    If you're running an online business, you should create social media posts at least 4 or 5 times per week. A pretty difficult feat if you want your content to be fresh. You need a good, concise digest of the latest news and trends so that your content always stays current.

  • Five Stars for giving us Feedly Classic Jan 25, 2019

    By famiclone
    I’m not angry at the new design, because you gave us an option to go back to the old way. But, I hope you address the UI issues and draw me back to the main app. I tried the new design, but overall it’s much slower and inefficient to use. I’m a power user, so my use case is to digest hundreds of articles more than the average user. Please bring back the stacks and list view, I like to flip page by page very quickly through hundreds of articles. With magazine view, the new design shows half an article at the bottom and when I scroll to the next page I have to find where I left off. It also wastes space, even less unique articles on the screen at any given time as one is usually split. The old Feedly had 6 articles on a page with list/magazine view, now 3 and a half. The animations are also significantly slower, which adds up going through hundreds of articles (especially when there are about half the articles on the screen now). So again, thank you for giving me the choice to go back. I will use that for now until you address these issues.

  • Another update that didn’t need to be done Dec 21, 2018

    By LeeGeeeeeee
    *update* I just updated to this latest release. I have to give you props for listening to your users. I don’t know about others but it looks like you have at least addressed my biggest concerns. Of course my needs don’t sound as complex as what a lot of people are doing. Just want to be able to attach to several feeds, read my news and not have to jump through hoops to do it. I might actually be able to use this version. I will at least give it a try. I loved Feedly, read it everyday. It was clear and simple to set up and use. Now it’s practically indecipherable to me. Developers just seem to want to make changes whether they are actually improvements or not. Making an app more complicated to use is definitely not an improvement. How do I go back to the old version? Switched to Feedly classic. I wonder how many of the few positive reviews of the new version are actually posted by Feedly employees, because I have a hard time believing that anyone would like having to go through more steps to get the same results. For instance, old Feedly click on an article go immediately to web page. New Feedly, it takes you to another page that may have two more lines of information. Then you have to click again to go to web page. What a boneheaded change. I sometimes think developers live in their own little universe and don’t really think through how things are going to work in the real universe.

    The app is pretty decent, but if you use the widgets, they don't update unless you open the app, and even then, frequently it won't update anyway without force clearing the cache manually. So it's always leaving the same stories on your home screen for weeks at a time. I'm on the current build. I had hoped this would replace the google news feed, but it seems I might need to switch back to another app, or the built in one.
  • Why?!? A huge step backwards. Dec 6, 2018

    By CAS3000
    I use Feedly daily and have truly loved the app but these new UI changes are a HUGE step backwards. Amongst other problems the new layout renders a process that used to be more dynamic incredibly boring. On a phone it might not be so bad and probably makes a lot of sense, but the limitations on an iPad are pretty miserable. The randomness of layout and variation of image sizes used to give more of a magazine like reading experience and now what’s being presented has all the charisma of the results of a Google search. PLEASE undo this or give more options to return to what it was prior. Haven't given up on the app yet given how long I’ve truly enjoyed it BUT can’t imagine continuing to use it for too long in this form. Originally gave this a single star but am raising my rating slightly. I still don’t like the bulk of the changes in this new version but I do appreciate that the developer has given us the option to use what I think is a preferable UI in another app now called 'classic'. That said, I wish the new app had been something one opted into with the old one simply renamed rather than throwing users into something so different via an 'upgrade' like this. Moves like that always make me a little distrustful of developers and less likely to opt into in app purchases, etc. That said, the ability to download 'classic' addresses that distrust a bit.

    I didn't had any expectations on this app, but this app is great! Very easy interface, supports most of the websites, so we can get every information from all websites we like in a single app. We can create only 3 sections, where we can arrange websites, like Technology, Business, Politics, etc... We won't get any notifications about news, which is great and also annoying. Most of the time I just forgets about the app, so a notification would be great. Good experience.
  • In Support of 54.0.0 Dec 12, 2018

    By gwakie
    I've read some of the backlash and some do have valid points. Overall I think the developers addressed the usability on the iPhone. With the screens getting larger and larger and with most folks being right handed, the UI changes make sense. They've made it a lot more usable with a single have. The UI transitions are nice. Being able to tie an article to multiple boards at once is also nice. I'd like to be able to swipe it away when I'm done though, in the same vain of making it more usable by not having to reach the top button to close it. On the iPad I've noticed better support for the  pencil where it was barely usable before. Thank you!!! I do miss the way the articles and images changed sizes and layouts when switching between landscape and portrait mode though, it felt more dynamic and engaging. Overall I love the changes. Great job guys!!!

