I like that I can update on either the phone or my tablet, and read the articles either place.

You can't select your own RSS feeds to display. It only offers 3 news services.

Some feed doesn't sync and you don't know why ?

Counts of stories go into the negatives sometimes. Seeing a bug now that it won't display all stories for a feed, even though it shows the count correctly. Feel like I wasted money on this app.

Needs to support feedly and/or feeding - i will purchase when it does.

There does not seem to be a way to use this RSS reader unless one uses newsblur.com.

What gives?

I've been happily using Feed Reader on Windows Phone for a long time, so when it came out for Windows 8 I bought it without even trying the trial. The Windows 8 version works really well, although a few things do feel a bit 1.0-ish. Like everybody else, there was an initial issue with NewBlur sign-in, but it has been fixed for a while now and all is running smoothly. Thanks SammyJ!

Update: Like others, I've found that News Blur doesn't work. Until it does, this app is just taking up space. I've finally found a reader app for my surface that I can use. Minus one star because I shouldn't be required to have a Google Reader account to read RSS feeds, but given the other features of this program I can live with that. And at least this app doesn't call itself an RSS reader and then require a Google apps account.
