  1. You’re making a “snapchat” level mistake

    Prior to yesterday’s update, a page of unread items were marked as read once that page was dismissed. That behavior is now gone, even in the classic version. I scan 100’s of articles a day whenever a have a moment or two. My reader MUST support appropriate incremental marking of articles as read in order to support my use case. As of this update it does not - and neither does the Feedly Classic app.

    You are about to lose a large portion of your audience if you don’t bring back this behavior immediately - as in days.

      Hello,would you try enabling mark as read on scroll and long pressing on articles to select form Mark as Read above/below? That would put you close to the previous behavior. We don’t have pages concept in the new app so we don’t know how to mark to mark a current page as read anymore.
      If that is a big change for you, there is Feedly Classic app still available.

    • Show statistics of feeds

      Like erstwhile Google Reader, show statistics on feed regarding: last updated, last read, volume of post/day, volume of read/day, etc. Helps user curate content, drop old/non-updating feeds, etc.

      • always show feed list

        Option to always display the feed list on the left side of the screen when in Title view, as in Google Reader, so we don't have to click on or hover over the 3 bars in the top right corner to temporarily see the list constantly.

        • Support HTML span tag, to display styled text (source code, highlighting etc.) from original post

          I use Google reader to read programming posts. These posts contain lots of source code, that is typically syntax-highlighted using colors etc. via HTML span tags within <pre> blocks. These appear correctly on Google Reader but not on Feedly. In Feedly, the entire <span> tag is displayed as-is, rather than rendered.

          For example: jObject.<span style="">addToolbar</span><span style="color: #080;">(</span><span style="color: #080;">)</span>

          Suspected reason: feedly automatically converts <span> into "&lt ;span&gt ;" rather than keeping the original angled brackets.

          • Allow authenticated feeds from services like Factiva

            My single reason for not converting to Feedly in this moment of dire need is that about half the feeds I follow for work are from our paid Factiva service. Factiva allows me to create a feed for their alerts, and Google Reader just displays the meta-description for each result (just like they do for Google News Alerts); once I click on a story, sure, I have to log in. That's fine. However, when I converted to Feedly, those feeds aren't being pulled in. Instead, I get this error message:
            "Feedly was not able to load feed: Access to this…

            • Feedly does not appear to refresh a post if the author updates it after posting. (Google reader does this).

              Feedly does not appear to refresh a post if the author updates it after posting. (Google reader does this).
              Authors always see typos and clarifications after posting - so this feature is important. The preview has the updated text but the normal click does not. This may resolve itself eventually.

              • Allow adding RSS feeds directly by URL

                You should add an option to add RSS feeds by URL, and not just by browsing your feed selection. What if I want to subscribe to my owns feeds?

                  • Display video length in the thumbnail

                    Videos, like YouTube, could use the length of the video in the thumbnail so that the article doesn't need to be opened/read to find that out

                    • Provide a way to read alt texts when available

                      Many feeds (xkcd.com's, for example) consist of a comic image with an alt text message. Google Reader presents the image and then a "Show alt text/Hide alt text" toggle below. It would be good to have similar functionality in Feedly.

                        • mark articles as read when I open them in a new tab (ie go to the original article page)

                          I sometimes open articles in a new tab by middle-clicking the headline which opens the original article so I can see comments or whatnot. However, the article is not marked as read in feedly and there is no option to do so.

                            Please add a vertical scroll bar at the right of feed content area, in order for us to move along a long list of threads much faster, as in the Google Reader. Thanks.

                              Issue with "news" provider Topix, urls do not land in the news page but are redirected to their advertising page, clickbait for visits.

                                • Open item in a background tab with a native shortcut

                                  Recently, the third party extension that I use to open Feedly articles in a background tab broke, for no apparent reason.

                                  One of the reasons I use Feedly is because it allows me to quickly review items from a range of different sources, then open the ones I'm interested in. The lack of a native, reliable way to do this with the keyboard is a glaring omission in Feedly's features.

                                  Please add a setting to allow this. People have been requesting it since 2013 and it's been ignored. Or at least tell us why you're not willing to include it.

                                    • make it easier to add new feeds

                                      I am looking for customer service. I am no longer able to add feeds. I have 22 feeds currently but if I try to search for a site or blog I want to add, I'm taken to a page where the only clickable button is to upgrade. I don't want to upgrade--I would like to continue using the service as I have.

                                      • a form of mechanism to mark articles as read as you scroll through, without the need of a click.

                                        Right now there is no way of marking articles as read without clicking, i think that a mechanism for marking as read as you scroll is needed.

                                        • Please fix the side arrows

                                          Recently those great arrows that let you advance through your feeds, from one to the next, disappeared. Please put them back in. Also, please put a real feedback link on your website. Big pain to have to google this site. Don't be like Google and Facebook, where it's almost impossible to give feedback.
