Comments from some of those who selected Feedly as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2019

“the content curation choice. We spend a large part of the day online browsing the gigantic library called ‘internet’. But all articles and / or blog posts screen and check whether our favorite bloggers have written a new post, we leave that time-consuming task to Feedly. After all, Feedly, gives us a nice overview of content that we will probably find interesting. And since we switched to a paying account and made the integration with Slack, this process has become even easier.” Matt Vermeulen, Belgium https://www.winstonwolfe.be/tools-for-learning-2019-onze-selectie/”
