Very frustrating UI 2/5
The redesign of this app took it from being a favorite to one of the most frustrating apps on my phone. It’s attractive but, at least for someone with many feeds, nearly unusable. Sometimes it gives me a dozen or so items to review at a time. Sometimes it’s hundreds. Sometimes, annoyingly, it’s one at a time. Over. And. Over. Sometimes paging through the review list works. Sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes when I swipe it marks an article for later review. Sometimes it slides over the feed list. Sometimes it scrolls down. It’s a maze of inconsistent behaviors. Time to move on.
Still no mark until here as read 3/5
New UI is great, unlike what others say. Thanks for getting rid of the blinding launch screen (though, that took years to figure out 😅). But, still... no “mark to here as read” feature. See Newsify. So you not test your competitors? Do you guys really have UX designers? 🤦♂️
Totally screwed 1/5
This version stoped working.
It doesn’t do auto read.
It doesn’t load new articles, even if it tells there are more new ones.
And finally, no way to post feedback for kind of problems.
Good design horrible bugs 2/5
Feedly was my hope after death of gooder, it have nice design and if working is very useful but after last update it crash opening and I surprised how can possible!!!
Login doesn’t exist! 1/5
This service has zero technical support. I am logged into Feedly with an account that is displayed. But when I try to login on my desktop with the same account it says the account doesn’t exist! Makes zero sense, no online documentation for how to solve this and no tech support. I’ve been a user for 5+ years (since google reader was killed) and would like to not lose all of that data.
Latest version badly glitches 1/5
I load a page, and then it keeps reloading constantly so that I can’t read it. 👿. Please roll the version back because as it is now, it is unusable. I have many news articles waiting to be read. Once this is fixed, I will correct my review score,
Both This & Classic Feedly Censored? 1/5
Many of my past feeds no longer work since the update. Do not download this or download the classic. A particular feed updates on other RSS readers but not on Feedly products. One in particular I enjoy never updates. Is this censorship or has this company become a bureaucratic mess?
Wow $8 to just search. 3/5
Why does everything have to be a subscription? And $8 for what? Giving access to search. Good functional app, but I don’t see why it needs to be $8 a month. There are mediation and sports app subscriptions that are less than this and have more value. Not creating enough value for the price you’re charging.
Last update made the app almost unusable. It freeze all the time. Hope they will fix.
Se congela 3/5

En iphone 7 tiene un problema al compartir y publicar un post en google keep, luego se bloquea la app
Pls make offline reader / cache last loaded 4/5
Please make offline reader by caching last loaded material
Recent update borked 1/5
I think the most recent app broked the news refresh function. I only see “loading” and the spinning wheel. I would have to close the app and reopen. But when you change feeds the same thing happens again.
How did this update get through QA?!
More updates, new problems 1/5
After loading about 60 articles it freezes loading no more articles. Only option is to fully close out and reload and scroll through all the old articles again. A PITA. It happened the very first time after the update and every time since then on at least 6 different feeds. I hate when an update takes a 4 to 5 star product and makes it totally unusable. Switching back to my 3 star alternative that is at least stable through updates. I will check back again after the next update.
Better Experience 3/5
Horrible app 1/5
The resdesign was several years overdue, but come on. The tab bar where nothing is labeled and then you can’t even tell which one is active? And one “tab” actually opens a hamburger-style pull out menu? And the overflow and checkmark buttons in the nav bar look disabled, especially in dark mode.
I want a real iOS app.
As dated and clunky as the old design was, at least it was actually logical, unlike this one.
Edit (response to developer):
The green for marking the current tab is barely visible to my eyes. I didn’t even notice it until you pointed it out - not enough color contrast for proper accessibility.
And yes, it is wrong to use a tab bar to handle the display of an overflow menu. That’s not what tab bars are for. Not to mention the fact that hamburger menus are highly frowned upon by Apple designers for native applications. The fact that you had to ask that question proves the incompetence both of your UX team and dev team.
If you could fix these items I’d gladly update this to 5 stars.
With all that being said, this app does feel sleek on the 2018 iPad Pro.
