I tried to like Blinkfeed but find that I don't use it, especially now that I use Apex Launcher. Seeing as Blinkfeed is baked into the OS, and that it can't be fully disabled, does anyone have thoughts on how to minimize any battery drain that the app may have? Is the most I can do simply to unsubscribe all feeds and remove it as a home screen?

Thanks for any guidance.

Not sure if there's a way to disable auto-refresh, but you can set it to auto-refresh on wifi only.
That will help a little.

I have the impression that it drains very little battery though - it rarely refreshes on its own and I usually have to pull it down to do a manual refresh.
