RSS reader Feedly, which has emerged as the leading alternative to Google Reader, is making its paid version, Feedly Pro, available to everyone on Monday. The general launch comes a few weeks after Feedly offered a limited-time, $99 lifetime subscription that sold out in 8 hours.

As previously announced, Feedly Pro is $5 a month or $45 a year. Here are the initial enhanced features it’s offering:

  • Search (completely missing from the free Feedly)
  • One-click Evernote integration (users of the free version can email stuff to Evernote but don’t get an Evernote button)
  • Pocket integration (also offered through the free Feedly; in Pro, Feedy says, Pocket’s integration is more seamless)
  • Premium customer support

These perks may or may not be worth it to you. Feedly says it will add more features to Pro over time, based on user feedback.

Feedly had 12 million users as of June.

    Sorry, but the ability to search your own feeds shouldn’t be considered a “perk” … it should be inherent. It was the one thing that made me not completely in love with Feedly. Not worth $45/year. I’ll likely just find another reader.

    They know that you can do Pocket (or Readability) integration using IFTTT, don’t they? Yeah, they probably know that.

    1. That’s true, but does rely on IFTTT being up and running. Personally, I prefer sending articles to Pocket (in my case) immediately after perusing them.
