Description

A news reader for iOS with support for various sync services. Reeder 4 adds new features like… - The new Bionic Reading mode - An in-app Read Later service which syncs with iCloud - Image previews in the articles list (finally) - Search - Much improved article viewer - More layout options - Improved reader view - More shortcuts, matching the ones of Reeder for Mac Supported sync services: - Feedbin - Feedly - Feed Wrangler - FeedHQ - NewsBlur - The Old Reader - Inoreader - BazQux Reader - Instapaper If you want to use a self-hosted service, Reeder should work with services which use the Fever or the Google Reader API. Or just standalone RSS (without syncing) if you don't want to use any service. Reeder 4 is also available for macOS. Please note: If you rely on image caching, this feature unfortunately wasn't ready for the 4.0 release but it's in the works.

Beautiful reader

Been using this for a month and love it. I have not noticed any bugs or issues whatsoever as referenced in a few of the critical reviews and I find the aesthetics to be perfect.

Good but not perfect

2
Good update but aesthetics are off: feed list spacing is too loose with a lot of space between different newsfeeds and the last feed I read is still displayed even though there are no unread feeds in it. Seems to be a bug.

Bugs, crashes, less features than previous version

1
Yikes, wish I hadn’t purchased this. Lots of bugs, easily reproducible crashes, and missing features that were in the excellent version three. No response from developer using app feedback. Developer has long history of being slow to update apps and fix bugs, so I guess I’ve wasted my money - wish I’d waited a year to see if anything gets better, suggest you not purchase now, you’ll only be frustrated.

Needs UX tweeking

4
The new UI is generally sharp, but it comes with a whole new set of quirks. The animations are extremely slow, and cannot (yet) be changed. The sync process still works, and the interface customization is inline with what I’d expect for Reeder, but it doesn’t feel like anything has changed to justify the re-purchase cost over Reeder 3.

Reeder is my favorite RSS app

4
I’ve been using Reeder for forever. The new version is great! One thing I’d like to see come back is image alt text. This is critical for those of us who subscribe to web comics. The old reeder let you get at alt text pretty easily.

Great App

5
Great app. Been using it for years. I do have a feature request though. I would like to be able to filter feeds based on keywords. An example would be Gizmodo. I would like to be able to filter out any posts that are about superhero’s. I’m not interested in that and would prefer not to see those posts. I think this would be a killer feature that would allow us to have custom tailored feeds. Thanks for the great work on an awesome app.

Love the app, lots of bugs.

Update: syncing seems to be horribly unreliable. Background syncing doesn't work at all and I have to pull up refresh every time. Syncing is often slow with Feedly so I may try some other RSS back end to use. R3 never had these issues though. Hoping updates take care of the numerous bugs in the app, but very happy to see R4 up and running. It's beautiful and makes keeping up with my RSS feed a joy.

Background refresh

Dropping 1 star due to background refresh issue that still hasn't been addressed. What’s the ETA on this?

The Gold Standard

5
I’m not sure why others are critical of this app, because Reeder 4 is a more refined and polished version of Reeder 3. For me, the app has been stable and now downloads articles faster and more consistently. The new features are also great. Is it my imagination or do the animations and swipe gestures feel more fluid and polished? It’s rendering and display of articles is truly improved and cleaner—it’s just beautifully simple. I’ve tried so many others, but if you are a serious reader who appreciates an app that gets out of the way to allow you to focus on content, this is the gold standard. And, thankfully, it’s a one time purchase instead of a subscription.

Solid Foundation, Lots of Hiccups

2
- awesome new design - easy way to support the developer - tolerance for swipe gestures isn't the same, and the weight feels "off" - extra text added to links copied from the app👎 - top header now takes up more space in articles - doesn't auto-refresh on open like Reeder 3 if refresh is set to "background." Verdict: wait and see if it's updated to fix some of these issues.
