Just after hearing about Reeder for iPad going free, and that development of the application will indeed continue after Google Reader’s July 1st shutdown, we get some news about Feedly. Feedly, as many may know, is another RSS aggregating service that works sorta kinda like Google Reader. Well, post-Google’s Reader shutdown announcement, Feedly reports that over 3 million users have switched to the service. I have not used Feedly, but did go check it out, not yet making a switch however.
Also on the Feedly side of things, the mobile application has been updated. There were the usual bug fixes among other improvements, including a new Feed Search, better sharing, and pull to refresh. Here’s the full change log:
What’s New in Version 14
☂ Fixes random logout bug, and many other smaller issues
★ New Feed Search and Discovery.
★ New Title Only View. More controls over layouts.
★ Enhanced Sharing & Save for Later
★ New “Must Read” Section to easily organize the feeds you don’t want to miss
★ Customize Favorite Sharing Tool to G+, Buffer, Twitter, Facebook, Email or browser
★ Customize Favorite Save for Later Tool to Pocket
★ Mark as read card at the end of each sections
★ Pull to refresh in the home selector
The application and service are really beefing up features, which is great because of the unfortunate Reader announcement. Hopefully it will be a complete replacement by the time Reader is shut down, if something else doesn’t come along better that is. Get the update here: Feedly.
What do you think? Have you tried Feedly? Or are you saying with Reader till the end? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
