Feedly opens up API to other developers, offers personalization graph
<a href=" bscription.option/" rel='nofollow'>Feedly</a>, the RSS app that climbed to fame after <a href=" t.two.weeks/" rel='nofollow'>Google Reader</a> shut its doors, is <a href="" rel='nofollow'>opening its API</a> to other developers. The move, which brings Feedly closer to Google Reader in terms of being a platform rather than an RSS reading app, will allow for third-party developers to access its API and use Feedly's servers as a backbone for their own apps. <br />
<br />
Fifty developers have been involved with the design and construction of the API, according to a Feedly blog <a href="" rel='nofollow'>post</a>, with the final product being not only a feed-serving platform, but also provides a "powerful personalization graph" that carries categories, feeds, topics, tags, mixes, and other "higher-level concepts" for content consumption. This personalization will allow for a user to define aspects one one app, with the same settings and details spreading across multiple other apps and platforms. <br />
<br />
Feedly had a meteoric rise since the shutdown of Google Reader. After the initial closure announcement, it added <a href=" s.the.bandwidth/" rel='nofollow'>500,000 users</a> to the service within 48 hours, despite competition from other services <A href="">such as Digg</a>. Aside from a free service, Feedly offers a <a href="" rel='nofollow'>"Pro" option</a> with search, Evernote integration and extra customer support for $5 per month or $45 per year.
