    • Make it work

      I can't...

      1. Import feeds from Google Reader.
      2. Add RSS feeds from a URL
      3. Add feeds using the search functionality.

      So, basically, I can't read feeds at all. FAIL.

              • Add a gallery view (a la Feedly's magazine and card views) for feeds

                A gallery view let's people quickly scan image-focused feeds (like the attached searches I've set up for vintage posters). IMHO, this is Feedly's only distinguishing feature, and one I'd love to see other RSS readers adopt.

                The attached screenshots gives you an idea of what I'm talking about.

                • Marking an article unread does not keep it unread

                  Clicking on a read article and marking it "unread" via the "m" shortcut doesn't actually make the article unread. When you switch to the "Unread only" view, the newly marked unread articles do not appear.

                        We have pushed another update to solve the update speed issue. If issue still persists for you, please contact support and provide us specific feeds so we can probably diagnose the problem.

                        Thanks,

                      • The right-side column

                        Thank you for giving us Aol Reader.I like it very much.
                        But I don't like the right-side column very well.Maybe you must need it as product ad. I think that made desktop doesn't look smart, and can't use Card View in 3 lines on a 13-inch laptop computer of mine.
                        You could give us a button or an option to select it. Thank you :)

                        • Option to show unread feeds only in the feed list view

                          I have subscriptions to several dozen feeds and lot of them update very irregularly. This currently results in a long list of feeds with zero new items. Google Reader let me show only those feeds with updated items, which results in a much less cluttered list.

                                  • Change the email hot link for sharing

                                    Instead of clicking on "share" with email and it opening up your desktop mail client (Outlook is the default), is there a way we can simply tie our alternative web-based emails to it instead? I dislike using Outlook, especially on Win8.

                                      The feed lags, and I think it isn't aware of time zones.

                                      • [BUG?] In folders, all feeds are written in bold font if one feed has unread entrie(s)

                                        When a feeds contains unread post(s), it's title is written in bold font in the left pane. The problem occurs when you have a feed that contains unread entries : all the feeds of the folder are written in bold, even the ones that are fully read.
