One mor bites the dust...

Ever since Google got rid of the "share on reader" and "share with note" options in favor of the "+1" in Google Reader I've been not using the web version of Google Reader. Of course, google just evolved the handles for these two sharing options from their web reader, they did not remove the underlying functionality. As a matter of fact it's still there, which meant that apps like byline have been able to share items on the google shared page...but apps have also slowly been removing this functionality steadily since google did this.
Well, byline, the app that I've been using since I had my second generation iPod touch, just updated their app on the iPad to not include google's deprecated functions. I guess I will have to keep using byline (non universal) on the iPhone and Perfect RSS and hope that these don't remove the functionality. The kicker is that none of those apps support +1, so even if I wanted to switch to the stupid +1 I can't, at least not on an app.
