Feedly launches $5 per month Pro membership

The company says it will bring a range of features to Feedly Pro, which will initially include:

Article search: Search within your feedly feeds.

https: Add a layer of security to your feedly browsing.

Evernote: One-click save to any of your Evernote notebooks.

Premium Support: Get bumped to the front of the support line.

Pro doesn’t mean an end to the free version of Feedly, as the company explains in the related FAQ:

Are you continuing to invest in the free version of feedly?

Definitely! We will continue to iterate and add new features to the free feedly. If anything, feedly pro makes us more sustainable and enables us to innovate faster.

It’s a better model than advertising for a relatively small outfit like Feedly. It guarantees, to a greater extent than selling ads, that they’ll be around longer and will be user-centric given that they’ll be using their money to build out the product.
