iOS Feedly App Gets Speed Reading, Night Theme & New iPad Design

Mark O'Neill 20-01-2014

When Google Reader was retired, Feedly became the replacement for many users. Now Feedly has pushed out an update for its iOS app, which includes great new features such as speed reading, a night theme, and a whole new design for the iPad. These features have already been on the Android app for a couple of weeks.


The speed reading feature involves the user tapping the edge of the screen to quickly go through news stories, and you can organize them as cards to make them easier to read. If you have a lot of feeds, being able to quickly flick through the titles to find the ones that interest you will save you a lot of time.

Feedly now also has a feature which is a personal favourite of mine  – a night theme. This makes the background black and all text colours white or grey. This is particularly helpful if you like to read in bed, but there is someone else lying next to you sleeping. A night theme will not waken them, as the screen is no longer bright. It is also calming on the eyes, which is nice when you are tired later in the evening.

Add in the fact that there is now a completely new design for iPad users, and image processing has been sped up, and this amounts to an update all Feedly users will appreciate.

      Windows 8 is more used than OSX and Linux combined. Windows Phone outsells iOS in many markets. Both of these are far from dead.
