Everyone's favorite reader app, Feedly, seems to be having some problems on Android right now. For some users, version 37.3.0 (which was released back in June) has started crashing every time it's opened. I can confirm the issue on my Pixel XL, and it looks a little something like this... Read More
Developers can't really catch a break. If they create a service that requires its own login account and password, users will clamor for an option to sign in using Google, Facebook, Twitter, or any other number of oAuth logins. And if they create a service and decide not to bother with their own accounts but rely on existing oAuth options, then users will raise the demand for a standalone login as was the case with Feedly.
Feedly has finally fulfilled that last request and added a Feedly account option for logging in. Users can either go with the Feedly option when creating a new account or add it to their existing Feedly settings. Read More
There's a new version of Feedly out there, but it looks like a staged rollout (currently a beta channel release). Normally that wouldn't be a huge deal, because it's just a feed reader. However, there's some cool stuff in the v27 update. This one adds Google Now integration, and we've got the APK below.
Attention: the following roundup contains absolutely no mention of the new release of Google Reader... because that happened in April. But it does have some great picks for new apps from March, including our top seven and a handful of honorable mentions. News readers, social tools, and root-only apps are covered, plus some diagnostic tools for tech heads. And if customization is your thing, check out the honorable mentions section for cool icons and live wallpapers.

Do you use Taptu to read news and entertainment stories? Statistically speaking, the answer is no - we haven't even written a single story on the aggregator in over four years. Taptu is, or more accurately was, a sort of curated platform that pulled news and other stories from both a user's own social networks and a series of pre-made topical feeds. According to messages being sent to users of the app, the entire service will shut down tomorrow, March 31st.
The Play Store and iOS App Store pages for Taptu's mobile apps are now empty, though you may be able to access the Play Store's if you've installed Taptu previously. Read More
