I just would love to have an auto update of unread items, even while I am reading.
I don't want to have to press the refresh icon to see that there are new unread.
Infact, I love my extension (Chrome) where I see the number of unread items once there are some, and I go straight to visit the site to read them.
Thanks. See ya in a few weeks

I agree. For mobile devices, at least auto-refresh when it's the foreground app and you unlock the device, or when you switch to the app from some other app. For web version, maybe every N minutes. Please!
Having auto refresh issues. Many of my RSS are not refreshing properly. I can go to the website where the feed was originated and can see that new posts are not refreshing in feedly. This occurs also in RSS feeds created from websta / instagram feeds. What did you do ??? Please fix.

Not sure why they haven't implemented this, since it's something that Google Reader had, InoReader has, every Webmail client has--it's old news by now. I thought needing to manually refresh was a thing of the past.
Aaron, this is arrogance to presume that only your point of view is right. I personally would love to have automatic articles refresh too. It has to be noninteruptive for sure, but in the world of html5 having to press Refresh button is a nonsense. I believe it can be done gracefully without interrupting current open article.

Currently, feedly has auto-refresh but it's more a bug than feature: It will reload the list of articles as you read them -> current article will be lost.
Instead, Feedly should only display that there are new items with a new button or an icon.
