Google Play Description
“Feedly is a new way to browse the content of your favorite news sites, RSS feeds, Tumblr blogs and YouTube channels. Instead of having to hunt down for news, feedly uses RSS to aggregate the contents of the news sites and blogs you like and deliver them as a fast mobile-optimized experience.
Taken from Nexus 4
Feedly is an RSS news reader re-imagined for android phones and tablets. It makes browsing faster and more fun: the content of your RSS feeds, news sites and blogs are transformed into pocket-sized cards which load very fast and are easy to browse.
The Feedly UI is custom tailored for a 4" phone, a 7" tablet and a 10" tablet. If you run Feedly on a tablet, you will get an experience which is very close to a personalized magazine: a really fun way to track and read your favorite blogs.
When you run Feedly on a phone and on a tablet, the configuration will automatically syncs between both devices.
Feedly makes sharing content on twitter, Facebook and google+ very simple, either directly or using Buffer. We also offer integration with Pocket, Instapaper and Evernote.
Feedly delivers all your favorite news in one place.”

Feedly News Reader is one of the most popular news readers available for the mobile platform.


What is it?
Feedly is a RSS reader that delivers news too you in a simplistic clean manner.

The good:
-        Simplistic Design
-        Not a data hog
-        Ability to browse / read stories quickly
-        Ability to play videos in app
-        Syncs across devices fairly quickly
-        You can easily share stories with friends and followers

The Bad:
-        Day and Night themes changes aren’t done automatically
-        Can’t merge content folders
-   Unable to select text from stories 

The Ugly:
Face you get when you cant load feeds.... 
-        Since using Feedly I experienced this 2x when it the app would load any feeds even after a reboot.


My Thoughts:
Feedly is now my current and favorite news reader (before it was paperboy). It is simplistic plus feature rich. I have rarely had issues with it (so far and I’ve been using it for about a week and a half).

Recommendation:
If you like being in the know and follow a lot of news feeds this app may be for you... It makes running through 100's of stories a breeze.
