I don't need minimalism, over-complicated UIs, personalized reccomandations and so on. I don't need social sharing (on the desktop at the least).
I need a fast, easy to follow, predictable UI. An easy way to categorize feeds. I would like to be able to read and save my OPML in the cloud (a github gist, a Google Drive document, etc) and possibly use on another device with the same app or possibly even with another. On the mobile side, it would be great if the reader was a progressive webapp rather than an android/iphone application.
But… the service I use, Feedbin, just implemented that: https://feedbin.com/blog/2019/08/20/save-webpages-to-read-la.... The saved pages could use better categorization (tags/folders), but Feedbin has those for RSS feeds so I suspect they’ll exist eventually. If/when I can categorize saved pages and stop using Instapaper, I can’t think of anything else about Feedbin I’d change.
