Feedly Walks Fine Line Between Free and Paid RSS Services

Feedly

Feedly on Monday launched its paid RSS service, following up on a promise made three weeks ago when it announced a subscription option.

Previously, Feedly had offered $99.99 lifetime subscriptions to the first 5,000 customers who plunked down a credit card. Later that same day, the Palo Alto, Calif. company said it had sold out of the lifetime accounts within eight hours, raising nearly $500,000 from the offer.

Today, Feedly began taking orders for the Pro version of its news reader service: Customers pay $5 per month or $45 annually.

Feedly Pro includes all the features found in the free version, and adds article search, one-click integration with Evernote and Pocket — the latter was formerly known as Read It Later — and priority support.
