    1. I think you will not be able to buy a lifetime subscription because the subscription was limited lifetime offer on 05.08.2013. So it seems to me that such an offer will be gone.

    2. I want the lifetime plan back too. I’m not paying $45pa when I could have paid $90 for life. That’s just poor value.

      I’m happy to pay but only for the plan previously offered.

      Nice that I got an email about this one but had you emailed me last time (for the lifetime plan) I might have had chance to get one.

          1. With wordpress it’s not like I can list them eaisly like blogger let’s you do. I use a combination of bloglovin and email to read the blogs I like. Works for me. xox Thanks for the tops though….

    1. Didn’t you get the memo? If at any point during the enienvg you’re looking for sex, then even if you stop wanting it, you still got what’s coming to you if someone rapes you. Women who look for sex are dirty whores and that’ll teach them to like and want sex.By that logic, I’m way overdue.A majority of sexually active women I know, and even several who are not active, have been raped or physically abused by a partner at some point in their lives. I cannot help but wonder when it’ll be my turn.

          1. Hi Teli,First of all, I must say this is a very informative and huefpll post. I’m about to launch a blog of my own and your post has helped me answer many questions that I had about trackback and pingback. However, I’m a little worried about the privacy issues regarding trackback and pingback though.You mentioned in your post that When sending a trackback, be mindful of sending a pingback. If the site you’re linking to has pingbacks enabled, be sure not to trackback. I just want to know whether you enabled both pingback and trackback on your site, because I saw one blog entry has a permalink to this post and the comments has a trackback to that entry.So, am I correct to say that a blog owner should turn off either Pingback or Trackback in the WordPress->Options->Discussion? to avoid having two linkback?ThanksBernardp.s. is there a RSS comment feed that I can add?

    1. Go pro… or deal with it.

      I’m happy that they are charging now, because one Google trick is enough…

      Once burned…

      Have fun…

      1. Not paying $45 a year for something so small. $20 maybe. Feedly needs to deal with it and stop taking away features. They took out Pocket as well.

  1. Disappointing to need to pay for search as that’s a major feature missing from the google reader transition (you guys pulled that off extremely well). Evernote, Pocket, and support strike me as just a minor feature bundle to help people get over the fact that they’d have to pay for searching their content.

    If another company does it free, I will likely switch despite the great start you’ve had.

    1. Hi Seth, the funding is helping us invest in the hardware needed to run the feedly service. Search is not a trivial function to build. Pro users backing feedly are going to help us make the search a lot better going forward and make sure that the service is sustainable. -Edwin

      1. Sustainability is definitely important and I get that. My problem is the way in which it’s being accomplished. Paying for search isn’t worth it as I might search 2 – 5 times a month. Possibly more during the holidays but you catch my drift.

        Instead what your team should be considering is other less annoying solutions. You just received insight into a large amount of users and what they read daily, use it. Serve up custom ads based on my feeds. Show me where I can buy stuff I’ve starred or shared. Partner with retailers of the most common items types read, drive traffic there and get $$ that way. Show me an ad for a couch sale in my interior design news feed. Basically come up with a more creative method of generating the funding you need without limiting functionality. Click here to pay $45 to find the thing you already read once but forgot to star or share is not cool.

        Don’t get me wrong, I love feedly. But if you’re current freemium-like and slightly over priced subscription search model doesn’t change, you’ll be forcing users like me to look into other options. I found feedly by looking into other options when google made the mistakes they made. Don’t let history repeat itself.

        Oh, and you’re not fooling anyone by making evernote part of the premium option. If I had to guess, you’ve realized that I could just evernote everything and search for stuff there.

        I have faith in you feedly, don’t let me down!

        1. Haha, why would you “look into other options” when feedly free is the best RSS option out there? And if it’s not, why are you using it right now? What a limp, empty attempt at bullying them into giving you more for less. Should’ve just gotten on your back and kicked your feet in the air.

          1. Because it’s one search away and always will be. If you go to lifehacker.com and search for “RSS Reader” there’s 20 other options out there and that’s just 1 site. Just telling it like it is.

