Feedly is one of the best ways to enjoy your RSS subscriptions
Since Google announced the shutting of Google Reader service for July 1st 2013, Feedly has developed its own RSS subscription. Now you can directly add your sources from Feedly, which works autonomously. That's the final step it was lacking which has made it a comprehensive reading tool, and the favorite of most of disenchanted hard-GReader users. In addition, Feedly's scenery has been enhanced regarding smoothness, accessibility and customization.
First off, you can log in with any of your Gmail accounts in order to sync your RSS list. If you haven't added any RSS to your account yet, you can do it also from the app or choose the presets categories that Feedly suggests you. It's true that there are heaps of RSS reader for Android, each one with their specific features. Feedly added value lies on simplicity, cuteness, multi-platform and a self-made RSS subscription system.
Simplicity due to reading is as easy as swiping between RSS entries, tap on categories, select the one you prefer and start again. You can open/close, add to read it later, remove a source, share, copy article URL, change format... among other features.
Cute because it's set on a sober and good-looking layout with cool screen transitions. What's more, it is fast on loading images and in switching from one article to the next. You can go to the original article without leaving the app (there's a browser integrated).
Multi-platform because there are iOS, Android, Chrome and Mozilla versions which made keeping up-to-date even easier since all these versions are synced. Thus, anything you read on your mobile device will appear as "already read" when you check Feedly on your browser later.
Feedly is an example of how a cute app, with basic features can become a great one if the developer focus on make it usable. That's what Feedly Team did. Must-have.
Instead of having to hunt down for news, feedly aggregates the contents of your favorite sites and delivers them as a fast mobile-optimized experience.
You tailor feedly to your tastes by creating a collection of the sites you love to read - blogs, magazines, journals, and more.
Feedly is an RSS news reader re-imagined for android phones and tablets. It makes browsing faster and more fun: the content of your rss feeds, news sites and blogs are transformed into pocket-sized cards which load very fast and are easy to browse.
The feedly UI is custom tailored for a 4" phone, a 7" tablet and a 10" tablet. If you run feedly on a tablet, you will get an experience which is very close to a personalized magazine: a really fun way to track and read your favorite blogs.
When you run feedly on a phone and on a tablet, the configuration will automatically syncs between both devices.
Feedly makes sharing content on twitter, facebook and google+ very simple, either directly or using Buffer. Feedly also integrates with Pocket, Instapaper and Evernote.

Brilliant replacement for Reader and /ig on my Nexus 5 and iPad Mini
The main thing you want from a rss / news reading app is to track what you'v read, sadly Feedly no longer does that. Even with "Auto Mark As Read" ticked, scrolling down through articles leaves them as unread meaning you have to try and find where you were up to next time you open the app.
This app does a terrible job of syncing up so that previously read articles are deleted. It takes DAYS for old articles to finally go away. They should disappear completely when they are scrolled through. Fix the lingering nonsense please.
Both the app and cloud version are excellent and well managed. Keep it up!
I have been more and more pleased with this app and with the feedly service.
Great replacement for Google Reader
