Android: RSS readers work best when they bring the information to you, rather than forcing you to hunt it down. To that end, Corgi for Feedly makes life easy by putting your news on your lock screen.

Feedly -- our favourite RSS reader since Google Reader's passing -- had added a new Slider view.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
Popular services like Twitter, Dropbox, YouTube and Wikipedia generally have their own apps on various mobile and desktop platforms -- but sometimes third-party developers swoop in and make better alternatives. Here are some prime examples of where the unofficial software works better than the "authorised version".
Hey Lifehacker, I like reading my news using Feedly (not that Google Reader is RIP). For Australian headlines I have tried a number of news sites but find that they repeat articles and flood too many at me. The result is that I don't read the articles and I eventually unsubscribe. If I was only getting twenty or so headlines a day I would stay subscribed and know more than nothing about current affairs. Do you have any suggestions for me?
iOS: Feedly is a fantastic news reader app for iPhones and iPads, and our favourite replacement for the still-missed Google Reader. A new update, v18.0.5, makes it better than ever before, with a new "speed reading" feature for quick navigation, a night theme, and a new design for iPads.
Feedly is one of our favourite RSS readers, but it was limited to a browser extension until now. Today, Feedly is launching Feedly Cloud, the completely standalone web version of Feedly.
Good news: RSS-tracking service Feedly has begun migrating users onto its own servers -- a necessary move since we're less from a fortnight away from Google Reader switching off entirely. Bad news: when you migrate, you'll find your unread articles count reset, and the service may misplace your saved articles as well.
Feedly has been very popular with Lifehacker readers as a replacement for Google Reader, which has less than a month to live now. To get around that problem, Feedly is developing its own API for when Google kills Reader off for good. If you're a fan of alternate readers such as Reeder, Press or gReader, you'll now also be able to access the Feedly API.
Chrome: Feedly is one of the best alternatives to Google Reader, but it doesn't really have the same look and feel as Google Reader. Feedly Reader is a Chrome extension that makes Feedly look just a bit more like Google's version.
iOS/Android: Feedly, our favourite Google Reader alternative, just updated its browser extensions, and now its mobile apps are getting some love too. A new UI makes swiping and sliding to stories simpler, and a fresh news discovery engine floats popular stories from around the web to the top so you see them.
