When Google announced that Google Reader, which I had used for many years, would be no more, I was quite disappointed.  I chose Feedly as my replacement reader, and a while back I complained on Facebook that I was not all that happy with my choice.  For the last couple of weeks, I have been using Feedly exclusively to follow the blogs on my list, and, as I've learned my way around, I'm pleased to say that I'm now much more comfortable with with my new reader.

The folks at Feedly are trying hard to please the new subscribers to their service, so I thought I owed it to them to amend my previous opinion from negative to positive. So.  If you are looking for a new reader, I recommend Feedly.

The only thing I don't like about Feedly is that there is no way to "mark as unread" in the mobile version. I hope they fix that soon.

8thday, there is a way. Click on an unread blog post on Feedly, and when it opens, you will see at the top, "keep unread". Click on the words, and the post will appear as a new post in the list on the left sidebar. I hope I'm making sense.

I can do that on my computer, but I don't see it on my mobile device. Help?

8thday, I don't have Feedly set up yet on my mobile device, so I can't help you. Sorry. :-(
