How to use Feedly
After creating and logging into your account, Feedly will automatically add a Feedly Mini Toolkit button on the bottom right of the browsing area. When you click on this, among other things, you’ll be able to add that page’s feed (if it has one) to your Feedly categories. If the page has no RSS feed, it will tell you so. You can also Import a feed from your home screen (right at the bottom of all the Choice and Featured Collections.
On the iOS and Android versions you can add new feeds using the main menu bar on the left. Some websites might also have a Feedly button somewhere, which when pressed will automatically ask you whether you want to open it with Feedly.
Irrespective of what platform you used to add feeds, Feedly will syncronize them for you.
