Google Reader got culled by Google in July. It was the best solution for RSS news feeds. Fortunately, Feedly arrived, and provided the backend cloud solution, which many other apps now use. At the time, I did wonder how Feedly could provide this service for free. Well now I know how.
Feedly is to launch its Pro offering, which for $5 per month (or $45 annually), will offer article search, secure browsing through HTTPS, the ability to one-click save to Evernote, and support priority.
However, I just can’t decide if $5 per month or $45 annually is too high a price to pay. Also, with a number of news websites hiding behind paywalls, the cost of using the internet is slowly but surely rising.
And in the longer term, will other apps that use the Feedly cloud solution have to move to a monthly subscription?
What’s your view on this? Is $5 a month too much, too little or not acceptable?
