How to Discover and Share the Best Content on the Web – Feedly and Buffer Partner

459 Flares Filament.io Made with Flare More Info'> 459 Flares ×

We’ve been super hard at work here at Buffer over the past few weeks to make one of the most awesome new integrations available today: Buffer and Feedly are teaming up to make discovering and sharing awesome content easier than ever before.

Feedly is one of the smartest and most beautifully designed newsreading apps for iOS, Android and web. Intuitively it syncs across all your devices and lets you find and read the best content from across the web. It came as no surprise that so many of you were using this as your default news app with the need to Buffer from it.

Download Feedly

Today, I couldn’t be more excited to let you know that Buffer is available in Feedly across all platforms. It should make sharing the great content you find more spaced out and at a better time super easy and intuitive.

The update to Feedly with Buffer also brings along a whole lot of other changes. Let’s take a look at the power of Feedly first:

Use Feedly to find and organize the best content from the web

Feedly works virtually anywhere you want to use it. This means, you can grab their web version, iOS app for iPhone, iPad and iPad mini and Android version. With the brand new version, discovering more great content is easier than ever before. You can easily browse the top hits from sites like YouTube, Google News or well established sites like The New York Times, Seth Godin’s blog, The Wall Street Journal:


Any article you read is beautifully embedded with lots of great sharing options that are all natively integrated into Feedly’s design:

One thing is for sure. If you are a newshound like I am , there is absolutely no way you will ever run out of great content to browse through. On the other hand, if you prefer to keep your content very focused on what you’ve chosen, Feedly’s RSS reader options will also be a great fit.

 

The fastest way to browse content on your iPhone or Android phone

Of course Feedly also comes with some super slick iPhone and Android apps to make browsing on your phone a breeze.

The magazine style layout lets you easily browse through previews and see pictures to decide quickly what’s worthy of your attention today:

 

The smartest and most intuitive way to scroll on your iPhone and iPad yet

Now here comes the one thing that has absolutely blown my mind. When I first picked up the test version of the new Feedly, it wasn’t immediately obvious what Feedly’s CEO Edwin Khodabakchian meant when he told me “check out the new way you can scroll”.

And when I did try it, I didn’t realize that one could be so excited about the scrolling mechanism of an app. The new Feedly is designed in a way that you only have to use your thumb with vertical movements. That means, all you have to do is move your thumb up or down, to do nearly everything you want to do in the app. You have to try it yourself, it’s truly awesome:

Of course, it’s slightly difficult to show you the scrolling in a picture. That’s why, if you give it a try yourself, you’ll immediately see what I mean. The difference between this and other ways to use apps was so staggeringly different, it reminded me again how powerful design can be to drive our behaviour. Even if you don’t read news at all on your phone, download the new Feedly, just so you can interact with this beautiful scrolling element.

 

Change your layout and theme to fit your reading needs

Another big problem that comes along when newsreading apps change to a more magazine like layout is that getting through your new articles quickly and efficiently becomes a pain. Feedly offers a great solution for this, giving a list view if you want to go through your articles really quick. You can easily change to the more appealing card view, mosaic view or magazine view, if you like to browse through your latest news more relaxed:

 

Another feature I also greatly enjoy is the option to easily change your theme from white to dark. Especially if you are used to looking at bright white screens all day, this can be a great change to calm down and browse the latest updates on an interface that’s easy going on the eyes:

 

Using Buffer + Feedly together on web, iOS and Android

And lastly, the new Feedly also comes with a gorgeous new Buffer integration built right into it. Any article you are reading you can easily add to your Buffer queue. The Buffer integration is done via a brand new Buffer iOS sheet, which gives you an easy way to add new updates to all of your accounts. At the same time, it should be super easily accessible on the top right from any article.

For the web version, each article carries a Buffer button that works just like our browser extension. Every time you think something is worth sharing, hit the Buffer icon and you are good to go:

The Buffer iOS integration is done via a brand new Buffer iOS sheet for apps, which gives you an easy way to add new updates all of your accounts. At the same time, it should be super easily accessible on the top right from any article. Filling up your Buffer and keeping it full couldn’t be any more convenient:

As you can already choose from 30+ Buffer integrations into different apps on the web, the addition of also being able to Buffer from Feedly should up your social sharing game considerably.

Especially with so many of you having asked us for Buffer integration into Feedly, I couldn’t be any happier to finally offer such a nicely designed one to you.

Being able to Buffer from one of the biggest newsreading apps was a huge step for us here at Buffer. I sincerely hope you can give the new Feedly a go and see what you think, it definitely is something I’ve never seen before, both regarding design and intuitive use. What do you think of the new integration? Where else would you like to Buffer from?

    I don’t see the buffer icon in feedly’s safari extension, even though I have the buffer extension active as well. What am I doing wrong?

