I suggest you ...

Allow following new feeds without forcing "upgrade to pro"

When I try to add a new feed and press "Follow" I am taken to an upgrade page. That shouldn't be necessary as I do not have 100 feeds yet and really enjoy the free version. Is this a bug or did you move the treshold before forcing upgrade? The upgrade page gives no explanation, but my feed isn't added.

        If you're trying to add a feed which is not Google Alert or Google News/Keyword Alert - please let us know which one it is exactly, we'll have a look on that.

        Same for me. They're not google alerts or news. It does it every single time you try to add any new feed, and the only solution seems to be retrying over and over again until it finally lets you through. (usually upwards of five times)

        Your Ads are obtrusive enough that they actually prevent me from using your product.
        Stop it.

        Indeed why not actually tell existing users you´re going to do this instead of just redirecting the whole time to an upgrade page, so existing users like me can go off and find an aggregator that does do what we want it to

        Dear Petr,

        It would have been great to specify it. There's nothing about that in the description of the free version.
        So basically, if I can't add searches from Google, or specific searches on specific websites (cause I've got the same issue when I try to add a keyword search in a website), then what is Feedly made for?

        The free version seem unusable, every feed I try to add takes me to the upgrade page.

        Too bad.

        Nope it wasn't. It appears it was a bug, because now the same thing works.
