NewsFlash – a program designed to complement an already existing web-based RSS reader account. It combines all the advantages of web based services like syncing across all your devices with everything you expect from a modern desktop program: Desktop notifications, fast search and filtering, tagging, handy keyboard shortcuts and having access to all your articles as long as you like.

NewsFlash is the spiritual successor to FeedReader, it is a different application. There are differences and most of them are on purpose.
For services that are supported by NewsFlash as well, migration is as easy as can be: just log into your account and sync away.
Some services supported by FeedReader have not yet found their way into NewsFlash. Work for Google Reader style APIs is already on the way (FreshRSS, InoReader, The Old Reader).
Nextcloud News will probably only happen as soon as their APIv2 draft gets implemented.
