        Tulshi,

        If you see the actual feed – https://www.androidos.in/feed/ there are no old posts present, it seems to be an issue with Feedly, I have contacted them, lets see if they fix it. Can’t do anything from our end.

          This was issue with another reader too. I used to read in NewsSquares for Chrome. Switched thinking it was issue with that extension.

    Canvas 3 better option, considering value for money. Iberry Nuclea N1 is much more powerful then canvass 4.

    After all the advertisement build up to this phone…it ends with this…lol…
