Like the mosaic icons concept! A little like gallery app but vertically?

Why not merge this step with RSS_reader_step2.1? I.E., tapping on "list mode" switch from mosaic view to list. Also, I prefer to dispose the mosaic items in a vertical order, because the list is also in vertical. When a user changes the view, it's better to maintain the reading order to avoid confusion.

Vertical space is for other feeds, with their pictures. Mosaic mode is an "esploded" version of the list mode, and i believe the two modes should be similar in certain aspects :)

This is my suggestion for Mosaic and List views.

your mockup mixes the feed list view with the feed content view: you can't show the content of a feed in the feed list, because it would take forever to scroll it (imagine having 10 feeds with their content in the same screen...).

That's why my idea of mosaic mode is horizontal: it is a preview of the content, not the content itself.
Once you are in the feed content views, then you can represent it with a vertical mosaic like the one you are proposing.

I think, me too, that mosaic mode should be in vertical like Windows 8 in a Nokia Lumia. Of course we can do better, and putting mosaic mode in vertical means use the heigh of the screen. In fact the screen is longer than wide.

This is the way Google Plus actually handles subscriptions. Btw, se are seeing only one feed at a time and the corresponding articles below. Switching between mosaic and list views is just a way to compact or show more content.

Mosaic mode can't be vertical, because it is a preview of the feed content, not the content itself. what if the user has 20 feeds and wants to read feed number 12? why should the app force the user to scroll for ages a single endless vertical mosaic?

The horizontal mosaic is meant to let the user see what pictures are present in each feed and then tap the feed OR the news and see the full entry.
