It's a relativly smooth process to change from Reader to Feedly, as the developer's blog post details:

  • Please backup your data using Google Takeout:
  • To connect with feedly cloud, please go to app settings -> accounts and select “feedly”.
  • If you’re logging in for the first time, then Feedly will automatically migrate your list of subscriptions and categories. It will also migrate the tagged articles (Note: there is 1,000 entry limit for each tag).
  • Your unread counts are reset.

NextGen Reader is also available for Windows 8 - although the current version there does not have Feedly integration, it's coming in the very near future.

You can download the free trial direct from the AAWP App Directory.
