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.
