One of the most popular feed app is Feedly which also contains many other features besides sync capability with Google Reader. Initially when you first launch Feedly, offers a menu of featured sites from around the Web. These sites cover almost all the categories starting from design based websites till Android or Apple business. You can go through the complete list and subscribe to the feed of any site featured individually, and you can start to follow the whole category with one tap. I wont recommend that, because it is going to cluster your feed and you may not read anything instead you will be only able to scroll here and there. Also you can search for specific URLs, by typing the names or topics within Feedly and subscribe directly if you like it, same as you used to do once you were using Google Reader.

What differentiates complicated apart from other applications is its ability to cache some or all of your feeds offline reading. Latest news from your favorite sites and blogs, even when you’re offline. Simply use your free Google Reader account to subscribe to websites you’d like to keep track of. Byline will automatically stay in sync and bring you new content, putting thousands of RSS and Atom feeds at your fingertips. Offline reading is a very useful feature, but the application of splitting slows down the entire application, which is not ideal. Plus, the ads in the free version are a distraction. [Download]
