Magazinelike interface

Feedly's large images and creative layouts almost make you feel like you're reading a magazine.

Lists and thumbnails

Even Feedly's list view is relatively attractive compared with what you get from many other apps in its category.

Easy to navigate

With the tabs on the left, you can easily navigate between categories and individual sites. Unfortunately, though, there's no two-panel view that would keep the navigation on the left while you're reading.

Reading view

Individual posts look nice in the reading view. From here, you can save the post to Pocket or Instapaper, share it, or open it up in your browser.

Widget

Feedly comes with home page widgets that show you recent posts, and you can set the refresh rate.

Easy to subscribe

To subscribe, simply tap the "+" button on the right. This is easy enough, but it would be nice to be able to subscribe to entire categories at once.
