feedly. Read more, know more.
The feedly app gathers the content of your favorite websites, blogs, Youtube channels and RSS feeds in one place.
It is the world's #1 reader with more than 15 million users.
The feedly Mac app syncs seamlessly with the feedly iPhone app and the feedly iPad app so that you can read your favorite sites anytime, anywhere.
The feedly Mac app has a few super powers that the feedly web interface does not include.
1) You get to easily login with a Google or Twitter account which is different from the one you use in our Safari browser.
2) You get a nice dock icon with an unread count badge.
3) The feedly Mac app is configured to handle feed:// URLs so that you can easily add new feeds to your feedly.
4) You have the possibility to open articles in a new tab inside the app without having to switch to your web browser.
We know that a lot of you use feedly on a Mac. We are excited to embark on the journey of making the feedly Mac app the most efficient way to organize, read and share the content of your favorite sites.
If you have suggestions on how to improve the experience, please join the open feedly community.

Great Reader - Feedly is a great reader I switched from another popular reader once they lost google reader support and I have not been disappointed. It’s great to see this avaiable as a mac app, i didn’t care for using the website, not sure why thought. Most times I just use thier ipad app the only problem with that is that there are some sites that site post videos in flash so I can’t view them on the ipad. This app fixes that. A must have is you use RSS feeds.
Unstable and missing key features - First and foremost, this app is incredibly unstable. It crashes everytime I use it for more than a minimal amount of time. I don’t mind that it’s a native app window to the web version, but it’s missing key features! If you open a page in a tab to read, you have no way of retrieving the link to the page you’re reading, and you’ve lost all the sharing features that you get through the Feedly homepage. You also have no way to selectively choose to open links in a browser or open links on a viewed page in a new tab. There’s no browser navigation when reading articles either. I was hoping this app would be like the iPhone and iPad apps, but it’s definitely not ready for prime time.

Pretty much just a web app view - This is pretty much just a web app view, in a native window. one advantage is the unread count in your browser. Other than that, it doesn’t do much for you that you don’t get in Safari. I don’t see keyboard navigation, integration with OS X, or anything really all that special. Between this and the web app, I’d just use the web app. At least there, you can access your browser bookmarks and such.
It’s plainly a web browser. - What’s the fing diff? Plus, customize fonts don’t work at all.
Installed and immediately uninstalled - I was hoping this app gave a different and better experience than Feedly on the web, which I like better than any other RSS reader I've found, but which lacks a lot in the usabiity department IMO. This app is actually just the web site in its own window. Unacceptible to me. I'd love to see a true Feedly app, even if it's not free, but this ain't it. +1 star for not erasing my hard drive!
Need copy link and open in browser functions - The user needs to have the ability to copy an article link (either from the share icons or by control-click) and to view an article/tab in default Web browser.
Missing basic function - Maybe I just can’t find it yet, but the fundamental point of a RSS reader is the ability to point an arbitrary RSS feed XML URL at it and have it use that. The tool didn’t understand such a URL. When the cloud emphasis is so great that it cannot open a simple RSS feed by URL, the product has failed.
