Curata Reader is Shutting Down

We regret to announce that Curata Reader will be shutting down to the public on December 4, 2013. We loved our little reader as much as our users, but the costs of operating it are simply too high. We’re not the first team to confront the high costs of running a free, web-based feed reader (see The Old Reader’s near-death experience and, of course, Google Reader itself), and we probably won’t be the last.

We know this will be disappointing to you the users, especially after we were all stranded by Google Reader’s demise just six months ago. We will do our best to ensure you have the subscription data you need to transition to a new feed reader, both before and after Curata Reader shuts down.

How to get your subscription data

Between now and December 4th, you can download your subscriptions as an OPML file by going to Settings and clicking Export Subscriptions.

ExportSubscriptions

On the day Curata Reader shuts down, we will email you one last time with a link to download your subscription data OPML file, which will be available for at least 60 days.

All other user data will be permanently deleted, so there will be no need for you try to manually delete or cancel your account. If you logged in using Google, you can revoke the access you granted to Curata Reader by following these instructions.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at Curata Reader Support or by email at reader.support@curata.com.
