Feedly for IPhone

I am an  avid Feedly user and have reviewed Feedly earlier here. There is no doubt in my mind that Feedly seems to be the best client for Digesting Feeds using Google reader. Since I also own an IPhone,  I recently gave Feedly for IPhone a try and here’s how I liked.

Given that  I already use the desktop version on my chrome, I knew how Feedly works and what features it has on the desktop, I had a little higher expectations from it from the mobile app.  Feedly does deliver on most of my expectations.

The Interface, the home screen  and the way the app behaves resemble the desktop version which is really nice and consistent.  The app syncs perfectly with your Google reader account and all your feeds are at your disposal for consumption.

Majority of the social features are present in the app, a few that are missing are to share on Delcious, Tumblr, Evernote, Linkedin etc which seemed to be the only expectation Feedly on the IPhone did not fulfill. The features like Instapaper, Readabilty, Read it later  are available in the latest app version.   Moving forward the remaining features from the desktop version should be available as well.

Feedly doesn’t yet have an offline feature implemented like Reeder, Which is the most popular feed reader for the IPhone. But if you have an Instapaper account like me, your offline issues could be solved partially.  Instapaper by Marco Arment is a great app as well, which I would really recommend you to try.  One can just glance through the feeds and select feeds required for offline reading and send them to Instapaper to read offline. If you are not looking for offline capability, Feedly would be the right app for your feed reader requirements. Feedly is also available for Android and IPad. Browse their homepage for your version.   How do you like Feedly for Iphone. Do you have any other app suggestions. I would love to hear from you.

UPDATE : As of May 3rd Feedly is available for Ipad and Android as well.
