For months now I’ve used MobileRSS to satisfy my need for RSS feed reading.. Well, I used it to pull in the contents of my Google Reader account anyway. However, of late its been suffering with a very annoying issue in that it would automatically start googling for code errors in the pages you were reading, making it almost impossible to use. So I decided it was time for a fresh start, I hit the AppStore and almost immediately stumbled upon Feedly.
Unlike MobileRSS Feedly serves its RSS content in a kind of newspapermagazine layout. Making it far more appealing to the eye. Not only that but it pulls in all of the photo’s from the articles too. This makes skimming the news much easier to do when your pushed for time.
Feedly is available from the AppStore for both iPhone and iPad, and packs in some pretty cool features.
Feedly is a fine example of how HTML5 can be used to create a clean and minimalistic interface. Feedly works best (in my opinion) if you’ve already got a Google Reader account. However it does have some built in news feeds to wet your appetite.
Feedly also features the expected sharing abilities, allowing for quick and easy posting to Facebook and Twitter. It’s also got its own web client built in to make reading the RSS feeds full post a breeze.
All in all I really love Feedly and its features, and I’m yet to find anything which comes close to it. What are you waiting for? Get it downloaded!
