Battery Full Blinkfeed on Galaxy S 5

Hi folks... I am kind of confused whether to go with HTC One M8 or Galaxy S5. The only thing that is stopping me from getting S5 is it misses the blink feed... from my perspective...

Is there a way i can side load it... DO i need to root the phone for this??? Need some help here!

It's supposed to get released to the app store at some point for anyone who wants it.

They have what's called My Magazine in place of Blinkfeed. However, for some reason, you can't add Facebook to it. It does allow for Twitter and Google+ though.

what about flipbook? Seems like it would be similar. Great app for sure, and I think its what the "My magazine" is based off of from what I read elsewhere.

My magazine sucks and its quite laggy. To the OP blinkfeed should be released soon by HTC and made available to non HTC devices.

My magazines seems fairly worthless as you don't have as many feeds as you do with blinkfeed. Real limited on what you can have show up when compared to blinkfeed that has many different feeds you can have. Hope they fix that for now using blinkfeed and disable the magazine.
