Feedly Mobile revamp caters to Reader escapees with new search, mustreads

The phaseout of Google Reader is quickly becoming a boon for developers still carrying the torch for newsreader apps — just ask Feedly, which now says it took on 3 million new users in the two weeks since Google’s decision. Rather than simply wait for more customers to roll in on their own, though, the company is taking matters into its own hands with a major refresh of Feedly Mobile for Android and iOS. The update brings a reworked search engine that’s both extra-quick and makes topic suggestions based on the collective subscriptions of the Feedly user base, getting better as more readers join the ranks. Other updates also serve those who want to keep things moving quickly. A new Must Reads section prioritizes feeds, a title-only view maximizes screen space and an updated sharing panel both allows a customizable shortcut as well as (slightly ironic) sharing to Google+. Once you’ve gotten over the sting of another Google spring cleaning, Feedly’s potential solutions await at the source links.
