feedly + Google Now: Your most important stories, when you want them

feedly-googlenow

Feedly and Google have been collaborating on integrating feedly into Google Now so that your most important stories surface in your Google Now stream. We recently rolled out this feature in beta and are seeing a high 14% tap-through rate with the feedly cards. We are excited to announce that the feature is now being rolled out to everyone.

Your important stories come to you

We believe reading sparks magic moments when ideas, knowledge, and creativity seamlessly come together. It’s the core reason why we work so hard to make feedly the most efficient way to personalize and read the content that’s important to you.

We spend a lot of time talking to our users, and we know that most of you weave what you read into your everyday life—to get better at what you do, to keep you ahead of what’s going on, to stay inspired, to learn new things, and be productive. We know that the ability to personalize this experience—when and how you get your news—and to integrate it with other services you use is just as important.

Google Now allows you to easily access specific information in the time and place that it’s most useful to you. As we keep expanding the number of integrations available to feedly users, Google Now seemed like a fitting service for our users, so that you can easily have the stories you need the most come to you, without you having to look for it yourself.

With feedly Now cards, feedly will find the trending stories in the publications you follow and surface them to you throughout the day through Google Now. And you can personalize this experience even more: If you have favorite publications or blogs that you’d love to see in Google Now, you can tell us to follow these stories more closely by marking those sources as must-read in your feedly.

For instance, if you are a PR manager in tech, you can mark the top-tier tech blogs as “must read,” so that breaking stories automagically come to you. Or if you are a physician following the latest in, say, pediatrics or infectious diseases, you can mark your favorite journals as must-read, so that the big stories from these favorite sources surface in your Google Now stream.

Turn it on!

To start seeing feedly Now cards, please make sure you have the latest Google app and feedly app installed on your Android device and are logged into feedly.com. Simply tap the blue Google app icon to see your Now cards.  You’re good to go!

Open Design Contest / Win feedly Pro lifetime

We would love to hear from the feedly community about how we could improve the personalization engine powering this feature and give you more control over which stories should be surfaced in Google Now. Please leave some suggestions by commenting on this blog post, and we’ll pick two of our favorite suggestions, implement them, and offer a lifetime feedly Pro subscription to the lucky people who suggested them!

We’ll use all of your feedback, so that we can iterate quickly on the next version of feedly Now cards, which we plan to push soon.

Enjoy!

What’s new in Feedly 18 for Android?

We just released the new version of feedly for Android to the Google Play Store.

As mentioned in the beta announcement, the main feature of this release is speed reading – a new tap gesture which allows power readers to quickly jump from one inlined article to the next:

Speed Reading

Here is a summary of the other features and bug fixes we are releasing as part of the this request:

1) We redesigned the user experience on the Nexus 7 – focusing on speed and efficiency.

2) We fixed the back button bug reported by many users – where the app would sometimes require multiple back taps to exit.

3) We addressed the rendering bug reported by many Android 4.1 users. This was due to an optimization we put in place for Kitkat but did not play nice with Android 4.1. If you are a feedly + android 4.1 user, you should see fewer rendering issues.

4) We enhanced the login. We now offer a full Google+ login option (the red ‘Login with Google’ button) as well as the old Google OAuth button. The Google+ option comes with a safer Single Sign On implementation and a better sharing dialog. Your choice.

5) Fixed the login expiration bug.

6) Improved the speed of the image processing service. This was one of the key requirements to delivering the speed reading feature.

7) Added a new Mark All As Read card which includes some status about your reading session. More on this later this year.

8) Compatibility with the Samsung Galaxy Gear. More on this next week.

9) Removed the colors in the left selector. This is because we will soon allow users to assign colors to categories, making colors functional.

10) New enhanced black/night theme.

What are the next features we are exploring for feedly mobile 19?
+ Tagging
+ Evernote integration (pro)
+ Customizable font and font size
+ Ability to associate a color to each collections
+ Better search
+ Smooth scrolling for the title only view
+ Offline support for home, must reads and saved items
+ Notification support for must reads

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.devhd.feedly

widget-hero-video

Here is the change log:

  • New version of the android widget
  • 300% faster start time
  • More fluid scrolling experience
  • Better fonts and visual design
  • Search in my feedly (pro)
  • New discover section
  • Enhanced feed search
  • No auto-refresh on restart
  • New Facebook SDK integration
  • Dashclock support
  • Support for Samsung Gear

Special thanks to the Google Android and Google Chrome teams for their coaching.

Version 17 will be submitted to Apple for review on Friday and should be available in the app store shortly after.

If you run into a bug, please leave a comment and we will pass the feedback to the dev team.

Update (Wednesday morning): Some of the optimizations we performed for Android 4.1 and 4.3 seem to cause some issues on Android 2.x and 4.0. The dev team is looking this. We aim to have a fix out by Monday.

