Please recommend me a well-designed iPad feed reader that doesn't require Google Reader to use.

I currently use Flipboard. I love the way the app works and the clean, uncluttered design, but I no longer wish to use Google Reader. Flipboard allows the addition of non-Reader feeds, but it handles them terribly.
Thus, I'm looking for a new feed reader. I've accepted that I'm not going to find something that's essentially Flipboard minus Google, but I'm struggling to find an iPad app -- any iPad app -- that does the following:
- allows me to subscribe/unsubscribe to feeds from within the app
- keeps track of read and unread articles and only displays unread ones
- combines feeds into one timeline, rather than having a separate timeline for each feed
- ideally, supports sending to Instapaper and Pinboard, but that's not essential
Things I'm not interested in: reading or posting to Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Flickr, etc.
