On Sunday Feedly took to their official blog to announce that Feedly for Android version 18 has now arrived, bringing quite a few new features with it. Aside from a number of bug fixes, some of the changes include a newly redesigned user interface experience for the Nexus 7, a Google+ login option, a redesigned ‘Mark All As Read’ card and much more.

For those that like to speed read through their news feeds in order to get to the “good stuff” quickly, there’s also a new speed reading option that allows you to tap the edge of the screen to jump to the very next article. A demonstration of the new feature can be seen in the image directly below.

    I still don’t get why they pulled off the volume-key-as-jump-to-next feature in open articles. Much faster than that, less intrusive.