    A few issues that will likely have me stop using this promising app: - I cannot upgrade from Pro to Pro+ without contacting support; as suggested in the App I had cancelled Pro (during the trial) and could no longer find a way to upgrade again - The website still shows my account as "free", upgrading on web is only possible with an annual credit card payment of $99 which I'd not be willing to do at this stage, since I haven't had the chance to test "Leo" which is only available in Pro+
  • When will “Sign in with Apple” be available? Oct 12, 2019

    By MattZombieBear
    Love the app, but any five star app need “Sign in with Apple”. Displaying a Sign in with Apple button in your app or website means that people can sign in or sign up with just a tap using the Apple ID they already have, and skip filling out forms, verifying email addresses, and choosing passwords. Sign in with Apple provides a new, more private way to simply and quickly sign into apps and websites while giving people a consistent sign-in experience they can trust and the convenience of not having to remember multiple accounts and passwords. In cases where you choose to ask for a name and email address, people have the option to keep their email address private and share a unique, random email address instead. For developer guidance, see AuthenticationServices. Sign in with Apple makes it easy for people to authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID and has two-factor authentication built in for an added layer of security. Apple does not use Sign in with Apple to profile users or their activity in apps.

    ⚫ Bug: when an ad is scrolled to the top edge, it doesn't get marked as read, instead the article below it gets prematurely marked as read. ⚫ The Android status bar items are white on the white Feedly theme, thus they're illegible. ⚫ Please add a proportional scroll bar to articles so I can see how long an article is and how far along I've read. ⚫ Please display Youtube video descriptions like on Feedly web.

    Decided to give it another try. Getting rid of ads is a great reason to use RSS, but nope... Feedly puts em right back in. I was like no prob, I can buy a pro version. But nope. It's a subscription. 8 bucks a month😒 You can't even save a feed with creating an account. One assumes that's so they can track and harvest. I find myself very frustrated by being unable go find an app that just brings you the RSS without a bunch of nonsense added on. It's supposed to be simple. Really simple.

    Such an old app but still not made for 60% of humans due to awfully small font size that you can't change. Nor you can change the contrast or any other spec to make this app more accessible for humans with weaker eyesight. Freely is hard to use for people with physical limitations.
  • Super weird bug happening Sep 3, 2018

    By Greenvino
    I have grown accustomed to seeing this message that says something like, “JavaScript is not supported in this browser.” If I really wanted to know what was in that blank space on the screen, I open in Safari or something and there it is. I dug deep into phone and app settings and found no suggestions online that fixed it. They “browser” problem is really just specific to Feedly. Lately, some content is now showing up where it used to be blank, which would be an improvement—only now a finger swipe over that part of the page is being translated into a finger tap. A long 10-second freeze later, a random site opens up where the image of a purse or whatever can be purchased. Only I never tapped the image. Ugh. Been experimenting to make sure it wasn’t just my “technique.” Nope, it’s not me. And to make matters worse, Feedly then freezes entirely after that. I can’t open the next item in my feed unless I close and open the app entirely. It’s so weird and ridiculous. And I’m still seeing the “JavaScript not supported” message pretty often, so that problem is still there as well. Why can’t all this silliness be fixed once and for all?

  • Pro features need to be labeled clearly Jun 10, 2019

    By Hippohumongous
    Currently they're not labeled at all. If you want to search articles, you'll get a message overlaying the search results telling you "get Power search!". But what if i just want regular search? 🤔 There's no button to close the overlay, making me think power search is the only way...and it takes me to a window sign up for Pro. This also happens on the desktop version btw, so I think this is more deception than bad design. Another example is when they announced the revamp with new features and we can filter out articles by phrases or keywords. But there was no option for me to enable this in the settings and after a bit of searching, found that this is a Pro only feature, WHICH they neglected to mention in the blog post. Nice. I'm not against companies wanting to make money and I think subscription models are appropriate for online services like Feedly (that have to run on servers in order to work). But users should have a choice and we should not be deceived by Pro only features. Things like search, have it grayed it and label it Pro Only. Done. This whole thing was irritating enough for me to shell out $5 for Reeder. Good riddance.

    I've been happily using this for years. Today, after the most recent update, it is literally unusable. It insists I login, which wasn't even an option yesterday. However, it pops up errors when I try to create an account so I can login. So, I am really incapable of using it now.

