As Google Reader shuttered, the information hounds quickly looked for a new RSS feed. While many contenders emerged, only one — Feedly — would prove itself to be better than the rest. Widely adapted in place of Reader, Feedly has brought back their Lifetime Pro account.
Whereas the top-tier-for-life option was once $99, that was for the first 5,000 people who signed up, and those went really quickly. This time around, Feedly once again raises eyebrows by charging $299 for the courtesy of being a Pro for life. That triple the cost, and you’ll get about the same features as you did before.
For your $299, you’ll get to “define custom sharing URLs”, as well as the ability to save directly to Evernote or Pocket. Users will also have the ability to get articles from “smaller sites” 30 minutes quicker, as well as the ability to search full articles from within your feed. Of course, you’ll also get “premium” support, and the joy of knowing you support Feedly.
If you require a slight upgrade from an already good (and free) service, we encourage you to check out Feedly Lifetime Pro. There is a $5/month Pro option as well, but if you’re going to use Feedly for 6 years or more, the Lifetime is a good choice. As they add services, you will get them free of charge, obviously, but we’re just not sure there is something you can add to an RSS feed that makes it worth the price.
