Reeder overview

Reader is a news reader for the Mac with support for various sync services.

Reeder 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)
  • An image viewer
  • Much improved article viewer
  • More layout options, including automatic layout depending on window size
  • Improved reader view

Navigate the app using gestures for a great reading experience. Customize shortcuts and gestures to fine-tune the app to your needs.

Supported sync services:
  • Feedbin
  • Feedly
  • Feed Wrangler
  • FeedHQ
  • NewsBlur
  • The Old Reader
  • Inoreader
  • BazQux Reader
  • Instapaper
  • Pocket

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.

What’s new in version 5.4

New:
  • Mastodon RSS feeds are now displayed like Twitter feeds. (Note: only for new items, this is not applied to existing items in Reeder.)
Improved:
  • Mastodon RSS feed lookup (iCloud Feeds and Local/RSS)
  • "Reader View" for recipes
  • Feed discovery when subscribing
  • iCloud Feeds sync performance
Fixed:
  • Overlapping text in article viewer
  • Missing images in Reader View for certain sites
  • Potential crash/freeze when signing in to Reddit/Twitter

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…
