Feedly, a popular news reader application that also has a fantastic desktop client, received an update this week. Inside, the developers have added speed reading, a new tap gesture which allows power readers to quickly jump from one inlined article to the next. In addition, version 18 also brings a new Nexus 7 design, Google+ login and sharing dialog, and a “mark all as read” card with reading stats.
Probably the biggest piece of the update (insert sarcasm) is that Feedly has been updated with compatibility for the Galaxy Gear. While the idea of having yet another use for Gear is fantastic, you won’t see me sitting in the local coffee shop reading news stories on my Gear anytime soon. Maybe it has something to do with the screen being only 1.63″.

- New nexus 7 design
