Feedly – an application for mobile devices with the Android and iOS operating system (or via a web browser), which gives you the ability to instantly and seamlessly view news from your favorite websites. You can log in to Feedly using a Google+, Twitter, Facebook, Microsoft or Evernote account.

Feedly is a secure space where you can privately organize and research the topics and trends that matter to you. Feedly is funded by the community that uses it. This means we can focus on optimizing your time, instead of creating a feed that mines your attention.

Key features:
– Organize and read all your trusted publications and blogs in one place
– Train Leo, your AI research assistant, to read your feeds and filter out the noise
– Collaboratively research and share key industry trends

The big advantage of Feedly is ability to configure and synchronize with other services. The application allows you to easily use a selected post-saving service, such as Pocket, connect Feedly with Twitter, send news on Google+ or Facebook. It also allows you to save selected threads for later inside the site.

Feedly has very simple and intuitive navigation. In the main part, the application displays new messages, however a column on the left shows sources that you can easily switch between.

The great advantage of the reader is ability to display news in various ways. Feedly offers 4 ways to display news: in a form of a list, a list with photos, extended headers or in one news mode – one page.