  • Switching back to Feedly Classic Feb 11, 2019

    By GregV8
    I’m not the one who is sour about every new version of every product. Generally, I like when things evolve and move forward. However, I think Feedly missed the point. The old version was just so much more “comfortable” to use. I find that swipe gestures in this new app are much more strict and unforgiving. It’s literally painful to operate this app because you have to get the angle of the swipes so precisely otherwise they won’t work. I just now switched back to the older style “Feedly Classic” app which works wonderfully. There is one feature I miss from the classic app - that is the ability to search across all articles. (For the record, the new version doesn’t get it right either.) I am syncing with Google and have an extensive set of feeds, neatly organized. I’d like to be able to find older articles by searching for key words. The pro subscription feature is not interesting to me. Would be OK paying a one-time fee to upgrade, but not willing to make ongoing payments, especially not one this high.
  • Apr 21, 2021

    By _
    Too much gestures for closing current article (overscroll top/bottom; swipe left/right; double tap; tap with two fingers; ) – leave only overscroll bottom one, as it makes most sense (scrolling and dismissing an article after reading). Need an option to disable images dimming on dark theme; to disable Explore tab in Today. Widget is too barebones and useless, needs proper feed widget instead (with layout just like in the app itself)

  • The best gets better (once you find the hidden features) Dec 10, 2018

    By Bumblybreak
    I love the look and feel of the update in the phone format, especially the infinite-scroll. That must have taken a bunch of work! However, I was used to clearing a page of news articles five(ish?) items at a time and initially hated the new interface because it only let me clear items individually in magazine view. Now that I discovered “long pressing” a news article and the “mark above as read” feature, I’m absolutely in love! Feedly took my weird, hacky way of reading/clearing and made it super efficient; I just scroll/browse articles and clear/long press from time to time. This fits the mental map of how I use the app perfectly and I’m amazed they added this feature. The one improvement I’d make is to onboard the “mark above as read” feature more organically. When Feedly sees that I’ve marked a few items in a row as “read”, teach me about the “mark above as read” feature. I only discovered it out of frustration/disappointment that my old way of clearing articles was gone. There’s too much to learn in a big “onboarding” walkthrough. I was initially very disappointed in the app, but now that I know all the features, I’m absolutely thrilled at the visual refresh and usability improvements. Keep up the great work folks!
  • The first and only app that is not compatible with Apple Pencil Jun 7, 2021

    By jbrandonf
    I’ve loved and used this app since they shut down Google Reader. Overall, it’s simple, clean and easy to use. But it’s nearly impossible to use on an iPad with an Apple Pencil. I use the Pencil all the time to select things and use it because it is more precise and in every other app there’s no problem. With Feedly, when I try to click on a story to read the app will instead of ya know, opening the story, the app will actually scroll up or down ever so slightly. It literally takes 5-10 taps just to get the app to open the story. It’s ridiculous and frustrating and silly that Feedly behaves like this.

  • bad semi-offline experience in subway Dec 7, 2018

    By heiscook
    Had a very unpleasant user experience in places where you have intermitting wireless connection like subway, underground, etc. You’re not able to “mark an unread” and often get a blank screen with timeout, it then will forget your progress and you have to scroll all over again and again. While this was also not ideal with previous app(now classic) but much better. In this implementation this is hardly ever usable in such conditions. And this is a place where you do not have much options left for self entertainment except lets say mostly reading but still have to spend a substantial amount of time a day. Also would like to see “keep as unread” as a button while swiping articles and do not exit to list view when you hit “keep as unread” at the bottom, so you can continue swiping or even swipe to next article automatically.
  • Good, but one frustrating change Jan 30, 2018

    By Kuanyin888
    I used Feedly through the browser on my computer... But one recent change to the app makes it much less useful for me: the ability to turn sideways and get a "landscape" view was useful when reading small text and for enlarging small images.. the only workaround is to open the page in a browser (generally Chrome, because Safari seems to have the same issue now too) and when returning to Feedly the place in my feed is now lost. This is intensely frustrating and slows down my ability to use this tool to go through my feeds on my phone. I'm starting to avoid it, in fact, and it's reduced functionality is making me question whether I'm going to keep it on my phone.. on my tablet it's not as big an issue and the browser page is still great. Wish the app we're better...
  • The new UI is fine but... Dec 6, 2018

    By cbkosc
    Contrary to recent criticism, the new UI is fine. There are settings which allow for some personalization or, go back to something close to the old version. Feedly is a good app. A big change is that features that were once free are now a charge which is also ok, they deserve to make money for their efforts. The problem is the cost. I use Pocket and Feedly allowed me to save articles to Pocket with one touch. To have that same functionality they are now asking me to pay $72 per year. That’s a lot for one feature considering with a few swipes I can share to Pocket for free. Please reconsider your pricing structure. Also, I would have preferred to contact you privately about this but you do not provide any support information in your app. If support is only available to subscribers then say so in the app.

