With Google shutting down its RSS aggregation platform Google Reader in July, several companies have pledged to build a better reader, with existing news aggregator Feedly among them.
Soon after the shutdown announcement, Feedly revealed that it had developed a clone of the Google Reader API called Normandy, which got it instant attention from former Google Reader users. Less than a month later, Feedly has garnered more than three million new users, prompting the company to release a significant update to its iOS app.
Version 14 of Feedly for iOS offers a new feed search engine with a search algorithm designed to help users find unique content.
The smart topic completion feature enables a truly intuitive search and discovery experience. The new search algorithm leverages millions of interactions from the Feedly community, helping you find the best feeds on the web. There are already millions of people using Feedly, and more and more joining every day. The more you use Feedly to search, categorize and follow your favorite feeds, the better our search and discovery will become.
A "Must Read" section allows users to aggregate their most read feeds in one easy to access spot, pull to refresh has been added, and a new title only view makes headline scanning quicker. Here's a full list of the updates:
