Tap to move quickly from story to story with Feedly's new beta for Android
Once Google got rid of Google Reader, many switched to Feedly. The Android version of the app has, at times, been unresponsive and hard to work with, something that we can attest to. But Feedly has been working on making its Android app better. Members of the Feedly beta community can download a beta version of the next update (Feedly 18) which will allow them to check out the bug fixes and new features.

Bugs fixed include problems found with the app on Android 4.1, issues with the back button, and log-in expiration problems. And a new feature called speed reading by Feedly is available on the beta. This is a new tap gesture that offers faster transitions from one story to another.

For those Android users who have given up on Feedly and have moved on to another app like gReader, perhaps once the new update leaves beta, you could give Feedly another shot. If your Android phone has recently been updated to Android 4.2, you might also want to check out Feedly now to see if your updated OS build makes a difference.

Been using Feedly on 4.4.2 - a very nice app and rarely 'unresponsive'.

i use Feedly on all of my devices and the only bug i've experienced on my devices runing Android (and also Kit Kat) is that random log out issue.