    Updating my review to ask for an "are you sure" dialog box when pressing the button to mark everything as read. It's too easy to clear out your list with a mistap.
  • Another update that didn’t need to be done Dec 21, 2018

    By LeeGeeeeeee
    *update* I just updated to this latest release. I have to give you props for listening to your users. I don’t know about others but it looks like you have at least addressed my biggest concerns. Of course my needs don’t sound as complex as what a lot of people are doing. Just want to be able to attach to several feeds, read my news and not have to jump through hoops to do it. I might actually be able to use this version. I will at least give it a try. I loved Feedly, read it everyday. It was clear and simple to set up and use. Now it’s practically indecipherable to me. Developers just seem to want to make changes whether they are actually improvements or not. Making an app more complicated to use is definitely not an improvement. How do I go back to the old version? Switched to Feedly classic. I wonder how many of the few positive reviews of the new version are actually posted by Feedly employees, because I have a hard time believing that anyone would like having to go through more steps to get the same results. For instance, old Feedly click on an article go immediately to web page. New Feedly, it takes you to another page that may have two more lines of information. Then you have to click again to go to web page. What a boneheaded change. I sometimes think developers live in their own little universe and don’t really think through how things are going to work in the real universe.

    The app is pretty decent, but if you use the widgets, they don't update unless you open the app, and even then, frequently it won't update anyway without force clearing the cache manually. So it's always leaving the same stories on your home screen for weeks at a time. I'm on the current build. I had hoped this would replace the google news feed, but it seems I might need to switch back to another app, or the built in one.
  • Why?!? A huge step backwards. Dec 6, 2018

    By CAS3000
    I use Feedly daily and have truly loved the app but these new UI changes are a HUGE step backwards. Amongst other problems the new layout renders a process that used to be more dynamic incredibly boring. On a phone it might not be so bad and probably makes a lot of sense, but the limitations on an iPad are pretty miserable. The randomness of layout and variation of image sizes used to give more of a magazine like reading experience and now what’s being presented has all the charisma of the results of a Google search. PLEASE undo this or give more options to return to what it was prior. Haven't given up on the app yet given how long I’ve truly enjoyed it BUT can’t imagine continuing to use it for too long in this form. Originally gave this a single star but am raising my rating slightly. I still don’t like the bulk of the changes in this new version but I do appreciate that the developer has given us the option to use what I think is a preferable UI in another app now called 'classic'. That said, I wish the new app had been something one opted into with the old one simply renamed rather than throwing users into something so different via an 'upgrade' like this. Moves like that always make me a little distrustful of developers and less likely to opt into in app purchases, etc. That said, the ability to download 'classic' addresses that distrust a bit.

    A few issues that will likely have me stop using this promising app: - I cannot upgrade from Pro to Pro+ without contacting support; as suggested in the App I had cancelled Pro (during the trial) and could no longer find a way to upgrade again - The website still shows my account as "free", upgrading on web is only possible with an annual credit card payment of $99 which I'd not be willing to do at this stage, since I haven't had the chance to test "Leo" which is only available in Pro+

    ⚫ Bug: when an ad is scrolled to the top edge, it doesn't get marked as read, instead the article below it gets prematurely marked as read. ⚫ The Android status bar items are white on the white Feedly theme, thus they're illegible. ⚫ Please add a proportional scroll bar to articles so I can see how long an article is and how far along I've read. ⚫ Please display Youtube video descriptions like on Feedly web.
  • Please no happy “you’re done!” cartoons Apr 25, 2019

    By KimiTX
    Because when I’ve just read a comic or a fun article about skin care or whatever, that would be fine, but when I’ve just read a dark, depressing news item about people dying or the economy tanking, it is SUPER jarring and weird to see a happy smiling ‘toon congratulating me for reading all the things. And it’s more often that second situation that the first, so...please. I wrote a similar review a few years back when y’all decided a chipper cartoon dinosaur was what people needed after they finished reading the news. I discovered that one for the first time literally after reading about a hate crime, and it was awful. The dinosaur went away quickly and I can only assume it was because others felt much as I do. The only comics I need in my Feedly are the ones I subscribe to. Please no smiley congratulatory cartoon figures, anywhere. Or at least give us an way to opt out of that. All that’s needed is the green check mark. Less is more.

