    It never seemed to just... work like Reader did; I have to go through hoops just to add a site to my Feedly, rather than just putting in a URL and suddenly having complete access to that site's RSS. Maybe it's because I was young and ignorant as to how this works when I was using Reader, I don't know.

    It's the best alternative to Google Reader that I have ever used. It's not using the more popular these days look that's oversaturated with huge screenshots or banners with only minimal text but uses the interface that is almost identical to what GR offered. Highly recommended!

    Integrated sharing and threaded commenting. Because it's a paid service, it doesn't share / sell your personal information, good mobile apps and compatibility with third-party apps.