Update (Wednesday night): Pushed a 17.1 patch out. Fixed a GPU rendering issue for Android 3.0 and Android 4.0.4 users.

The New Feedly Mobile – iOS and Android

We just released a new version of feedly for iOS and Android. New look, richer personalization and simpler navigation are at the heart of this release.

[vimeo 49048256 w=754]


It available now and continues to be free:
Apple App Store
Google Play Store

Special thanks to all the beta testers who have been working behind the scenes over the last three months to help polish the experience. We love you for all insight and suggestions you provided.

[Update] We are working on a couple of priority 0 issues reported over the last couple of days:

Issue #1: if you use Google 2-factor authentication, then you will need to create an application specific password to be able to login to feedly. Feedly will remember it. We are working on using OAuth2 to avoid this in the next release.

Issue #2: The application crashes on iOS 4.x. The work around is to upgrade to iOS 5.1. If that is not an option, we will have a build out within the next 10 days which addresses this issue.

Preview of the New Feedly for Android

We have a new iteration of the new feedly+android preview. If you are interested in a test drive, please send me an email to android@feedly.com and I will send you the instructions on how to install the preview.

We have been working over the last 9 months on a new version of feedly mobile. We are performing a set of previews before pushing the build to Google Play. Join the party. Have a sneak peek and help us improve feedly before the release!

Gestures. we spent some time simplifying gestures in this new release. here is a quick overview.

  • Swipe down on an article snippet to mark the article as read.
  • Swipe down more to mark the entire card as read.
  • Swipe up for keeping article(s) as unread.
  • Press and hold to save/unsave

[Update. Crunching through the feedback as it comes in. Compiling list of things people like and the things they would like to be fixed in the next iteration of the beta. This is *very* useful. Thanks you!]

The good:

  • I LOVE the new UI. So slick [Julian Finn, Nexus 7 and Galaxy S3]
  • Amazing! Very close to the web experience. [Winson]
  • Very happy about the dark theme. Happy about the “share using” button’s return. [Dom Bonanni /Motorola Droid 2]
  • Awesome. Love the overall changes [Bryan Garvin, Nexus 7]
  • Overall the app is a fantastic improvement: The biggest improvement is speed.  It feels a lot faster.  Not sure if that’s true or not, but it certainly appears to be the case. Swiping is faster and the articles seem to load a lot faster with less lag.  The layout and font choices are an improvement.  It feels more like a modern app.  Love the updated overlay with the colorful bars that come across showing story count. [Brant Tedeschi / HTC Thunderbolt]
  • Love the redesign. The visual aesthetic is very refreshing [Daniel Burgess / HTC EVO 4G]Excellent job on the new interface. Very refined [Brian Pittman, Nexus 7 and Moto Triumph]
  • I like the clean and polish look compared to the previous build [Santa Chhat / Galaxy Nexus]
  • Really loving the improvements overall [John Childs / Nexus 7]
  • Loving the black theme (Night) [Nootish Han/Samsung Galaxy S2]
  • The new feedly+android is a huge improvement over the last one. I just love the new theme and the new font [Varnavas Kotsonias / Xperia Arc S]
  • I absolutely love the new Feedly. It looks a lot sleeker than the current one, much cleaner and just as easy to navigate. [Mohamed Samir/ Galaxy SII]
  • Looks wonderful! [Jean-Baptiste Rouillac, Galaxy SIII]
  • The app looks stunning! Great work on the visual part, in my opinion it’s a lot better than the previous version. Loved it from the first sight  [Marcin Malinowski, HTC Sensation]
  • FANTASTIC [Mike Stevens]
  • Feedly feels smooth as ever [Thomas Wahrlich, Google Nexus S]I love the new build, it is the smoothest one yet [Cong Nguyen]
  • Very quick and responsive, and it looks great on my device [Dylan McCall, Nexus 7]
  • I like the new app, the UI is much improved and it’s faster. It’s very similar to the web app. I like the easy swipe access to the feeds side bar [Rossen]
  • This is a very nice upgrade, visually it is very very beautiful.  I love it.  Works pretty well too.  It makes the most of the screen real estate on my 7” tablet, it is very well executed.  I feel it is a good improvement over the previous version (and compared to the current version available on the iPad). [Eric Morin]
  • Beautiful. Facebook sharing is also fixed where previously it had issues on Galaxy Nexus. Like the new and improved look [Lee Yoke Kuan, Galaxy SIII, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7]
  • The app looks awesome. It’s powerful and beautiful and yet simple. Amazing job! [Seba Porta / Galaxy SII, Kindle Fire]
  • Love the new UI. Feels fresh, clean and modern [Dave Feltham]
  • I love the new interface. It is quick, user friendly and seems to be very reliable. My favorite new features are the color-coded categories for feeds on the left as well as the addition of integration with “Pocket” for saving pages [Kevin Drummond]

The “should be improved”:

