The New Feedly Mobile – iOS and Android

We just released a new version of feedly for iOS and Android. New look, richer personalization and simpler navigation are at the heart of this release.

It available now and continues to be free:
Apple App Store
Google Play Store

Special thanks to all the beta testers who have been working behind the scenes over the last three months to help polish the experience. We love you for all insight and suggestions you provided.

[Update] We are working on a couple of priority 0 issues reported over the last couple of days:

Issue #1: if you use Google 2-factor authentication, then you will need to create an application specific password to be able to login to feedly. Feedly will remember it. We are working on using OAuth2 to avoid this in the next release.

Issue #2: The application crashes on iOS 4.x. The work around is to upgrade to iOS 5.1. If that is not an option, we will have a build out within the next 10 days which addresses this issue.

If you run into an issue, we are here to help:  log an issue

    1. Very sorry to hear this. The truth is that we do not have the resources to start a new platform. We need another 6 months to make sure that iOS, Android, Chrome, Firefox and Safari are delivering our promisse.

  1. 2-factor authentication is not a bug! Anything connecting to google should require the one app password. No need to change.

  2. I love the new UI, but I HATE that there isn’t an option to NOT HIDE articles once they’ve been read, like with Pulse News Reader. I don’t want to just have a bunch of unnecessary saved items, so please make this an option in the next Android update. I like keeping all articles visible since I tend to go back to them once or twice over the course of a day, and am never really quite sure which ones I’ll want to save when I read through them the first time. Also, touch responsiveness lags quite a bit. I know Feedly for Android still in Beta, but these fixes would be very nice!

    1. Yes. A lot of other people have requested this. v11 of feedly mobile will allow you to configure a source so that unread articles are visible. Targeting a release before the end of the month. Thanks for taking the time to submit this suggestion. Have a great week end.

  3. I didn’t mean the two form authentication. Feedly on iOS 4.2 is non responsive. Upgrade to iOS 5 is unfortunately not an option. When is the update planned for this bug?

    1. We hope to be able to submit something to Apple for review by the end of this week. It will take a week or so for Apple to review the app.

  4. By writing using a translator, I’m sorry.
    Feedly is only with the google account registered on my phone, Google Reader can be recalled.
    Security reasons my phones with Google Account & to use Google Reader account, I’m using a separate …
    I want to login feature that Google account on my phone is not registered.
    Have a nice day!

  5. I too would really like if read articles can be kept in the feeds. My reading habits really don’t work with articles automatically disappearing.

  6. I can’t believe you guys doesn’t have keyword filters yet. It’s the most useful thing of RSS… Implement it fast or you’ll lose many people.

  7. I was using greater for my Android but feedly fascinated me but now it’s a little annoying xD I changed the grid layout but I cannot seem to find it anymore, could someone help me in the how to?

  8. App specific password instead of 2 step

    USING: iPhone 5, Google 2 step verification.
    ISSUE: It saves the password for only 30 days, trustrating to reset.
    PROPOSED RESOLUTION: Could use app specific paswords like Pulse.
    Good app but some problems

  9. I miss the ability to rename feeds in the actual feed and not just in the folders. Many of my sources just say “Latest 10 news” etc., when reading in the ‘Latest’ or ‘Today’ section, so I would really appreciate the option to rename feeds as on Google Reader, where renaming a subscription changes the name of that subscription in the folders as well as in the actual feed. Hope you understand, what I am trying to say. Besides that, Feedly is an amazing app.

  10. A few comments. Just came onboard from Reader. Can’t figure out how to eliminate captions in “list” mode (list implies no fluff).. Would like to see some Android menu functionality (for quick sharing, tagging etc), would like to see a smooth scrolling option rather than batch.

  11. Since Google’s big announcement, I’ve been on the hunt for a replacement. I love that feedly has both web and app versions. I don’t read news sites or explore the web, I just read hundreds of design, DIY, homeschool, and family blogs. Some things I’d love to see to help with this transition are straight lists of new updated feeds (no description, and don’t list all the sources that don’t have any updates!), Android menu options (like mark unread and save for later – I can’t find these options anywhere right now!), and an auto-alphabetize option. There seems to be much more customization available on the web version, and not much I can do from the app. I’ve tried several other rss readers and so far feedly is my favorite, but it’s still a little frustrating when I can’t figure out some basic functions.

    1. I’m with you here. I might stick to Feedly once Google Reader it’s switched off but the one thing I can’t find how to do in Android is to save for later and it’s driving me crazy. I use it all the time.

      How do you save for later?

  12. Howdy! This post could not be written much better!
    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept talking about this. I’ll forward
    this post to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a
    good read. I appreciate you for sharing!

  13. Greetings! Very useful advice in this particular post!
    It is the little changes that make the most significant
    changes. Thanks a lot for sharing!
