I was so sad and decided to look for other options. After testing out feedly, bloglovin, digg... feedly won hands down. The mobile app's looks are flawless, swiping through articles on my subway rides seemlessly.
Transitioning all your subscriptions over is such a breeze...
Awesome perk... you can now pin directly from feedly. Now there's no worry on keeping up with your favorite blogs!