    • LeoWid

      Hi Jean-Paul, great to hear from you and yes, so unfortunately this is only available on the Feedly Chrome version, I hope we can bring it to Safari soon! :)

      • http://twitter.com/JeanPaulH Jean-Paul Horn

        Thanks. Hardcore Safari user, so waiting very impatiently ;-)

      • http://twitter.com/suddenlyjamie Jamie Wallace

        Also looking fwd to the Safari integration … though I keep hearing I shoudl switch to Chrome …
        LOVE BufferApp and just discovered (and am enjoying) Feedly. No longer sad about Google Reader and deleting Reeder and Flipboard. Wonderful user experience. SO glad you guys are integrating!

  • BodyVision HealthCoaching

    I downloaded feedly to my laptop and connected it to the google reader and google email, etc. The page looks great at feebly! Silly question: where is the buffer icon on the feedly page? where do I go to send a favorite article to, say, twitter, using buffer if there is no icon? I used to do that from google reader. Thanks!

    • Edwin

      Hello. Are you running feedly on Chrome? The integration between feedly and buffer is being reviewed by firefox. It will take about 3 weeks before it is available on the mozilla store -Edwin

  • http://www.TheSocialMediaHat.com/ Mike Allton

    Fantastic! I’m sharing this news with my followers now.

    • Edwin from Feedly

      Thanks! Let us know if you have suggestions on how to improve the experience -Edwin

  • http://www.ooph.com/ Stefanie

    This is fabulous! Thanks for sharing this morning. Great way to start my day :)

  • http://sageandscribe.com/ Briana Pierce

    Hooray!! That was literally the one point keeping me from using Feedly. I am excited to switch from Google Reader now. :) Thanks!!

  • http://twitter.com/cimbrum Marian C.

    Good job! Hope Feedly for Android will be faster than now.

    • Edwin

      Hi Marian. This is Edwin from feedly. We are working on a new version of feedly for Android (aka version 14). The focus of that new version is removing the random logout bug and memory optimization. Expect to hear more in a few weeks. -Edwin

      • http://twitter.com/cimbrum Marian C.

        Thanks! Waiting for this!

  • http://www.riolan.mx Edna Campos

    Great! You guys are awesome!

  • http://about.me/usmanlatif Usman Latif

    Is this integration recent? I have been using Buffer with Feedly for a long time now. Maybe that’s because of my Chrome extension?

    Whatever, congrats and good luck! My two favorite services have joined hands and it’s awesome.

    • Edwin from feedly

      The integration has been in beta mode for a few weeks. We are going live with it for all the users today – on iOS and Chrome. Hence the announcement. -Edwin

      • http://about.me/usmanlatif Usman Latif

        Sounds cool Edwin! :)

  • http://twitter.com/acalculatedlife A Calculated Life

    I’m looking a Feedly on my MacBook and it looks good. But do I need to be using Chrome to see the the Buffer icon? Can’t see it at present.

  • http://twitter.com/acalculatedlife A Calculated Life

    To clarify, I’m looking a Feedly on my MacBook with Firefox and it looks good. But do I need to
    be using Chrome to see the the Buffer icon? Can’t see it at present.

    • Edwin

      Yes. You need to be using Chrome at the present. The firefox version is being reviewed by the Mozilla team.

  • Olawale Daniel

    Great time is here again…I’m happy for this merger :)

  • cardinallijr

    Nice! Great work! What about a exclusive button to share on Buffer? Like Feedly already has on Chrome/Safari and Pocket/Instapaper integration. You know, who are not using Buffer/awe.sm to share content? Zombies maybe… Even them should use it!!! :D

  • http://aaroncouch.me/ Aaron Couch

    This is awesome! Thanks for the hard work!

  • http://www.mycustardpie.com/ MyCustardPie

    I’ve been wanting this function for a long time. Disappointed to hear I’ll have to wait for it to appear on Firefox. Any idea how long?

  • http://twitter.com/joycelynlim_ Joycelyn Lim

    twas only a matter of time, definitely the highlight of my day! match made in heaven!

  • Cam Gould

    Rad… will soon be upgrading my buffer account :)

  • http://www.djppaine.com dj paine

    Best integration ever!

  • http://www.SocialSkoop.com/ @DanielaBolzmann

    WOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWW guys! I finally had some time to play with the integration and it’s amazing! I think this is my favorite yet! Great job. It’s funny how I have gone from using Buffer as a professional tool in community management and have now transitioned to using it for personal use through Feedly. LOVE!!!

  • http://twitter.com/BranchingOutEU Branching Out Europe

    This is fantastic news! I have to say I use Feedly and Buffer every day in my job. The fact these are now intergrated is perfect. Two of the best apps out there.

  • Nicolette Roux

    happiness!!

  • Ed

    hm… there’s no buffer-icon in my feedly-Reader why is that? osx 10.7.5 / Safari

  • Ed

    Hi, I need help. Feedly is up and running but there’s no Buffer-Icon showing up. There are some Twitter-Followers of mine reporting the same issue. Any advice how 2 fix this?

  • melformosa

    Much better than flipboard but i am having problems with buffer

    • LeoWid

      Oh no, really sorry for the hassles there, what is the issue with your account? Keen to fix it asap! :)

  • http://www.Productivelifeconcepts.com/ Royale Scuderi

    Can’t select Buffer profile on Feedly app. What’s up with that?

