My name is Vassilena and I’ve recently joined the Innologica team as Communications Specialist. I’m a passionate reader, an amateur photographer and interested in all things related to technology, marketing and communications. Nice meeting you! Today I’ll have the pleasure to present to you our newest feature – Bundles.

Whenever you start digging into a new topic of interest or you just stray away from your regular news sources, you probably reach the same problem we all do – too many sources and too little time to scan through all of them. In order to help in the battle against information overflow, we present to you our new feature – Bundles. The functionality has gone through more than 3 months of beta testing and with the help of your feedback we have (hopefully) improved on the core idea.
With bundles you can show your favorite sources for everyone to discover. You can share the most helpful blogs on the Internet or the best sources for photography/cooking/design/insert-hobby-here. Creating a bundle is easy as 1-2-3. You need to go to your Preferences > Bundles tab. Here you can create a bundle, give it a name and customize it with a picture of your choice. Then you can choose all the relevant feeds you want to include in the bundle. To choose sources, browse through your feed folders.

Finally, you can share the bundle with friends or leave it for others to find in Inoreader’s bundles section. Bundles will also be visible in our Discovery section and relevant bundles will be recommended to users in feed search.
If you want a quick guide for a new topic you’re exploring, just go through the bundles directory in our Discovery section – chances are you’ll soon find a helpful list of feeds there. Just hit the Add subscription Plus sign next to your search icon to start exploring popular topics and bundles:
|The Discovery section|
With one click of the Subscribe button you’ll add all the bundle’s feeds to a folder in your Subscriptions list. You’ll also see relevant bundles when going through topics in Discovery mode.
|Discovering relevant bundles|
Subscribing to bundles lets you follow tried and true information sources – a helpful way of getting acquainted with an unfamiliar topic or a fun way to discover interesting sites. If you want to see even more bundles, go through the Bundles categories, where you’ll find a list of top bundles by subscriber count, our staff picks, recommendations based on your subscriptions and much more:

We sure hope you’ll like Bundles – as always, if there is any way we can make the functionality better, let us know in the comments.
