I get the desire for the F, but it looks like a corporate bar chart and is insanely boring because of it.
They claim “The tabs/strips refer to bookmarking/collecting the things you love”. I’m not seeing that. I think they should have went with some of the other suggestions and introduced some combination of a Magazine rack/post-it note experience. This would better represent the highly customised magazine type experience which attracted me to Feedly in the first place.
All in all an uninspiring, boring choice with a garish colour scheme to boot.
I hope it hasn’t distracted them from continuing to deliver the best RSS Reader service I’ve used. And especially hope it hasn’t slowed down delivery for the iPhone and Safari – I’m starting to get annoyed waiting.
UPDATE: Edwin from Feedly contacted me (see comments). I have to admit I missed the announcement about Safari. So mea culpa on that one. I’m hoping the extended delay for iPhone support is a sign of great things. Perhaps the use of the word “annoyed” was overkill. If so, humble apologies.
