Since Google announced the shutting of Google Reader service for July 1st 2013, Feedly has developed its own RSS subscription. Now you can directly add your sources from Feedly, which works autonomously. That's the final step it was lacking which has made it a comprehensive reading tool, and the favorite of most of disenchanted hard-GReader users. In addition, Feedly's scenery has been enhanced regarding smoothness, accessibility and customization.
First off, you can log in with any of your Gmail accounts in order to sync your RSS list. If you haven't added any RSS to your account yet, you can do it also from the app or choose the presets categories that Feedly suggests you. It's true that there are heaps of RSS reader for iOS, each one with their specific features. Feedly added value lies on simplicity, cuteness, multi-platform and a self-made RSS subscription system.
Simplicity due to reading is as easy as swiping between RSS entries, tap on categories, select the one you prefer and start again. You can open/close, add to read it later, remove a source, share, copy article URL, change format... among other features.
Cute because it's set on a sober and good-looking layout with cool screen transitions. What's more, it is fast on loading images and in switching from one article to the next. You can go to the original article without leaving the app (there's a browser integrated).
Multi-platform because there are iOS, Android, Chrome and Mozilla versions which made keeping up-to-date even easier since all these versions are synced. Thus, anything you read on your mobile device will appear as "already read" when you check Feedly on your browser later.
Feedly is an example of how a cute app, with basic features can become a great one if the developer focus on make it usable. That's what Feedly Team did. Must-have.Tags: news, zoom reader on youtube.
