What API functions does Feedly
Feedly is preparing for Google Reader's exit
In March, Google announced that it would discontinue its RSS feed reader. After the announcement, users started looking for alternatives. As it turned out, most of the "Reader refugees" migrated to Feedly. These have not only coped well with the rush of new users in terms of server capacities, but also increasingly involve users in the development of new features.
After Google's announcement, Feedly started with an expansion of server capacities. Before that, Feedly was working on a clone of the Google Reader API called "Normandy". According to Feedly, the number of users rose by around four percent per week through September. Since Google announced the discontinuation of the reader, the number of users has increased by 70 percent.
Speed, search, plugin independence
On Monday, Feedly also announced that it would be faster and also support Windows 8 without a browser extension in the future. User feedback is collected on its own website, from which the most popular features are then extracted and implemented. The company's roadmap now looks like this: Speed is the top priority. The tool should get a significant performance boost. Furthermore, the search within Feedly is planned and pure web access without browser plugins.
Four weeks left
The existing iOS, Kindle and Android apps will then be joined by an application for Windows Phone and Windows 8. Sharing content with others as well as some minor bug fixes are also on the agenda. However, there is no time frame for the roadmap yet. Since the Google Reader will officially and finally be discontinued on July 1st, it remains to be seen how quickly the service can adapt to new growth.
Possible payment models
There is also news about the "Normandy" API. Feedly announced that it has been working with other RSS feed reader providers for an improved API for some time, including Reeder, Press, Nextgen Reader, Newsify and gReader. In future, all of these applications will provide access to Feedly content. The API is hosted in Google's App Engine, so the service is not completely Google-free. According to Cnet, the founders do not rule out payment models for future versions either. (red, derStandard.at, 4.6.2013)
