The GUI is outstanding, but I have written this developer on several occasions to determine whether Reeder will be released in final form as a MAS only with no response. This is important as MAS is currently not an option for me. I have deleted Reeder as I do not wish to keep using an app they might potentially be unavailable to me and therefor waste my time (too bad, as I like Reeder a lot). There seems to be a trend here at MU where some developers are putting their betas out to pubic via MU, but then release as MAS only. Essentially, they are using MU the way people appear to be using Best Buy: go to Best Buy and see whether you like a product; go home and order it from Amazon. MU becomes free PR for MAS developers.

Almost perfect app! Unfortunately since "upgrading" to Mojave, I can't use the "add to reading list" feature which is a real shame. Hope the developer resolves this in the next update.

Wish I could rate Reeder higher, but Silvio Rizzi’s lack of interest in even responding to his customers really lets him down. Silvio seems to have taken a leaf out of David Watanabe’s book, a developer of the previously well loved RSS reader, NewsFire, what is it about RSS developers…? Breezing through a huge list of news feeds is simple, it’s all made easy thanks to the keyboard shortcuts. The built in web scraper is great. But then the built in WebKit view is terrible. Reeder has obviously had a lot of love in the past, but now it feels neglected, like Silvio has gotten bored of the project and quietly moved on. The best thing would be for the developer to sell Reeder on to someone who will polish up the great application he’s already made. Please, Silvio, do it for us!

Fast and efficient, the developper has published a new version of Reeder that replaces the deprecated Readability with another parser. He would certainly have avoided my profound disappointment and the my scathing review here below by pushing this update just a few days earlier and before the end of Readability's parser. Yes, a developper is just a human being after all, but my previous experiences with Rizzi's entirely inexistant customer relationship has exhausted my trust a long time ago…

Longtime user of the product, which I really like all in all. Like others though I've been deeply frustrated by Silvio Rizzi's complete disinterest in his customers. Now, despite Readability's announcement that they would shut down their service 6 months ago, Reeder still relies on it for its "reading" view; Readability's team was even good enough to link to an alternative. Your mileage may vary, of course, but for me that's the core feature of an RSS reader. So, well, if you want to be sure to have a product whose features don't disappear, and a developer polite enough to consider your requests worth an answer, I would recommend you just move on.

Apparently impossible to edit a previous review - I guess it's a feature and not a bug, so will write a correction above.

Brilliant app but the developer simply DOES NOT reply to any of my questions. I've been sending emails to and I continue to be ignored. NOT GOOD SERVICE!!

Save your money and use the free and better Vienna, which is becoming a more excellent tool with each release.

You gave a star and a half just because you are a Vienna user so in the end you don`t offer any other argument. O... Vienna it`s free. That`s why it looks medieval. Don`t get me wrong I used to use it for several years till I couldn`t stand anymore its ugly face. You know what`s the difference?
Of course you can read the news seated on you water throne, but it is way much nicer laid on the garden. 9 buks it`s a fair price for what you get. Reader is a functional, pretty snappy and nice rss reader, and it works better then many others.