  • Vertical scrolling in inlined articles should be smooter [Santa Chhat / Galaxy Nexus] Fixed in 10b5
  • Margin of the popup menu is off. See http://i.imgur.com/ROVzf.png [John Childs / Nexus 7]  Fixed in 10b5
  • black line flickers in and out when scrolling through the list of articles: http://i.imgur.com/8rJRw.png [John Childs / Nexus 7]  Fixed in 10b5
  • Disable the swipe to open store gesture. It conflicts with the swipe to next article gesture [Varnavas Kotsonias / Xperia Arc S] Fixed in 10b5
  • Permanent filters and/or the ability to save a search as a feed. Like, “Android” in “Gizmodo.” Alternatively, a reductive filter. Like, “Everything but Windows 8” on “Engadget.” I realize this is possible on some feeds, but it’s neither intuitive nor standard [Dom Bonanni, Julian Finn]
  • Better integration with Instagram/Flickr  [Winson]
  • Angry that the “open in browser” button is the Safari icon.  [Dom Bonanni, Motorola Droid 2, Steve Edson]  Fixed in 10b5
  • More layout options [Bryan Garvin, Nexus 7]
  • Had to login twice for OAuth to work [Brant Tedeschi / HTC Thunderbolt]  Fixed in 10b5
  • Smarter suggestions based on historical click patterns [Brant Tedeschi / HTC Thunderbolt]
  • When wired to Pocket, the saved for later section should show the content saved in pocket [Daniel Burgess / HTC EVO 4G] // Talking to the Pocket team about it.
  • Bug with the back button when when drilling down into a website [Brian Pittman, Nexus 7 and Moto Triumph]  Fixed in Beta4
  • It would be nice to have a one tap action to open an article in the external browser instead of the current two tap action [Brian Pittman, Nexus 7 and Moto Triumph]  Fixed in 10b5
  • Full screen support [Nootish Han/Samsung Galaxy S2]
  • Continue to improve fonts [Mohamed Samir/ Galaxy SII] Added Soho and Roboto support to 10b5 (including Android 4.0.4)
  • Would like to use both feedly save and pocket save [Steve Edson]
  • As a feature, I would suggest improving the image viewing, to make reading online comics easier [Rui Pires, gt i9000] // Will be
  • thank you for adding in an option to long press to save for later reading but I think a shorter long press would be less awkward, it may just be me but I feel like I’m holding my screen forever [Cong Nguyen]
  • On the Transformer Prime tablet, when scrolling down through the left-hand navigation pane I noticed that the “Edit Content” feature would be activated, even when I did NOT select that [Gary Oppenhuis, Asus Transformer Prime] // Changed the touch sensitivity to take into account the touch slop in 10b5
  • Offline reading [Gary Oppenhuis, Asus Transformer Prime]
  • Edit mode confused me at first, because I had triggered it by long-pressing a topic without expanding its list of individual feeds. I just saw Edit floating at the top with no sign of what I could edit [Dylan McCall, Nexus 7] In Beta 4, the long touch on a category name on the selector will both open the selector and switch to edit mode.
  • That overflow menu doesn’t behave like any other menu, either in Android or (that I can see) in Feedly. When I tap something off of the menu, the thing I have tapped responds to my press and the menu does not close.  [Dylan McCall, Nexus 7]
  • While flipping through the Today section this morning, after maybe five minutes a bar appeared on the bottom saying “No network. Tap here to reload.” The problem is I _did_ have a perfectly good network connection (confirmed by opening an article and watching an image load), and clicking that bar dumped me all the way back to the beginning. [Dylan McCall, Nexus 7] // In 10b5, swiping a card will hide the no network sign
  • Create an option in the settings to “remove clutter” as a default. Navigating to a full post is a pain with most major sites. The ability to get a clean looking article is very nice. But since I always want that, I don’t think I should need to click that “remove clutter” icon each time [Mark Groves, Kindle Fire + JellyBean]
  • The video player could be improved. The “Ted” app it’s a great example of this (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ted.android). It follows the Android guidelines maintaining their style. There’s also a new API coming for YouTube videos to be embedded seamlessly in an app. Here’s the video session: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WFsx-u-q3Y [Seba Porta] Fixed in 10b5
  • Add an option to pull the full article from the site when the feed is truncated  [Seba Porta]
  • Would be nice if you use could get rid of the Android 2.0 style in Configuration, video player, etc. (at least in Android 4.0+). [Seba Porta]
  • Some pictures in articles aren’t centered or/and are rather small (see “National Geographic News” feed) [Seba Porta]
  • The App does not work correctly with lower DPIs set. I attached a screenshot with DPI set to 182 (default is 240). [Jan Bader, Galaxy S2]
  • Need a faster way to open the article in an external browser [Dave Feltham] Fixed in 10b5. From 2 touch to a single touch.
  • When reaching the end of the today section, it would be nice to have a swipe to refresh gesture [Kevin Drummond]
