Well, that didn't take long. Feedly just announced its new Google-free back end this morning, and two of the top RSS apps in Google Play have been updated to support it. We might make it through the demise of Google Reader after all.

Press (screen above) has been bumped to version 1.3.2, and made a few changes in addition to adding Feedly Cloud support. Here's everything:

  • Added Feedly Cloud support
  • Fixed Feedbin read articles syncing issue
  • Fixed Feed Wrangler timestamp issue (manually sign back in to reset)
  • Fixed several crashes

As for gReader, it's now on version 3.3.0. All this update brought is Feedly support and a few bug fixes. This is one of the most popular Reader apps, so it's nice to see it keeping up.

The future is now. Go and get the updates so you can be ready for the Feedly change over.

    Very good indeed.

    Press looks pretty good.

    But do you have to DO anything? I have both Feedly and gReader (I use greader)...I am not seeing anywhere on gReader to sync with Feedly or anything... This whole thing has me confused!

      logout then login again. it will give you an option to login with the new feedly cloud. that's how i did it, and now everything is synced up.

    friends. I hope that many people also have hobby the same as me.

    I'm interested in Press but at the same time I'm content with the official Feedly app. I'm in the silent minority on that one I know. I happen to like a nice animation. I'm not an RSS power user by any stretch so I don't need my app filling every pixel with as much info as possible. I'm all for aestheticism. I guess I need to visit more sites to justify buying Press. I have less than feeds at the moment so I can't justify taking RSS too seriously.

      In my opinion Press is overrated. Yes, it has a nice UI, but gReader has many more feature.
      And the gReader app is about to launch a new app, so I would suggest you to wait for his new app and maybe tray gReader free.

    Here's my problem, I have over 100 feeds, and I need an overview like greader has. No offense, but feedly is completely non functional for me. I need to be able to see article titles grouped under the feed they belong to. I need to be able to skim and feedly's interface is horrendous for someone like me. Is there a solution? Someone I know has done the switch on their greader app and he says it's horrid.
