Enable offline reading for all unread items +images in feeds
I catch up on my RSS reading in the metro (spotty at best cell service) and on flights (often no service even available) -- please enable offline reading of unread items, and sync unread/bookmark/etc. on the next connect. The workflow of the MobileRSS app does this very well currently, and allows per-folder caching and selection of whether to cache images or not, on wifi only or any connection. That is a bit overboard, but being able to add an offline cache is the main feature I'll miss moving from my current solution.
PS: Otherwise, great app!
The current feedly apps (iOS and Android) do not offer offline article caching.
This is a feature we are looking into.
If you’re looking for offline support, some feedly partner apps support it (eg.Reeder and Newsify on iOS, or Press on Android).
Those apps are powered by the feedly Cloud API and will seamlessly recreate your reading environment (all your feeds are sync’ed from feedly when you login).

@Arthur Please explain how to download feedly content into GReader for Anroid. Thank you.
13,300 votes and still ignored.
At this rate we'll just switch to another reader that does offer offline support, I guess. That will probably also be a company that listens to its users.

I really want the offline feature in feedly and if it was available in pro i would be entering my card details right now! Please add this feature.

Would love to see this feature revisited, think offline support would be a huge step-up in making this the ubiquitous RSS reader. iOS home screen real-estate is expensive, no reason why we should have >1 RSS reader. We'd like the one & only RSS app to be Feedly.

Arthur, although I appreciate Feedly's openness and willingness to work with other apps, I think a feedly offline solution would be optimal.
It would be great if one could start the app even without internet connectivity.
I am travelling arround and cannot read the feeds synced using wifi when not connected to the internet!

Arthur, Android Press works awfully with feedly cloud. I have to resync (disconnect, clear cache, connect back to feedly) every day.
hey Arthur, i think its pretty clear that we dont want to use another app! we are feedly folks and want feedly to be the best #1 go to app around.
please make this feature a priority for both the free and paid community members.
so will this feature with its over 12K votes get implemented into feedly anytime soon?
Marton Kodok commented
I paid for the Pro membership, and I would like to get this feature. I don't want to pay another service like Press. Do you understand?
is there an offline version for the computer?
I really wish Feedly would add this feature to their native app. What if I don't want to get an alternative app?
Paul Walker commented
Whilst I appreciate that other clients offer this feature, switching is not that simple.
Firstly, I really quite like the Feedly client and would generally expect the best experience with the native app.
Secondly, switching to another app to get this fixed could just as easily leave me with other shortcomings.
Clearly, with almost 12k votes, this is a popular suggestion.

Newsify offers, like other RSS readers, off-line sync of only RSS feeds text, not the whole article .
I wonder if Feedly could
provide Preview on mobile devices, the same as it does on web - indeed, mobiles are where such function is mot needed. Then, developing this point, since Feedly already generates Previews on its servers , can the Preview be fed to a mobile as a compressed code, MiniOpera/Opera Turbo and others-like?
Otherwise I fail to see why Feedly generates those Previews, on web ..?
So that's a no then?

I appreciate the support for phone and tablet apps, but I need an offline reader for Windows that will work with Feedly.
I tried Meneré as a desktop RSS reader and removed it again: the program crashes (Windows 8), there are no options to use, so no tagging, no starring, no ...
The other desktop RSS reader Nextgen is not free. You can't try it and I don't know why I should buy an app. that maybe doesn't work, that maybe has too little options,...
gReader as an Android app. is muc better than the Feedly app. with a lot of options. I's a bit more complicated to use, but the user guid gives enough information & after readng some parts of it, you become an expert to use the app.
Olivier Guéry commented
You should add just reader to the list of apps. It is way better than greader in my opinion (maybe just the beta have sync with feedly for the moment).
John Abbe commented
Byline has great offline support, and syncs with your feedly subscriptions.
What we really need is a universally-used spec for hosting (simplest level is just an OPML file!) and accessing feed subscriptions. I appreciate Feedly's setting something up so quickly given Google's punting on Reader, but we should never be beholden to any single service provide for such an important service.
That's probably the worst response I can imagine. Why don't we just use those apps instead and delete Feedly?
I fly all the time and need an offline reader. Not two apps I have to juggle to get offline support.
Gene Davison commented
Arthur, if we could have a little clarification on your comment, I think we'd all appreciate it. Is this a friendly suggestion as a workaround for the lack of offline support or is this a formal statement that at this time the Feedly team does not have offline support on their roadmap nor any plans to add it to the roadmap?
