Comments from some of those who selected Feedly as one of their top tools

“is my feed reader to keep track of blogs and news sites via RSS” Harold Jarche, 2015

“all blogs in one place” Natalie Raeber, 2015

“This is my RSS reader. I spend a lot of time here – for each item that appears in OLDaily I read something like a hundred posts. I’m in the middle of a large scale reorganization of my feed sources. There’s so much out there, I think people don’t realize this.” Stephen Downes, 2014
