Google’s decision to shut its Reader services has opened up a lot of opportunities to others to fill the void that perhaps is much larger than many might have thought. While Digg has gone on record stating it will have its version of Google Reader up and running before June 1, feedly has also joined the fray to become a Google Reader alternative. The company is already claiming half a million of the Google Reader users already having switched their alliance in the last few days, and at this rate, the total user base with feedly will be well past the million user mark soon. The rapid rise in popularity has prompted feedly’s developers to make sure the service is available to its users without a hitch and have funneled most of their resources towards this goal.
feedly is currently available on both the iOS and Android platforms and the developers are encouraging users to come forward with their feedback to help streamline and improve the service.
