Feedly Cloud Available Now in Press

The new Feedly Cloud service is now a part of Press 1.3.2 and we couldn’t be more excited! Feedly provides a great web interface and is a perfect partner for Press. If you haven’t had a chance to check out what Feedly has to offer, head over to http://feedly.com and see for yourself.

A few notes about Feedly integration in Press:

  • To connect with your Feedly account, sign out through Settings and sign into Feedly.
  • If you do not have an existing Feedly account, sign into Feedly with your Google account and your Google Reader data will be automatically imported.
  • Feedly is automatically migrating new users from Google Reader to their new Feedly Cloud platform. This should be completed by June 21st for all users.

Thanks to Feedly for being a great partner and providing the community with a new platform before the imminent death of Google Reader!

Press 1.3

The past few months have been a whirlwind of chaos and opportunity in the world of RSS. Since Google announced that Reader would be shutting down on July 1st, there has been a scramble to define the future of RSS. A lot has happened, even for the two of us here at TwentyFive Squares. Through a lot of ups and downs, we are genuinely excited about the future of RSS and Press.

With version 1.3, Press is turning over two proverbial new leaves. The first major change is that Press will be supporting two new services, Feed Wrangler and Feedbin. We have been in communication with both David Smith (Feed Wrangler) and Ben Ubois (Feedbin) for a while now and feel that they are each invested in building something that will last. We’re extremely excited to work with them and offer their great services through Press!

The second major change is that the phone interface has been rethought and redesigned. Our goal from the beginning has been to continually improve and refine Press. Sometimes that means a new coat of paint. Sometimes that means you tear off a wing of the house and rebuild it. In version 1.3, we did both! We’ve listened to a lot of feedback and we think this new workflow is both simpler and more efficient.

We’re excited about this update and see it as a springboard for the direction of Press. There is still more to come, but if you will excuse us, we still have a lot of work to do :)

Press + Feedly

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve partnered with Feedly to provide Feedly integration in Press. Feedly just announced a free service for select 3rd-party apps and you can see all the details on their blog. After the Google Reader retirement was announced, adding Feedly support in Press was our most popular request, so we’re really excited about this opportunity. Our plan is to provide an app update in a couple weeks that will allow you to easily add your Feedly account and have the same RSS experience you’ve always enjoyed using Press.

Our thanks to Feedly for providing the community with such a great product. As always, we’ll give more details as the date becomes closer, and let us know if you have any questions. Thanks for all your support during this ride!