I love ❤️ Feedly! I can’t say a bad thing about it BUT I can’t find “The Unreads”. Let me explain. I didn’t know that an article I saved to “Read Later” and “Favourites” had the potential to be Spam. I wanted to delete it. I saw the article in “Read Later” but could not find the way to actually delete it. It ended up in “Keep Unread”. Huh? I have searched and searched by the Title, everything. I can’t find the article at all. I give up! If it’s truly Spam then I’m had. What can I do? Suggestion: PLEASE MAKE A WAY THAT SOMETHING CAN BE DELETED SO PEOPLE CAN HAVE A PEACE OF MIND AND NOT BE FRAZZLED!!!!!!!!! Thank you.
Mostly good. Need more settings. 4/5
I am using the app everyday. It worked great on iPad mini, but after a recent migration to 11” iPad Pro, the page layout looks unreadable. It’s too much text on a line. The app has only font size adjustments, but it would be great to allow setting page margins. Otherwise the main purpose of the app to read long texts is defeated on bigger screens...
Can’t add to safari reading list 2/5
What happened to Safari reading list in the share sheet.
No network 3/5
By Onur the Doc
After the last update I keep getting no network error (I have a connection. Other apps work just fine). It is very slow to load feeds.
The best RSS reader 5/5
I like the new UI. For me, Feedly is the easiest and most intuitive to keep up on my RSS feeds.
Always Reliable 2/5
As an avid news reader, I have found Feedly to be even better than the old Google Reader. All of my news sources consolidated into a single, easy location. Great work!
With the newest update, I can no longer tweet an article and have the headline automatically carry over into the tweet. The settings related to this have also been removed. This was one of the main reasons I used Feedly. I’ll have to consider canceling my Feedly Pro subscription.
Hope better for user experience 5/5
Glad to see this app keeping update. Hope the team give more support and effort to the Feedly. RSS is a great thing.
And will always support you and the behind team!
Feedly is dead, long live Feedly Classic. 2/5
By A Guy Who Runs
Multiple updates and the share menu is STILL missing the option to add articles to Safari's reading list the way the (vastly) superior Feedly Classic can.
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.
Adding new feeds is terrible. 2/5
Adding new feed is incredibly and surprisingly terrible and takes a million unwanted and useless steps. It’s not just difficult but it’s extremely frustrating going back and forth for no reason. While all you needed to do was add the feed when you click the plus sign and boom. As easy as that. Why make it difficult unnecessarily.
Okay, but website is better than app 2/5
App is limited in its use. Can’t open multiple pages by right clicking, and figuring out to add or remove contact is a nightmare. I much prefer the regular website.
Switching back to Feedly Classic 2/5
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.
Thanks for Feedly Classic! 4/5
Long-term user of Feedly Pro here, and was thinking I might have to end my subscription due to the new UX. I use Feedly on my iPad, and it became unreadable— everything in little fonts, same size, small pictures. All 3 views were incredibly boring.
In searching the App Store for an alternative, I saw that I could go back to the old UX as a separate app ‘Feedly Classic’. So 4-stars to the developer for offering it, though frankly it should have been a view in the new app.
Better but sad to have to pay for old features 2/5
Too many features removed from classic version. Sharing to Safari Reader is gone. Saving to Instapaper by just tap and hold is gone. Compact view shows less than classic version did in the same space. Nice you added text size control but still prefer classic version.
No title 1/5
When I try to share article with Twitter on app, there is no title. It is bug the latest version
Missing a few key features 3/5
The latest update is okay but it’s still missing the ability to mark the entire page of articles as read. Bring that back please.
Switched to Feedly Classic 1/5
By Alex Dmtgu
I love the old Magazine view, new UI is unusable.
New versions remove useful features and add questionable new ones 2/5
This is still my feed reader of choice, but I am already looking at alternatives, because the latest iOS versions remove features with real, important accessibility value (like the ability to pick article font size and style), in favor of new ones with debatable importance (like forced infinite scrolling in articles of each feed or category). I am not sure how these features are selected for inclusion or exclusion, but seeing the options I use most go away is not an encouraging sign.
Missing features the old Feedly had - internal browser is back! 4/5
Update: at some point, safari was added back to the app as an “internal browser” option in settings. Now jut put the feeds button back at the top, (since navigation for the rest of the app is located there) and this rating is back to 5 stars.
