So far, so good. I wish I could customise the colours, as the month on the date icon is hard to read. Here is an article screenshot:

The gravatar (my face) obscures the title of the article, so this is something the authors need to fix. Nonetheless, it is a free plugin and worth trying out. (WPTap also makes some cool-looking paid plugins but I haven’t tried them.) Please share below how it performs on your platform.
