I loved the old one and like most of the new one 3/5
Here’s the deal. I love the new tools that come with Feedly. Marking things as read with a swipe and the scroll features are awesome. I have had the new version for a few weeks (as long as the newest version has been available) and there is one major problem. Websites like Gizmodo have new content that initially shows up as a preview. You click on “read more” and then it opens up the whole thing.
With this update every time you click on an article it opens up a new web page in safari rather than just open up the article within the app itself (which is what the old version did). Because I like progress and I really feel that they are moving the app in a great direction I stuck with it despite that issue. I searched Feedly forums and sent messages via twitter and never heard back about this issue or how to fix it. I thought that maybe I read in the forum that a newer version would fix that but it never came.
For now I am going to the classic version and might keep the new version on my phone and check it periodically to see if they fixed it. I don’t read articles on my phone because I hate the extra steps of clearing out open pages and saved articles are piling up and becoming irrelevant. It’s a first world problem that I don’t care to tolerate.
You should use Feedly and you should use the new version unless you read Gizmodo, in which case you should use the classic version.
False negative tap to “open image” is annoying. 1/5
Steps to reproduce.
1. Go to an article with an image in it
2. Put finger down on the image and try to scroll just a bit to the next article by swiping left or left. The scroll shouldn’t be significant enough to trigger a page turn.
3. Release finger.
Expected: nothing happens
Actual: opens the image in Safari.
Update is super clunky 3/5
By Franny 145
I loved Feedly. However this new update is terrible. They have added in several new clicks to go back and forth between feeds and there is no longer an integrated way to save articles to Instapaper-a must for periods without internet, like airplane rides. Feedly used to be a 5 Star app, however this update makes it a 3 Star app. Only ok.
Love the latest Release 5/5
The latest release is by far the best yet. I especially like the progress wheel with the count. That feature alone moved me from the web interface to the iPad app... GREAT Job!!
I’ve used Feedly ever since Google shutdown their RSS support. I use it on all platforms (iOS-iPad, Android, and Web on Win10). This by far the best news reader anywhere for RSS feeds. The only thing I’d like to see is a Windows 10 version of this app. There’s millions of people out there without a decent reader.
Era una gran aplicación 1/5
Con la ultima actualización su diseño es de lo peor.
I really dislike the scrolling options, so I don’t use it. I would like to see a continued smooth scroll like a web site.
This has been fixed!
Now for the love of Christ, can we please have notifications and a widget?!
Terrible Update 1/5
You need to hire a UX person as the latest updates makes the app difficult to use. The visuals are pleasing but the app is no longer usable. I guess the company agrees as they relaunched the previous version as “Feedly Classic”. That is a lot of overhead to support two versions just because the new version has poor UX.
Latest update is nice 3/5
By M Cat69
Last UI update is awful 1/5
I really thinking about changing the app
Missing features the old Feedly had 2/5
Continuous scrolling is good. Responsive app good. Moving the feeds button from upper left to lower left is bad. Removing the in app safari browser is terrible, as not all feeds contain the whole article and you are forced to jump to safari. Then to get back to Feedly you need to leave safari. But if you forget to close the tab then your safari fills up with tabs. Too. Many. Taps. Just add safari back to the app and this rating improves by a lot.
Need to fix this version 1/5
I’m a long-time user, i have Feedly installed on two iPads, iPhone, and Mac. This version is unusable. When I swipe thorough posts, every few ones end up opening the image from the post instead of next post. I HAD to switch to Feedly classic.
PLEASE TAKE OUT IMAGE OPENING IN WEB BROWSER 4/5
I love this app although my only complaint is whenever I read another article and accidentally press on the image, it will open in my default set browser. Please disable the ability to open the images.
Issues with recent versions 2/5
Showing duplicates. Also, I do not like the new interface. Tried to give it time but it’s clear I will not learn to like it. It’s inefficient and clumsy.
Frequent "no network" 2/5
After reading about 3 or 4 articles, it tells me "no network" and then I have to reload and then start over. This is really annoying and disruptive. Did not happen with the older version of the app
Almost perfect 5/5
Ad free experience is tough to get. Also it does exactly it is supposed to do: grab all the feeds I am interested.
One thing short 4/5
By discount sushi
I love using Feedly both online and in the app. However it as a couple of minor issues.
The biggest issues to me have to do with bookmarking articles. The green outline in the app for the Read Later icon is much harder to discern than the green fill used on the web version. They also added an additional step to mark an article as Read Later in the revamped app.
“Mark as Read” doesn’t always work 3/5
Scrolling through the feed and then selecting “Mark All Articles As Read” doesn’t usually work the first time selecting it. Must be done twice in order to actually mark your feed as read. Very annoying bug that was introduced with the new UI
Hate the new version 2/5
Can’t stand that it goes out of the app to read content... then you have to go back to the app to get more.
2 stars only because they continue the “classic” version.
Horrible changes 1/5
Hate the new layout, makes it very difficult to read, Miss the old features, no app support to give feedback to.
Unable to reach support 2/5
In the App store listing as well as the website, I'm unable to find a way to reach support other than to write a review. Please fix this! I need to send some feedback about the way an article was rendered recently and to include a screenshot.
I also miss the ability to quickly swipe to mark every visible article on the page as read. Instead we have to long press and choose "mark all above as read" which is not as fast at all.
Almost perfect! 4/5
By Barton Lynch
Please don’t automatically write in text the title of the article when sharing. Most services (iMessage, Facebook, Twitter) where you will be sharing articles will already show this text with the link
Lost functionality 1/5
Not sure how to describe it, but when you try opening a YouTube video, it goes to the built-in browser instead of the app. Before the latest update, you could do to the options menu on the upper right and select “Browser”. That would open the app. That option seems to be lost or hidden.
