Popular Google Reader-based newsreading app Reeder said earlier this year that it would not die when Google’s Reader service goes offline this summer. Customers concerned about this transition can breathe a sigh of relief as Reeder announced last night that it will switch to Feedbin as its backend service.

Feedbin was created by San Francisco web developer Ben Ubois and is based on open source software. It has a robust API that’ll sync subscriptions, articles and their read/starred states. There’s also a web-based interface that allows you to manage your RSS feeds. Access to the web version costs $2/month.

The iPhone version of Reeder will get Feedbin support soon, while the iPad and OS X version will be updated in the coming months.
