view feeds in either List or Expanded View. They can also save their feeds to Instapaper, Pocket or Readability, or share articles to Twitter and Facebook. You also have full privacy authority over Digg Reader by choosing your profile to be either public or private.  

If you own a iOS device and are interested to checkout the latest offering from Digg, update your Digg App from Apple Store here.  Android users would have to wait 1 more day for the App, I suppose.  PC users can visit here to keep a track on announcements.