            1. Bah, when Google closed shop everybody whined they gladly pay premium for it…

              And now? Nothing… not happy with almost all you need in a casual rss reader for free.

              And spare me the bull… with ads. Everybody hates them in apps or from Google. Especially targeted ads. Better some features for free and the rest for premium.

              The only improvement I can think of are more premium options (maybe configurable?).

              1. I never said I would pay premium. I voted against it when Feedly had their stupid poll. So you are wrong – not everybody wanted to pay premiums.

        2. there IS some hope… although not convenient when using a computer, because the search IS avaliable on some of Feedly’s partners for iOS and Android. But Note this, I am not sure with all of Feedly’s partners, Because I only have Newsify, wich has partered with Feedly and has search, view all, all in folder and all in RSS capability. to see a screenshot of it, go to this link. Note: taken on an iPod Touch 5th Gen. http://i43.tinypic.com/15cnak8.png

      1. reader.aol.com Sounds crazy but it’s actually pretty decent. Has evernote and pocket integration built in, will have search soon for *cough*free*cough* and a responsive layout (adapts to browser width). Just no native mobile app yet.

        On another note.. Feedly does not have an export option which is a royal pain. The reasons to change just keep building.

        1. Have much fun when they close shop or bombard you with ads (or are you cheating with adblocker :-)

          Better option is asking for more payment variants. Maybe a lower rate for lesser options?

          Nothing is really for free very long…

          1. I don’t mind the single (non-targeted from the looks of it) ad on the aol reader. As for closing shop well it’d just be on to the next one but at least with other readers you can export. Feedly could potentially close shop just as easily (if not more so being a start up) if there isn’t enough people on their pro version.

            All that being said, I think I’ll use both and treat it as a competition. Took the time to move all my feeds over but I’ll read half on feedly and half on aol (or another option if I come across something better).

            Just typing aol mAkEs mE rEmeMbeR NoNsEnSe LiKE tHiS thOugH, LoL

      2. Teli, Thanks for your response.I may have mssied something here but I just want to be absolutely sure. When I do the trackback should I have the pingback check box in WP WYSIWYG editor checked or unchecked? I did my first trackback after reading your post and don’t think it has worked. I had the checkbox checked because when I post a plugin called pingomatic pings a list of services including technorati. I thought I needed the box checked for this to work. I’d be greatful if you could clarify for me please.Thanks for your help.Eileen

  2. I would really love to support you guys as I have been with you for many years now. However, I can’t justify that much money for a quite shallow feature list. Article search is deffinitely a great feature but the others don’t mean anything to me.

    I would like to see a fuller feature list and then I would definitely sign up.
    I’m thinking tumblr intigration ala Flipboard.

    1. Shawn. We will be adding new features regularly both free and pro. The goal of the pro version is to make feedly sustainable and help us accelerate. Better tumblr integration is definitely in the list of things we want to offer. That one will probably be free. -Edwin

      1. How about an a la cart “pay per feature” style approach? $2 / month per pro feature, or $5 / month for all 4. For example, I’d happily pay, say, $2 / month just for search, but the other features aren’t worth anything to me so the $5 ends up seeming steep.

        Anyway just a thought.

        1. Yes. My thought also.

          Plus maybe the option to donate for options/add-ons? If the sum is reached it free for all.

          Pro maybe with faster service? Faster article updates? More feeds?

  3. I won’t buy anything until you bring back tagging into preferences section. I need to edit tags, delete tags, rename tags. This is an important feature that was once part of the preferences.

  4. It’s pretty lame to show the search box to free users and then have it redirect to the sign up ad for Feedly pro. There’s already a bar up top advertising Pro!

  5. I don’t understand why you would want people to pay for the article search. I really appreciate that you created feedly but just because you can and you want some money you should not make us pay for features we had in google reader.

    1. I was a long-time Google Reader user. Yes, it would be nice to have a free service with all the bells and whistles, like search, that were free in Reader, but the reality is Google bailed on their users (that’s what free buys you) and Feedly needs money to buy the hardware to support a quality service.

