Goodbye Google Reader – Save your Starred Reads with Evernote
Google Reader is shutting down on July 1, 2013. Another useful Google app falling victim to the creation of flying cars and dizzying glasses, but I digress. If you were a GReader user and are concerned about losing all of your starred goods, check out ‘Export_gr2Evernote‘ to save the notes to Evernote.
To make the process as seamless as possible/ you don’t have a mess of your notes, you have two viable options once downloading and running the app (Make sure you have an app like Text Wrangler for Mac or Notepad++ for Windows. 1.

Formatting is retained as much as possible on both of these options.
Possibly another good reason to join the cult, err, I mean Evernote? Your stuff will stay forever! Get ‘Export_gr2Evernote here.
