Come and get it: Feedly Pro hits general availability

Your huddled masses yearning to read feeds

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Google Reader refugees have another alternative reader, with Feedly announcing that its Feedly Pro is now available to all.

Not, however, for free. The $US45 a year or $US5 per month might look like stretching the willingness of punters to hand over dollars for a humble RSS reader, but the development work on the Pro version was funded by exactly that.

To create both the technical infrastructure and the customer support it expected the Pro version to need, Feedly solicited 5,000 first-user $US99 lifetime subscriptions, and then cut off sign-ups after they sold out in eight hours. That option won't be revived, since it was a reward to supporters of the Pro project.

The premium version gives users search, along with integration to Evernote and Pocket. Web, iOS and Android versions are available and it supports both RSS and Atom. Both Feedly and Feedly Pro can read feeds over HTTPS connections.

Shortly after Google stuck Reader on its end-of-life list, in March, Feedly received more than half-a-milion new users for its free service.

Feedly Pro is here. ®
