Feedly has finally launched its web-based Feedly Cloud service today, migrating thousands of users from Google Reader, which is closing in 10 days, to its own backend infrastructure. The company says it now reaches 12 million people across all platforms.

At the same time, it has announced full integration of its API with third-party apps, one of which is the excellent Press for Android. Press was updated to version 1.3.2, bringing support for Feedly — which requires a Google Reader account for now — in addition to the previously-added Feed Wrangler and Feedbin.

Feedly Cloud is a web- and app-based solution, with apps for iOS and Android. The company announced that it would be supporting other platforms like Windows Phone 8 with specific partners, one of which is Nextgen Reader, which should also receive an accompanying update in the coming days. BlackBerry 10 users will also gain Feedly API support from app gNewsReader.

Feedly has steadily grown into the most viable Google Reader replacement, and should accommodate casual news readers in addition to virulent supporters of the traditional RSS standard.

    Any suggestions for which Read alternative (or associated Android app) is best for handling my podcast feeds – something that to handle downloading and playing of podcasts that are part of my RSS feed collection?

      It doesn’t appear that that will import my Google Reader podcast feeds, so I would have to set it up manually, but it does look good otherwise so I think I’ll give it a try.

    What about a flash player to replace Adobe Flash?

    Feedly has been great on my desktop. Just tried the Android app again last night and it’s getting better but still not perfect. Hopefully gReader Pro will be able to connect to the Feedly ‘Cloud’.