        1. Google gave it only for free to kill the marketplace… after failing to monetize it and to promote their Shi… g+ they killed your free service.

          Nothing is really free… only the government can offer free services. And normally all people pay for them…

        2. But the funding model is completely wrong.
          Pay attention to this numbers:
          There are actually in Goole Paly 1.000.000 to 5.000.000 of downloads of feedly to Android.
          In Apple store you should have more or less the same.
          Plus this users you have the ones that only use desktop version.
          Only with mobile users you already assure the sustainability of feedly.

          Nowadays you should have at least 4.000.000 to 5.000.000 mobile users. If you charge $1/month to each user you have a monthly gross revenue very, very interesting.

          You will have more success if millions of user pay $1/month instead you have some thousands paying $5/month.

          Desktop access should be always free (search and all the features included) as it work like a decoy to catch more and more users.

          Nowadays you have a growing wave of smartphones all over the world. You need to catch the wave. Desktop advanced features will drive users crazy to get premium features on the mobile, and pay for it, but you only be able to get a successful fee membership with $1 or less monthly, increasing to millions of users.

          Please think serious and smartly on this issue.

    2. That picture is amainzg. Gotta love the Natty Boh guy.Sorry about the no sleeping. I have the opposite problem. I can’t fall asleep, and then can’t wake up in the morning. Hope tonight is better for you!

  7. Hi Edwin,
    Are there plans to extend the date of unread articles past the 30 day limit before they are auto marked as read? Or at least for Pro members in the interim? This is a major downer and alters the way I check my feed as I am forced to resort everything by oldest first and read them in that order before they are lost.
    -Rob (lifetime member)

  8. Hi:
    Little by little. Soon we will see new functionalities.
    I hope it’s for good and all.
    Support them fully the inclusion of PayPal.
    PayPal is much better than up paying by card. I recommend it, because many people use it as they do not you pay the maintenance commission.
    Is a best option for everyone.

  9. What about the Touch Arcade ratings bug fix?
    What about mail the full article?

    How much should I pay for these fixes and functions?

  10. Fantastic news for a long time I use the Pro version and to be honest I’m very happy with it. :) I am very happy to have contributed to the good sense of the word in this project. :)

  11. Interesting, but I will wait for a lifetime option since I just don’t like and never use suscription models.

  12. Help me understand… you are offering the pro version when something as basic as not being able to delete/rename a tag does not work and hasn’t worked in months and months and months? I don’t get it…

  13. I think you’d best stop reminding us of that great “first 5000 backers” idea you had.

    I’d like one-click for Pocket, but it’s not worth $5/mo, and I think it’s kind of silly to paywall it anyway. I guess all new features no matter how insignificant will go to pro now, eh. Not that I’m complaining; it’s a great service as-is.

  14. Why you remove the “Blog” link from the sidebar?
    Since V15, you remove useful stuff with every new version!
    I’m so SICK of the UNASKED changes!
    I wish i never bought a lifetime licence!
    You pissing me off!

  15. At the moment I don’t really need the features that the pro version offers and 45$/year is a bit too much for me to support the working you are doing, even if is very good. For me it should be nice if you do a Feedly Not So Pro maybe with only ads removed and 1 feature or 2 for 10$/year

  16. “What is a cynic? A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.”
    Oscar Wilde

    Funny how people know what this service should cost and know nothing what it means to provide a service like this.
    There are so many alternatives and they still come here to whine about the decline of the GReader and how Feedly lured them into their service just to take away the search feature and make them pay for that (even if it’s explained a hundred times that RSS Search was provided by google before and search means resources).
    They don’t even read that Pro features will be merged into the free plan sooner or later. I don’t get it…
    Feedly as a free version is great and seriously – so far I didn’t use the Pro Features – I payed because I use it every day. A lot! And the people behind do a great job.
    Just sayin’

  17. You need to bring back the “trash”/”mark as read” -button/icon at the end of each article. It used to be there, but now its only at the top.
    Why would anyone want to read a long article and then scroll back up to mark it read?

  18. Do we really need additional blue bar at the top if there is already and upgrade link near the version number on the left?