    I have been using this app on my Android phones (& laptop) for many years. I don't have auto-update of apps on my phone. Today I upgraded many apps and mysteriously Feely doesn't work anymore! It prompts me to login and when I pick my Google email id, all I see is "login failed". Bad.
  • Update is a step backwards Dec 8, 2018

    By RedneckButlerBoy
    I’ve used Feedly ever since Google shut down Reader and some of the new UI updates are frustrating. First, I can no longer press and hold to add to read later. I don’t want or need the extra steps to add it to folders, that just makes for extra unnecessary steps. The second is not having an option to jump straight to the Safari browser. Some webpages I just know aren’t going to work for me in the browser in the app. An example that comes to mind is the free apps of the day that BGR puts out. Clicking on links to the App Store is better done through Safari so I don’t have to reload the page each time. The last thing that really bugs me admittedly doesn’t hurt the functionality but I very much dislike the pictures being on the right. It just doesn’t look right. I prefer the pictures on the left with the text preview on the right.

    By Ihtesham Emon
    I'd say great user interface+design. But the thing that bothers me much is I can only read a portion of the news in the app and then I've to click again & load the full website page, that's tiring doing everytime. Smart news app solved this problem amazingly.
  • People don’t like change but... Dec 14, 2018

    By Catalogue Michael
    Sometimes change is necessary to move the product forward so that is relevant to new users. But let’s be honest, this rollout was done very poorly. A lot of the things many people miss about the old version actually are available in the new one if you dig into the settings. But unfortunately Feedly didn’t see fit to provide any instruction on how to find them. They have been very responsive on Twitter, which is good. And some of the things I can’t do anymore have been replaced by arguably better features. Unfortunately it was annoyingly hard to figure out how to use these new features and cost me way too much time. For what it’s worth I would recommend rolling out changes incrementally rather than overhauling the whole system all at once. Two last points: 1. One thing Feedly did correctly was to make their old version available in the iTunes Store. It is called Feedly classic. So everyone who’s complaining about the update can simply download the app. 2. Give an optometrist a call. Both your day and tonight settings are not ideal for the eyes. There’s a very simple contrast and color palette you can implement that would be much better for day and night. This is one of the things I was really hoping would be fixed in the new version.
  • May 28, 2021

    By Владимир Бязров
    Such an old app but still not made for 60% of humans due to awfully small font size that you can't change. Nor you can change the contrast or any other spec to make this app more accessible for humans with weaker eyesight. Freely is hard to use for people with physical limitations.
  • Super weird bug happening Sep 3, 2018

    By Greenvino
    I have grown accustomed to seeing this message that says something like, “JavaScript is not supported in this browser.” If I really wanted to know what was in that blank space on the screen, I open in Safari or something and there it is. I dug deep into phone and app settings and found no suggestions online that fixed it. They “browser” problem is really just specific to Feedly. Lately, some content is now showing up where it used to be blank, which would be an improvement—only now a finger swipe over that part of the page is being translated into a finger tap. A long 10-second freeze later, a random site opens up where the image of a purse or whatever can be purchased. Only I never tapped the image. Ugh. Been experimenting to make sure it wasn’t just my “technique.” Nope, it’s not me. And to make matters worse, Feedly then freezes entirely after that. I can’t open the next item in my feed unless I close and open the app entirely. It’s so weird and ridiculous. And I’m still seeing the “JavaScript not supported” message pretty often, so that problem is still there as well. Why can’t all this silliness be fixed once and for all?

    The app always did the job, but it's not showing the latest articles. I've checked the sources I follow and they uploaded new articles, and feedly doesn't have anything for days. Please fix this!
  • Pro features need to be labeled clearly Jun 10, 2019

    By Hippohumongous
    Currently they're not labeled at all. If you want to search articles, you'll get a message overlaying the search results telling you "get Power search!". But what if i just want regular search? 🤔 There's no button to close the overlay, making me think power search is the only way...and it takes me to a window sign up for Pro. This also happens on the desktop version btw, so I think this is more deception than bad design. Another example is when they announced the revamp with new features and we can filter out articles by phrases or keywords. But there was no option for me to enable this in the settings and after a bit of searching, found that this is a Pro only feature, WHICH they neglected to mention in the blog post. Nice. I'm not against companies wanting to make money and I think subscription models are appropriate for online services like Feedly (that have to run on servers in order to work). But users should have a choice and we should not be deceived by Pro only features. Things like search, have it grayed it and label it Pro Only. Done. This whole thing was irritating enough for me to shell out $5 for Reeder. Good riddance.
  • Switching back to Feedly Classic Feb 11, 2019

