I signed up a year ago for a free trial, never even used the site, forgot about it and got charged a year later without an email reminder a few days before that. I asked for a refund given I hadn't used or would ever use the site again and I got an answer from the founder saying I couldn't get a refund because refunds are expensive for them since they are Paypal's international customers - considering foreign exchange and reversal fees. Instead they upgraded my account without permission and was offered lifetime upgrade since I wouldn't get the refund. So unprofessional... I deactivated my account and I hope they don't bother me again.

Feedspot is very user friendly, has abundant feeds available, and is easy to choose favorites. You can also easily post to your favorite social medias.

Stealing Email Addresses

about Feedspot · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful Report as spam

I received an invite from a work colleague saying they want to connect with me on Feedspot.com. So I signed up, added a few sites and even signed up for the Gold Account. Shortly after that i received emails on two separate email accounts that i use for business purposes only, they are completely private, asking me to sign up for Feedspot.com claiming I had sent the invitations. In no way did i give consent, and in no way did i provide either of the two email addresses to Feedspot.com. I instantly deactivated my account. I also informed my colleague and she says she never even invited me. So obviously Feedspot.com is somehow spying, illegally, for users information and linking to any users related, stealing their information.

Feedspot will spam all your contacts without your permission

I signed up using my google login, and it must have taken access to all my contacts, and suddenly all my contacts are being spammed saying I want to connect with them on feedspot.

MobileRSS

about Feedspot · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

I'm actually looking for a good IOS iphone/ipad mobile reader to replace the MobileRSS app which is now dead since Google Reader closed it doors. MobileRSS was simple and clean with just the right touches and features. So far I have not found anything like it. If feedspot's app can be exactly like MobileRSS but linking to Feedspot instead of Google Reader, that would be ideal for me. Thanks for building Feedspot.

i have been devestated by the loss of google reader so i would love to help make the world a better place by contributing to a good replacement. Feedspot is so far the best replacement i've found. Much better than others.

Performance

about Feedspot · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

Speed is pretty Good. I like the way you made it responsive. Perhaps it could be better by pre-loading some articles below the field-of-view as I scroll? It seems like it waits until I hit the end, and then loads more articles. Feedspot is far better app than other replacements i've tried so far.

Suggestions

Feedspot is pretty good. I would suggest getting rid of the "divider lines" and boxes in the UI entirely. They just add to the visual noise and you already have appropriate white space to create a visual hierarchy. Follow Feedly's lead here. Your's is a perfect RSS reader. Good Job.

Be careful when signing up. I was hit with an unexpected Credit Card charge. I hadn't even utilized the service, my profile was empty. Regardless, the Owner contacted me asking me to reverse my CC dispute. I reluctantly agreed and he continued to pester me via email until it was finished. I can honestly say I had no useful benefit of their services

Don't trust FeedSpot! They robbed me!

I took the 1 year Free Gold trial but cancelled my subscription in Paypal as I was not satisfied with their services.

Payment after the 1 year free trial was supposed to be made in September 2016 but I did not pay and cancelled. Then, FeedSpot took my money from Paypal in January 2017 although I had cancelled that subscription in Paypal!!

I asked for a refund and I received no response from the FeedSpot support but they downgraded my account in January although they took my money that same month!

Feedspot has a great web app. Best among all the other replacements i've tried so far. I do not need an app A better, faster mobile web would be perfect for me. Thanks for keeping RSS Alive!

Speed

about Feedspot · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Thanks for trying to build a good feed reader. My biggest issue is the speed of loading items. I have to review 1000+ feed posts a day, and Feedspot seems to freeze after 10-15 posts and I have to wait for several seconds for more posts to load. The perfect scenario would be if it can perform as a never-ending stream with no waits, Google Reader was almost like that

I like its clean-cut looks, that it works like a charm and your eagerness to make it happen. I'm neither on Facebook nor Twitter but I'll make sure to spread the word about Feedspot to all the people I know!
