Lookup Word Definition in Feedly, Finally
I really like RSS. I am currently following 160 different feeds. I use Feedly to manage my feeds. I also use the Feedly iOS App. I have tried many other clients but I always come back to the Feedly iOS App. But the fact that it lacks a feature to look up the definition of a word in the content menu has always frustrated me.
The Instapaper App does this nicely:
And so does the Kindle App:
So when I signed up for Feedly’s Mobile+AI Lab, a project to rebuild the iOS client app with community feedback, I took the opportunity make a feature request in the slack channel for this project. The Feedly team liked my idea enough to add it to their Trello Board for the project.
So all I had to do is wait.
But then I realized that I already had this feature because the Feedly iOS client provides access to the share sheet from the context menu:
From the share sheet I could run the Define Word Workflow and I finally have my feature!
