Feedly Gets 500,000 More Users Following News About Google Reader Shutdown

Feedly is an RSS application for smartphones, tablets, and Google Chrome.  Feedly added 500,000 new users in the 2 days after Google announced that they would be shutting down Google Reader.

“We have been working on a project called Normandy, which is a Feedly clone of the Google Reader API – running on Google App Engine,” stated Feedly in their blog. “When Google Reader shuts down, Feedly will seamlessly transition to the Normandy back end. So if you are a Google Reader user and using Feedly, you are covered: the transition will be seamless.” 

Feedly’s RSS reader service syncs between the mobile devices and browsers.  It works on Android, iOS, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.
