Feedly launched a new Pro service earlier today. Unfortunately, the “limited edition” program was quickly sold out. As a result, it is no longer open to new users, at least for now.
According to the Feedly website, the Pro version gives users the following additional tools:
- Article search: Search within your Feedly feeds.
- https: Add a layer of security to your Feedly browsing.
- Evernote: One-click save to any of your Evernote notebooks.
- Premium Support: Get bumped to the front of the support line.
Feedly Pro is $5 per month. The funds collected will help “finance the hardware needed to make Feedly Pro generally available and help support the next batch of features.” Feedly plans on adding new Pro features on a regular basis. In addition, the next batch of features are to be decided on by Feedly Pro users themselves, as they will get to vote on what features they would like Feedly to develop next.
Since Google Reader went offline in July, Feedly has fast become one of the most popular RSS aggregator services on the Web and iOS.
We’ll continue to follow this story and hope to get our hands on a Feedly Pro account very soon.
The free Feedly app is available in the App Store.
