Now that I'm comfortable with the Reeder app I'm seriously considering moving from Feedly to Feedbin. Okay, so it's $5 a month where I'm not currently paying for Feedly but, since clearing out my subscriptions a little while back, I'm close to the 100 feed limit for free accou... colinwalker.blog

@colinwalker What about Feedwrangler? I used it for a couple of years, until during a subscription review I realised that I was grandfathered into a Feedly account that supports more than 100 feeds for free.

@canion I’ve never really heard much about it. Hmm, I wondered if my Feedly account is grandfathered as well. I used to have a lot more than 100 feeds.

@colinwalker I've been using Feedbin since it first came out. It's reliable and easy to use. I find the UI so easy to use that I don't use a native RSS reader with it.

@colinwalker I've been using FeedWrangler since Google Reader shut down. It's not pretty and the UI could be improved but since I use Reeder to do the reading it works perfectly well. I just payed for another year.

@jemostrom @colinwalker Like Jan Erik, I've been a very happy FeedWrangler customer since its inception. I highly recommend it.

@colinwalker Wow, guys, thanks for pointing this out. I threw Dave Winer's Feed for Journalists file at Feedly, it appears I am grandfathered also.

@MrHenko @jemostrom @matthewlang Thanks guys. I’ve opted for Feedbin for the time being. I know it reasonably elegantly handles title-less posts and will be the first 3rd party service supported in @brentsimmons Evergreen. I'll see how it goes.

@colinwalker That is two good arguments for using a service!

@canion how did you figure that out?

@nitinkhanna I can’t exactly remember! I think it might have been something in my account settings? But I definitely know that I have more than 100 feeds, and they all work.
