Alternative for Feedly?

I know rss readers have been discussed at length on HN but I tried several of them and couldn't find what I was looking for (not for free/cheap anyway).

Here's my problem:

In Feedly's "Today" view I only always get 12 articles per feed. Why can't I see all articles from today or the last 24 hours or something? I can see more if I refresh the "Today" view, but I don't want to have to keep refreshing. I just want to see everything for today (whatever today means in Feedly).

Any suggestions?

What would also be great is once I finished with "Today" I could see the top X most popular articles from all my older unread articles. That way I read through the latest plus the most popular from last week. And I'm done. 0 inbox.

I've mostly given up trying to keep up with RSS. I feel like if I subscribe to "top story" feeds, I'm missing out on a lot of interesting stuff. If I subscribe to the information firehose, it's too much for me to consume. After years of trying tons of readers and configurations I've just settled on a subscription to a local online publication and a few strictly moderated subreddits that are relevant to my interests. That said, of all the readers I've tried I liked Newsblur the best.

I'm currently using Inoreader[1] with the Supporter plan ($20/yr), works well so far.

I've been using http://newsblur.com for years (since Google News died) and have been very happy with it. They'll give you 64 RSS subscriptions for free, and unlimited subscriptions for $36/year (I pay for the unlimited version).

I use their web interface, but I think they also have phone apps available.

I've been using newsblur as well (unlimited as well), but only on my phone. From an iphone to a pixel it's been fine and dandy. There was a problem with dark mode page viewing messing up light view, but it was fixed fairly quickly. I kept an eye on the issue at github. They're good people.

Try Feedbro, it is an extension for chrome and firefox. It is free and unlimited and the UI is customisable to a degree.

The one downside is it is not a cloud app, so won't sync across devices.

I have been using it since inoreader and feedly introduced caps and I am a happy convert.

I like feedbin

inoreader is pretty good. Free plan has 150 feeds, and $20/yr for the cheapest paid plan.
