When Google announced that it would be retiring Google Reader, Feedly quickly became many peoples next best bet. Just 48 hours after Google’s announcement, 500,000 users had converted to Feedly, and today Feedly announced that the total number of Google Reader “refugees” has hit 3 million.
Aside from that major news, Feedly has also announced updates to its iOS and Android apps. Feedly aims to make the transition from Reader as seamless as possible, and that is evident in this release. They have finally added the more barebones “headline only” view that many Reader users love. You can also now set different feeds as “Must Read”, which will put those posts to the top. The sharing menu has also been redesigned to make it easier to share to other services. Google+ has also been integrated so you no longer have to go to the system share menu. The app now has the pull-to-refresh option, and new layouts for Android tablets.
Feedly is doing a great job so far taking care of Google’s abandoned children and the future looks bright for them.
