How to add feeds in FLUD

The best Fluders add new feeds often, maybe even daily.

Tap the handy wrench at the top right of the screen. Hit Find Feeds at the bottom left.

Search
Do you have a favorite website, blog or news source? Search the name of it, or the URL, if you know it. A few options might come up. Usually, the first one is the correct RSS feed. To add the feed, tap the feed and a red checkmark will show up on the right side. If you change your mind, you’ll have to click over to My Feeds and hit the red minus to delete that feed. Hit Back. Search for another feed if you’d like.

Weekly Best
Every week, FLUD selects six sources to recommend to our Fluders. Sometimes these are suggested by users, but often we select blogs or sites that we’ve found to be the very best the web has to offer. Sometimes there’s a theme. You might just go ahead and follow all of our suggestions, and when the week is over, delete the ones you didn’t find enjoyable. To add one of our Weekly Best, just tap the name of the feed, and you’ll see a red checkmark show up when it’s been added. Tap the feed a second time to remove it.

Categories
We’ve aggregated some of the best sources for you in our Categories. Many of these feeds were once included in the Weekly Best. Tap a Category such as Sports or Creative to find out what’s inside. Then, tap the name of a feed to add it to My Feeds. Tap it again to remove it from My Feeds. You can click over to My Feeds to make sure it’s there. Or, hit Back in the top left to move to a different Category.

When you’re all done searching, picking from the Weekly Best and perusing our Categories, hit Back.

Now you are ready to start Fluding!

    Hi there -
    Adding feeds is simple, but you're right - the design has changed a bit.

    After you log-in, instead of a wrench in the top right, you will see a memo pad with a + sign. Tap that. From there, you can add feeds a few ways.

    Search
    Search by name or URL for your favorite website, blog, or news source. A few options might come up. Usually, the first one is the correct RSS feed. To add the feed, tap the red Add button. Hit Back. Search for another feed if you’d like.

    Category
    Tap a Category that interests you to check out what's inside. Once you find a feed (or two or three) that you like, tap the red Add button. Hit Back to browse feeds in other categories.

    Social Sources
    Here is where you add your Twitter and Facebook feeds. Why would you do this? So you can get all your news (yes, even your friend's status updates) in one place!

    Google Reader
    If you have a Google Reader account, you can import your sources directly to Flud. Simply log-in with your Google Reader credentials and hit the red Add button next to the feeds you want.

    Now that you've added all these feeds, you may discover you want to organize them and edit categories, or find that you just don't like what you've added. That's OK because feeds are easy to manage. You can delete, organize, and edit from one place. To start managing your feeds, tap the memo+ button in the upper right corner and choose Manage My Sources from the pop-up tool bar.

    Delete Feeds
    To delete feeds, tap the memo+ icon in the upper right corner and tap Manage My Sources on the pop-up toolbar. Find the feed you want to remove and tap the horizontal red button to the left of the title. The button will rotate and a Delete button will pop up to the right of the title. Tap Delete. Done!

    Organize
    To organize feeds, tap the memo+ icon in the upper right corner and tap Manage My Sources on the pop-up toolbar. This next step is a little tricky because you have to have your finger in the right spot for the device to respond -- Drag and drop the feeds by holding down on the far left of the feed next to the triple grey bar icon. The displayed feeds will sync with the order you place them in in this window, the first displayed being the first on the list.

    Edit Categories
    To edit your feed's category, tap the memo+ icon in the upper right corner and tap Manage My Sources on the pop-up toolbar. Next to the source you want to edit, tap the red arrow. Then choose a category by tapping the category name. A red check mark will appear next to the category name indicating the feed has been added. Tap Back to edit other feeds.

    Once you have everything the way you like it, tap Close and you're ready to start Fluding!

    Let us know if you need help or have any other questions. Sorry this hasn't been updated and thank you for bringing this to our attention!

    Enjoy :)

    Hi Danilo,
    So sorry about that. We're working on a fix and should have an update out later this week -- just waiting on approval from Apple! Until that rolls out, please remove your Twitter feed. This should stop the app from crashing.
    We'll let you know when that update is available.
    Thanks!