  19. It would be nice to get feedly mini back. I miss the tool to add web pages to my saved for later feed and have had to create a tool to do this via pinboard.

    I’m not averse to paying, but the only worthwhile feature is the search (you can use IFTTT to integrate Evernote or Pocket). Article search is important to me, but $45 is a very steep price for a single infrequently used feature. I mainly want to search my saved items so I’ll just find a way to sync them to a separate searchable system.

    Really like Feedly, but not so impressed by this…

  20. I have paid to upgrade to “pro” membership solely for the *search* feature and I feel slighted for it.

    1. It’s not responsive — “incremental” (each “iteration” only returns less than a screen full of results) searches sometimes take 10 seconds or longer or timeout even. That’s unacceptable.

    2. Search appears to be solely confined to articles within the last 30 days. Why can’t my entire article base be queried? It makes search a lot less useful and in combination with #1, have a hard time justifying why I spent $45.

    3. Special characters (i.e., ‘%’) cause an error page to be returned. Looks like it goes directly into the URL unescaped as if it is escaped (i.e., ‘%25’ for ‘%’) then the search will run.

    Not asking for my money back at this point, but shoddy business to charge customers for a half-baked product.

    1. Can anyone confirm those limitations ? I’m considering getting a “pro” account, and those issues seem very annoying… Especially the second one.

    2. I’m definitely not buying a pro account. What a wastage of money. Seeing the amount of bugs and issues that are still not fixed it does no sense spending such a sum.

  21. I want Google Reader back…. :( I don’t have the money to do this, but RSS is useless to me w/o a search…

  22. what a joke. Keeping the search option in the free version and when someone types and search they get the pro advert for $5. Wont be long before the mobile app is added to the Pro subscription or even the save article feature.

    Feedly was great until you added a Pro version and now all roads will eventually lead to the Pro Version despite assurance the free version will remain.

    Hopefully other RSS readers are developed similar to google reader.


  23. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really
    something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  24. Happy to pay for the service as I want you guys to stick around, but the four new features added no value for me. Hopefully future roll-outs add some good extras.

  25. I wanted to search for a specific article in one of my news feeds so I entered a keyword into the Search box and found out it is a Pro only feature. Fine, so I clicked the Support menu to see if I can find another way to search for an article, but that is also a Pro feature.

    What the hell? Showing these features to people, features that most sites don’t charge for, is insulting and shows your company is just a big bag of dicks. Search and Support are pay only, come on! There is no way I would pay you a dime for anything.

  26. My team really needs integration to HipChat or some similar collaboration tool.

    My use case is to enable our team to post interesting articles to Hipchat rooms where others can see them. Ideally, it would be possible to post from Feedly to HipChat.Extra credit would be to allow individual users to see a flag for which articles they have read from those collated for the team – essentially to embed Feedly functionality within HipChat.

    The posting to Evernote functionality is pretty similar, but that’s not a fully blown collaboration tool.

    I could see us subscribing at least 10 seats if not more than that. We’re a rapidly growing innovation fund and keen users of Feedly! Happy to discuss live!

  27. So I know if I go Pro I get the Evernote feature with my desktop and laptop versions, but will I also get it with my Feedly iPad app?

  28. his name is Lee Ward, had clients sintitg there with him in his office.All I needed to do was give him my credit card number so he could hold a31,399 from it just incase I delayed in sending the the documents for the new owners!!Ofcourse, I smelled a rat!! I told him I don’t use cards or cheques.He’s calling me again today to see if I’ve talked my husband into using HIS card for the transaction.i’m going to have a bit of fun with Lee Ward when he rings today!!Another name within Excalibur is Sally Hansen, she contacted me the day before Lee Ward, to see if I wanted to sell my CCConcierge, I said I did then wham! Lee’s on the phone with buyers in his office the next day.I was duped by CCConcierge into paying out a35,000 a few short years ago, money down the drain as far as I’m concerned ..it’s not going to happen a second time!!!

  29. I bought pro, but I can’t search in the app and I can’t mark search results read on pc? What on earth did I pay for?
