And we thought only Android blogs were to blame for the abundance of Android 4.4 hypebeasting, but no, Feedly has jumped into the arena. In a blog post tonight, Feedly has announced the newest update to their popular feed reader application, grabbing our attention thanks to a note that says “support for Android Kitkat.” 

Who knows what they mean by “support” since Google hasn’t released anything that we are aware of for developers to use to prepare for Android 4.4 outside of a default SMS API. But hey, we like the enthusiasm!

The update also brings a new widget, makes the app 300% faster, and adds more fluid scrolling, better fonts, search for Feedly pro, a new discover section, support for Galaxy Gear, and more. It’s actually quite the update, even if the “support for Android Kitkat” headline is stealing the show.

Go get it!

  • New version of the android widget
  • 300% faster start time
  • More fluid scrolling experience
  • Better fonts and visual design
  • Search in my feedly (pro)
  • New discover section
  • Enhanced feed search
  • No auto-refresh on restart
  • New Facebook SDK integration
  • Support for Samsung Gear
  • Support for Android Kitkat
