    From that screen shot, it looks like a great RSS view….almost makes me reconsider them over Pulse….

    But…Feedly’s desktop version is so awful I still don’t think I can give them my attention.

    OMG – when are they going to change the weird scrolling so the list view doesn’t scroll a page at a time? Why can’t it just scroll normally, like all the other apps in the universe? I asked them about it on twitter once, and they said it just takes some time to get used to it. Why would anyone need to get used to it? :-/