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.
Redesigns are hard (Old review: Easily the best RSS reader I've used) 1/5
1/31/19 - Now you can’t edit content?? This app is a waste of time.
PROBLEMS introduced with 12/18 redesign:
Open in safari reader setting does not work- set to “off” and it still forces reading in Safari. Awful.
Back button at top of screen, other buttons at bottom. Pick one, Feedly.
Images can’t be “zoomed “ in app. Tap on or attempt to zoom in to any image and it opens in Safari. Slow and stupid and unnecessary change.
When a link opens in safari (even though you asked it NOT TO) the text size does not obey your settings for Safari OR Feedly - instead it defaults to a microscopic font.
Everything is SLOOOW. Much slower to swipe between articles than before.
When you finish reading a section, it takes you back to “Favorites “ rather than the next section as before.
Scrolling vs paging through articles setting does not stick. I prefer paging, but it keeps going back to scrolling...
THINGS I LIKE
Other reviewer‘s are not checking the settings, although I’m finding that the settings don’t seem to stick always...
Bottom controls are nice. Make them consistent please (back button?)
Night mode is truly black.
UI elements are cleaner and look nice
Swiping articles to favorite or mark as read is nice.
(Old review: Replacing Reeder with the upcoming demise of Google Reader. I'm very impressed, so far. Would like to see an option for smooth scrolling, but otherwise I basically have no complaints.
Just a small tweak... 5/5
Love Feedly, been using it since Google Reader gave up the ghost. I bought a lifetime subscription when I started. Money well spent. Just an observation about the latest UI redesign. Seems like a few taps were added to get to commonly used functionality and Switching to wire frame icons makes it very hard to see selected bookmarks versus unselected.
Switching back to classic 3/5
I gave it a solid try, I really did, but three clicks to label read later is incredibly frustrating. Totally messes with my workflow.
Also, the new spacing is awful. I quickly skim article intros and they are too spread out for me- extra scrolling.
I do like the new continuous scroll.
I appreciate that the classic version is still available.
Feedly do not open link from specific feed 2/5
Feedly tries to open a link to specific feed items but only shows a blank page.
How to do for open it from Feedly?
If I copy link then I can open it in browser separated, not from Feedly directly.
The UI is sometimes good and often infuriating.
How do I add an existing Feed to my Favorites?
Let's consider the logical ways:
Tap on the source, tap on the ". . ." In the corner, tap on "Following In"....and discover you can add this to any list except Favorites.
Here's another try:
Let's go to the Favorites list. Surely you can control which feeds appear in it there? Tap on Favorites, tap on ". . .", Tap on View Sources...and discover a list of existing Favorites but no mechanism for adding new Favorites (?!?!)
Ok, final try:
SURELY, you can add a feed to your Favorites when you first add it to Feedly. So, we find a feed, we tap the "+", and....we encounter a list of every channel *except* Favorites.
Seriously, am I delusional?
Does Favorites not even exist?
Is Feedly just a construct of my imagination??
No, I’m not all caught up 3/5
Why does it tell me that when I open the app? I’m not caught up with any.
And, where is the refresh button?
Still a fan...currently...but not a fan of the current iteration.
Please fix the way apostrophes display 5/5
Apostrophes don’t display in the headlines correctly. It’s something like &apos. Rather annoying and makes it harder to read the headlines. Please fix and restore my sanity!
Constant Red Connection Banner! 2/5
Occurs on both iPhone and iPad versions.
Five Stars for giving us Feedly Classic 5/5
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.
App has gone to hell 1/5
This app has gone to corporate hell - it won’t let me add feeds anymore - they think this is worth $100 a year - i think not.
Time to find a new RSS app and do this all over again.
Use old version 1/5
Old version much much easier and better experience.
A tad buggy 3/5
By Disco Dan sir
I like the new UI and functionality quite a bit. However, most times that I tap "Mark All As Read" and it refreshes, it shows the last two articles of the set I marked as read again. It's a pretty annoying user experience. If this is fixed in a future release, then I will probably change my review.
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.