    • LeoWid

      Hi Royale, that is a great point and I apologize for the troubles here. We’ll try to get this fixed asap. For now, could you try uninstalling Feedly and reinstalling and see if signing in with Buffer then lets you pick the profile?

      Keen to get things working well for you as soon as possible!

      • http://www.Productivelifeconcepts.com/ Royale Scuderi

        It worked! Thanks.

        Royale

        • LeoWid

          Awesome, so glad it worked! Please give me a shout any time I can help! :)

  • Kohinoor Devroy

    Seems it does seriously serious jobs….keep going LeoWid

    When sharing to Buffer from the Feedly iOS App it uses feedly.com as a share link rather than our bitly custom domain as set in Buffer settings. Can this be changed?

    • Travis

      Will this ever be addressed?!

  • Jeff

    I would to recommend “Must Do Today”. It’s a useful app for productivity and Time Management.

  • Cecily Walker

    Are free users who share via Feedly still limited on the number of links per day that will be shared with Buffer?

    • LeoWid

      Hi Cecily, nope you can share unlimited links per day through Buffer for Free! :)

  • http://www.vimeo.com Paul

    You’ve neglected to add Buffer integration to the Android app (and neglected to mention that omission here), while as usual iOS gets priority even though they’ve become the minority platform.

    Any ETA to when you’ll amend?

    • http://www.CraftBeerTime.com/ Craft Beer Time

      Minority platform? They have the greatest number of paid users by far. They’re very far from the minority platform.

  • http://www.internetmarketingblog.gr/ @bartzokas

    I have two buffer accounts and by mistake I didn’t use the right one. How can I switch accounts?

    • LeoWid

      Hi there! Oh right, so unfortunately there is quite no sign-out option in Feedly right now, the best way is to simply delete Feedly and download it again. Let me know if that works! :)

  • Franco

    Ciao Leo can I switch my buffer account with feedly for IOS? Thanks

  • http://appsicum.com/ Appsicum

    Some goods app here. You can also include Future Scheduler and Location Alerts in this essential iPhone apps list.

  • Immanuel Henne

    I have been using buffer with feedly on iOS but when I changed the buffer account credentials it wouldn’t let me use the buffer integration anymore. I always get the message: “No accounts selected – Select an account to add this update to.”. There is no feature though on the app to select an account nor to log off the buffer account and to re-login again. I have tried to delete feedly many times but also that won’t fix the issue. Any ideas on how to resolve? I like the buffer integration and would love to use feedly!. Thank you.

    • http://caryl.fr/ Caryl

      I have the same issue ! I don’t know why….I tried to delete and reinstall feedly but no account appears and the same message displays….did you find a solution ?

      • Immanuel Henne

        I tried for weeks … didn’t find any solution and I tried many ways.

        • http://caryl.fr/ Caryl

          Thank you very much for your message….I’m feeling less alone now ;-)

    • carokopp

      Hi Immanuel! I’m so sorry for the trouble here. Yes, unfortunately, this is a known issue but there isn’t a fix for it just yet. :( We’re hopeful that there will be an update soon which will incorporate a logout function. Stay tuned, and thanks for hanging in there with us on this! If you’d like, email us at hello@bufferapp.com and just let us know that you’d like to be emailed when this is working again. :)

      • Immanuel Henne

        Thank you very much for your response. Actually I had been trying all sorts of solutions to resolve the issue: incl. uninstalling the entire iPhone and resetting the iPhone, uninstalling, reinstalling the app incl. through iTunes etc, etc. etc. there is just NO way to resolve I found out. So I am very glad that you have responded. Of course pls. do inform me via email when fixed. I appreciate it very very much!.

        • carokopp

          Oh gosh, so sorry to send you through all of those hoops, Immanuel. Thanks for hanging in there with us on this one! :) We have you on the list for an update once we have news here. Let us know if we can help with absolutely anything else!

        • http://caryl.fr/ Caryl

          Thank you another time….I tried exactly the same all solutions…

      • Immanuel Henne

        Still no solution available?

  • http://caryl.fr/ Caryl

    Big issue on iOS ! Impossible to display accounts and profiles accounts on Feedly and Pocket….Since Feedly iOS upgrade we can put the buffer button at the end of the post but nothing work.

    Just in case I tried to :
    -Delete and reinstall the feedly and buffer app (many times)
    -Restore my iPhone 5S

    …Buffer tried to help me for 4 days but always nothing.

    So, everything works great on the desktop…

    Do you have the same problem or maybe I’m alone ?

    • carokopp

        Hello, just for your information, the last upgrade of Buffer don’t fix this issue….

        • Belle

          Hi Caryl, sorry for the confusion here. We’re actually waiting on a Feedly fix to get this working, but hopefully it’s not far off.

          • http://caryl.fr/ Caryl

            Sorry, but one month later without solution to fix this with feedly and pocket, I had to cancel my awesome plan….when you’ll be really ready tell us…

  • http://www.CraftBeerTime.com/ Craft Beer Time

    I use Feedly on my desktop, Mr. Reader on my iPad, and the Buffer app on my iPhone.