    By GregV8
    I’m not the one who is sour about every new version of every product. Generally, I like when things evolve and move forward. However, I think Feedly missed the point. The old version was just so much more “comfortable” to use. I find that swipe gestures in this new app are much more strict and unforgiving. It’s literally painful to operate this app because you have to get the angle of the swipes so precisely otherwise they won’t work. I just now switched back to the older style “Feedly Classic” app which works wonderfully. There is one feature I miss from the classic app - that is the ability to search across all articles. (For the record, the new version doesn’t get it right either.) I am syncing with Google and have an extensive set of feeds, neatly organized. I’d like to be able to find older articles by searching for key words. The pro subscription feature is not interesting to me. Would be OK paying a one-time fee to upgrade, but not willing to make ongoing payments, especially not one this high.

    Too much gestures for closing current article (overscroll top/bottom; swipe left/right; double tap; tap with two fingers; ) – leave only overscroll bottom one, as it makes most sense (scrolling and dismissing an article after reading). Need an option to disable images dimming on dark theme; to disable Explore tab in Today. Widget is too barebones and useless, needs proper feed widget instead (with layout just like in the app itself)

    Keeps losing my feeds. Just fired it up for the last time - I shouldn't have to keep adding the same feeds every couple of weeks. I don't run any kind of cache cleaners or run anything to flush data, and I have loads of space. Good when it works.

    By Some Person
    Decided to give it another try. Getting rid of ads is a great reason to use RSS, but nope... Feedly puts em right back in. I was like no prob, I can buy a pro version. But nope. It's a subscription. 8 bucks a month😒 You can't even save a feed with creating an account. One assumes that's so they can track and harvest. I find myself very frustrated by being unable go find an app that just brings you the RSS without a bunch of nonsense added on. It's supposed to be simple. Really simple.

    I've been happily using this for years. Today, after the most recent update, it is literally unusable. It insists I login, which wasn't even an option yesterday. However, it pops up errors when I try to create an account so I can login. So, I am really incapable of using it now.

    Why can't I read my news today? I open Feedly, and I get a screen to start a trial. There are usually options to skip a trial. This is always been five star app. I had to knock it down to one star until I could figure out what's going on. What happened?
  • Worst update in history Jan 1, 2019

    By reader not viewer
    Somehow y’all managed to make the most opened app on my phone utterly unusable. I don’t know which 4,000 users you consulted but they should just go download twitter or use apple news if they want more pictures than words. The most intriguing aspect of your app for me was the ability to immerse myself with readable content from a multitude of sources. Even just comparing the amount of articles displayed on screen in list type from old to new you can see the app was LITERALLY dumbed down with the update. Whoever was in charge of the new version of the app needs to be fired, that panel of 4,000 people should not be allowed to download the classic version, whoever was being snarky and committed the typo in the description of Classic version needs to be demoted or at least a reprimand letter, and promote or at least give a bonus to whoever saved your company from falling to newsify by putting out the Classic version. The second you change or mess with the classic version you will begin the timer to your company’s demise.

    Why require a login? Just store it on my phone. My choice if data is lost. Uninstalling before even using. UPDATE: Well aware of why you do it, just shouldn't be a required. There's the use-case of I only have 1 device. Still a 1 star, especially after that response.
  • I Guess I Just Don’t See The Point May 20, 2018

    By Rattleheadxyz
    When I heard about Feedly, I thought I would be great. But after using it, I just don’t see the point. Seriously, if the devs can contact me and explain why this is any better than simply visiting the websites individually, please do so! I guess I was under the impression that I would be able to truly customize exactly what appears in my feed. Here’s an example, I like video games, so I selected Kotaku as a feed source. But I wasn’t able to get any more granular than that. I wanted to have Kotaku content, but only for subjects that interested me. For example, I wanted Kotaku content for God of War, but I didn’t want any Kotaku content for Fortnite. The app doesn’t do that, instead I just get everything from Kotaku always. The same as if I was just visiting the website without Feedly. So, what’s the point? What’s the advantage? [Shrugs] I just don’t get it. If I could filter keywords or tags, etc to truly customize my feed, that would be great, but as it stands I see no value in this app.
