Feedly recently relaunched its app for iOS and Android in response to increased demand for its app since Google announced that it will shut down Google Reader by July 1, 2013.

The new app is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android phones & tablets. Moreover, the new Feedly app will have a slew of new features most of which were developed using customer feedback and information. These features include an improved search and discovery engine, a smart topic completion feature, a “Must Read” section and improvements on content sharing.

According to Feedly, the apps now have a revamped search and discovery engine that improves the speed of searching and brings over 50 million RSS feeds to the search engine’s index. Moreover, the App is said to use a new algorithm that recommends certain feeds based on popularity and is designed to improve over time as a user search, categorise, follows and favourite feeds.

A Smart Topic completion function is also added to the app which lets users find new feeds even on smaller screens and reduces the amount of typing when searching. A Must Reads feature has also been added that lets users to track most=watched feeds without the need for special folders.

Improvements on content sharing have also been added to the app. Feedly now supports Google+ on top of other sharing options (including Pocket and Buffer) that will appear on the main toolbar. The app also took some hints from Google Reader and now features a “title-only” compact view.

Feedly is now available on the Apple App Store, Google’s Play Store and Chrome’s webstore for Free.
