Feedly (stylized as feedly) is a news aggregator application for various web browsers and mobile devices running iOS and Android. It is also available as a cloud-based service. It compiles news feeds from a variety of online sources for the user to customize and share with others.
Feedly aggregates, or collects, RSS feeds. An RSS feed provides a method for websites to publish information once and syndicate it automatically amongst millions of subscribers. An aggregator captures, and organizes, feeds to simplify the consumption of news. No longer do we need to constantly revisit the same site, wondering what’s new. Now we only need add RSS feeds to our reader, also known as aggregators, and wait for the news to come to us.

Feedly comes jam-packed with features that any beginning user will want to learn. Seven key features stand out: Feedly mini, the browser plug-in (currently not available); Buffer Button for social media; the toolbar for social media sharing; the “Must Read” feature; how-to add new content; some of Feedly’s varying layouts; a variety of custom colors and themes.
Feedly offers four differing layouts, which you can change from the top right-hand side of the screen. The four options are: List, magazine, cards and full article. You can switch between the two by clicking on the rightward pointing arrow or you can click on each view individually.
List: List mode displays RSS feeds in pure text, displaying only the title of the article and the first few lines of its text.
Magazine: Magazine mode includes a thumbnail picture from the article’s featured image. Like List mode, Magazine mode provides a terse list of articles and provides utility to anyone that requires seeing each article’s featured image.
Cards: Cards includes a bit more information than either list or magazine display. When you click on any item from within Cards view, the card enlarges, showing some text from the body, the featured image, the tool bar and a direct link to the full text. You can close a card by clicking on the “x” in the upper-right corner of the card.
Full Article: Full article includes the most amount of information, but covers the fewest number of articles. This display mode will mark each article as read as you scroll past them, however, which some users may desire for speedy reading.
