If you’re a fan of RSS readers, odds are you’ve used Feedly. But what if you could get your news an easier way without the need to jump into the app? That’s where Corgi for Feedly comes in. It brings your RSS feeds straight to your Android device’s lock screen, allowing you to quickly swipe through each article without the need to unlock your device.
Once installed, you can either swipe up to read more about the current article presented to you, or you can swipe left to view other articles of interest. If you’d like to unlock your device, swipe right, and you can enter in your passcode or pattern from there. If you aren’t too fond of reading the entire article on your lock screen, you can also jump right into your browser directly from the post you’re currently reading. Additionally, Corgi for Feedly makes it easy to share to other services, like Pocket, Evernote, Facebook, Twitter and many more. And if you haven’t noticed by the screenshots above, the app is designed very well, featuring Google’s Material Design guidelines. Here are all of the features Corgi for Feedly currently offers:
- All news subscriptions are synced with Feedly – if you are already a Feedly user, all of your existing subscriptions will be automatically available on your lock screen.
- Choose your own news resources – .Read the stories that you wan’t, by subscribing to the resources that matter to you. We offer International Search Support.
- Material Design ready – the lock screen has been created following Google’s Material Design language
- Read Later – In a rush and don’t have time to read the article? Save it and read it later. Works with Pocket and Evernote.
- Share with Friends – If you like a story, you can easily share it with your friends via Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and many others.
The developers also note that in a future update, you’ll be able to pick and choose which feeds are presented on your lock screen. So if you’re like me, and have way too many feeds to keep track of, the new update will help out with that potential problem.