Why is anyone complaining? 5/5
Who could possibly be unhappy with this update? It's long overdue and looks great. Much better than the previous version's layout—which is still available in the Classic app for those who really want it. How much more thoughtful could be developers be? Well done, DevHD.
Why is it so easy to click on images, stop it! 3/5
$100 a year to save to Instapaper? 1/5
I'm willing to pay to support apps I use, but $8 a month is crazy. This isn't Netflix.
Update fixes so much!! 5/5
Thank u thank u! I hated the last update so much that I went to the individual news sites just to get my daily reads. I just got the message that Feedly was just updated and proceeded to download. I’m ecstatic to say that the feed is finally scrolling again without those single page displays. I’m happily back to using this app again
Feedly is dead, long live Feedly Classic. 2/5
By A Guy Who Runs
THREE UPDATES and the share menu is STILL missing the option to add articles to Safari's reading list.
UI of New Feedly is cluttered and inconvenient compared to Feedly Classic. Pointless changes and stupid oversights render New Feedly unusable. Throw this app in the garbage and install Feedly Classic instead.
Improve navigation from internal browser 5/5
I use Feedly every day and find it cumbersome navigating back to my feed from the internal browser. I’d like to suggest enabling a swipe back gesture to return to Feedly from the internal browser.
Bring Back Pocket for Free Users 1/5
Loss of pocket support for free users.
Normal features are now $8 per month 1/5
Functionality that once was standard is now premium under the name “new native integrations”. Eh, a breech of trust, I’ve been using this system for years and now they’re restricting features until I give them $96.
Open in Browser 5/5
Please reactivare the link to open in Browser or incluye in Share sheet
Hate the new design 2/5
I have used Feedly for quite some time now. Loved how quick and easy it was to use. The new style is slower and not as useful. I am glad they created the old format as a separate app rather that to force me to find a different app where else.
Disappointing update 1/5
I love Feedly. It’s probably my most-used app, and when the redesign came out I was eager to try it.
I’m very disappointed. The new app requires more work to read articles, and gives less information per page - which is important when you’re blowing through lots of feeds. It may be “pretty” (subjective - I think it’s less visually appealing than the classic app) but it’s definitely less useful.
Also, removing functionality (search) unless you pay a recurring subscription is just wrong.
Thanks for keeping Feedly Classic around.
Previous version way better 1/5
Old features now paid 1/5
Ugh, $96/year for 3rd party integrations. Will stick with Feedly Classic or look elsewhere.
Weird transition when opening / closing articles 2/5
By Saltine Hammer
This new version is getting a little better, but that scaling transition / animation that occurs when opening or closing an article just feels weird. The swipe / slide over from the old version of the app works much better and seems more intuitive. It's a better visual representation for a page turn.
Big Red Bar 2/5
By M Du
I used to like Feedly but now using with connectivity issue like on the subway delivers a big red bar. Why? I wish it could cache articles like it used to. You sure earned your second star. The new reader features are nice but there isn’t a way to configure certain sources to be displayed in specific ways. Here’s hoping for improvements.
Huge improvement 5/5
Didn't think it could get better but it did! I like the new format.
By Chetty b
Idk about this. I still prefer the old feedly because it feels faster to use and one thing i wish they include in the new update is badge count which obviously didnt happen. 😠
Recent changes huge improvement 5/5
I always liked Feedly now I love it. Thank you for making the scrolling interface and updating for it to look so beautiful on the XS Max screen. The gestures to read later/mark as read are a welcome addition. The night mode is excellent. So much good stuff, sure I will find more improvements as I use it more now. Was really getting tired of Google News, glad to come back to Feedly. A big Thank You to their UI team, MAHALO!
What were they thinking? 3/5
A very solid, no frills newsreader has been suddenly downgraded to a confusing, random, unworkable hodgepodge. My guess is an overly ambitious and inexperienced UI developer went way beyond reason to “upgrade” instead of simply refine. Sadly, Feedly is currently a mess. Search symbol is only there as an access link to the “power search” mode, but not for finding/adding content? Get back to work, devs.
Latest UI update is terrible. 3/5
Feels counter intuitive.
Why can’t I just long press to save anymore? 3/5
I get the feature push to grow premium users but having to do 4 taps in all areas of the screen to replicate the previous long press upsetting. Bring back the long press for read later and it’s 5 stars.
Yuk, they turned a great app into a disaster 1/5
Fortunately, there’s Reeder which seems to behave the way Feedly used to work. Switched over, no regrets.
Worst update in history 1/5
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.
New app getting better 4/5
Honestly I still prefer the classic app. The new app is getting better, I hope they work or some of the user interface kinks soon. I love Feedly and support them because overall it's a great product.
New update is a huge setback 1/5
The page based scrolling was the reason I really enjoyed Feedly. Please bring this feature back. I’m thankful the classic version exists.
Needs to be fixed 1/5
After the new design, when I choose option "scroll by pages" the last article on each page shifts down and I only see half of it, like it's cut in half horizontally. When I mark as read by force scrolling up after the end of each feed, it doesn't really mark the past articles as read and I keep finding my self reading them again, even though I chose option "show only unread articles"
New isn’t always better. 1/5
This ain’t a matter of just not liking change. I’m down for change when it improves and innovates. Feedly made things more difficult like tagging a story to read later used to be a long press of the story or a tap of the bookmark tag now i have to open the story and then hit the book mark and then select a category for the bookmark. More steps is not streamlining it’s just frustrating.
The app also losses connection every 5 min and then reload the stories. Crazy unstable.
I don’t want to rant but it’s not there yet feedly.
