Press RSS reader, among others, also updated to support new Feedly services
Feedly, one of the leading Google Reader replacement services, announced major restructuring of its services today with a new cloud infrastructure and web interface. Posted on its official blog, Feedly unveiled what it calls "Feedly Cloud", a scalable infrastructure it says is ready to replace Google Reader. The new Feedly Cloud provides several benefits, the first of which is one-click import from Google Reader -- new users to the service can now simply pull everything over seamlessly from their Google account and start using Feedly right away.
Existing users will simply have to make sure that they have the latest version of Feedly installed, and their accounts will be migrated to Feedly Cloud over the next few days. Additionally, the new service allowed Feedly to create a stand-alone web interface (found simply at cloud.feedly.com) that works in all major browsers without plugins or extensions.
The transition to Feedly Cloud has another benefit, and that is the ability for third-party apps to plug into the service simply as well. Feedly says that a total of 9 apps -- including our favorite, Press, found at the Play Store link above -- are integrating with the new Cloud service. Feedly currently has over 12 million users and is processing 25 million feeds daily. With these new features it seems ready to handle the crunch of millions more fleeing from Google Reader in the next week.
