Notice: Feedly Coming~

This may be the most anticipated news.

Feedly is the next sync service provider for RssBook after Google Reader retirement. Feedly is well-known as the best replacement candidate for Google Reader API service. Their service is reliable and powerful, even comparable to Google Reader API. They opened API service to public about a month ago. And today we has finally complete integration works with Feedly service and summitted new version(1.6.0) to Apple App Store. Just wait about a week~

Announce: Our New App ‘FastFeed’

I’d like to introduce our second major product, ‘FastFeed’.

capture0We always try hard to develop top quality app. Finally, here comes the next. This app started from very simple idea. How about applying multi-tab of web browser to mobile app? Does it sound plausible?

As the project progresses, we get more confidence. And the final outcome is far better than any initial expectations. It brings the power of multi-tap into mobile app with simple and intuitive UI.

FastFeed is generalized feed app. It can be applicable to any feed service. But, we think, Tumblr is ideally suited. Accordingly, ‘FastFeed for Tumblr’ is our first choice of multi-tab based feed app series.

If you have a Tumblr account or just like to taste our new dish, try it here.

PS: About the next release schedule of RssBook.
