... is the free student licence or something like this available in the future ?
i will search for another RSS reader, because 5$/month is too much for the only feature i need: search my feeds
all the other features are not interesting for me. and so it is not worth paying this.
$5/month to be able to search my feeds? I refuse to pay for a feature that I got for free on Google Reader. I'll be switching to another RSS reader because of this shameless attempt to profit by charging for a feature that should have been available in the first place.
For Pro only?? SHAME!

If you're in need of development ideas, I highly recommend ElasticSearch. It's the same engine that powers StackOverflow, Wordpress, foursquare, github, among others. And it's lightning fast, as it calculates indices on an update/insert. This means it's a little slow when you insert, but search is near instant.
Make sure to visit http://www.elasticsearch.org/ instead of http://www.elasticsearch.com/, as the com site is designed to sell support and training.
But for free, or we will just use another service. If thats not good enough, explain why the costs are there, and where the money goes. Be transparent.
Testing out Inoreader. It's nice. The only problem I had so far is the posted I starred is no longer starred.
Someone mentioned moving to The Old Reader. They had their own drama. First TOR decided to kick off newbies(all those that came on around Google Reader's closing). Next they changed their minds and said people could stay because they now have a corporate sponsor. I don't know how to feel about this. If you are thinking of going over their stay here a while or check rss readers first. We don't know how things with TOR will play out.

I agree with most of all. Search functions must be free of charge. Is very useless pin to read later something if I can search in the bunch of feeds. Please add this function for all. That is a BASIC function, not pro.
Yes, search is a feature that should've been there from the beginning, free of charge.
I've got no problem to pay for my regularly used services, but
#1 $5 per month is just too much for a RSS reader (especially considering most of the alternatives are $1-3 a month and I'd be gladly paying that amount for a good RSS service)
#2 those "pro" features are basic, essential features
Actually I was really looking forward to feedly pro announcement, because I was really excited for the features you might announce with it - but once I saw what you guys think are "pro" features I immediately exported my feeds and created a TheOldReader account to switch once they get their new hardware.
Whoever is responsible for this "business model", give him/her a good slap and send him/her back to the drawing table. If a videogame comes with a bad free2play model, it won't get my money and/or attention - on principle. Why should I make an exception in this case?
If you use Outlook the you can use his search function which is very good.
The drawback : no web availability.
I really like feedly but i don't use it because of the missing search function.
In my view InoReader has really stepped up to the plate as far as taking over the mantle of RSS reader from Google, and I have already imported all my feeds from feedly, which at the moment is but a poor second best to their service, it has a great layout (feeds left indented), I can adjust the size and style of font, send to social or by email (unfortunately one click though... it takes two through a "send to" pop up tool bar....) and there is a search feature which although not instant, works and is great addition missed here by the many non-premium users.

15, 889 votes for this function and they think charging a fee is going to go over well? Can't say I'm surprised given the the months of silence. Dumb move. Makes you wonder what other "surprises" are in store. Lost my trust and goodwill.

When I got frustrated with Feedly, I switched to InoReader, which has a good search function, and also scroll arrows, which I find invaluable. Importing my subscriptions was fairly easy. It's slow, compared to Google Reader (refreshing a subscription takes five seconds or so), but nothing is going to be as good as Reader was. InoReader > Feedly.
All I can say is that it's a dirty trick that you've played on us...... offering a free RSS reader with a few bells and whistles (Evernote one click).... letting us get used to and liking feedly...... then taking it all away and making some of the more useful features plus a search available in the Pro version only.... hopefully you will see this as a bad idea and re-integrate this option.
How long before you move all the other tools (facebook/Linkedin/Buffer/Instapaper/Pocket & Del.ici.us) and maybe even the e-mail option to the Pro version.... or restrict the number of feeds you can have as a non-premium user.
With a bit of luck you will re think this and re-integrate Evernote and a "simple" search into the non pro version... Oh and I'm definitely not willing to pay/subscribe just to get these features.
You may find many move to another reader that does not behave like the "street corner drug dealer".... build up a user base with the good stuff then when they're "hooked" take these things away ask for a premium payment for their continued use..... I sincerely hope your business plan and strategy works for you as it doesn't work for us the people you wish to provide a service to...
this is like watching grownups in a bad amateur play - you should be are aware that you are embarrassing yourselves, but somehow manage to hide it - I'm not sticking around to see how this show ends..
Without free feed search, lot of users will use another reader :(
Big strategic mistake for Feedly :(
