Love RSS feeds? So do we!!

RSS feeds are a great way to follow updates on your favorite website. However, some sites set up their feeds to only show a portion of each entry, you know, to get you to click through to their actual website. We find that really annoying, and we're sure you do too.

Which is why, unlike other RSS feed readers, that either push you into a browser (in-app or otherwise), or depend on third party text parsing services and require you to be online to fetch the full text of one article at a time (which makes it no different from having to click/tap through to a website), in lire, you get your favorite RSS feeds as they should've been. You don't need to click through to any website (though, you do still have the option to, if you really wanted). It takes your favorite partial feeds, does it's magic, and converts them in to full feeds, so you don't have to click/tap on those annoying 'Read more' or 'Continue reading' links.

Once they're cached, you don't even need to be connected to read your full-text feeds.

Use as a standalone feed reader,

or,

sync with any of the several services: Feedly, Feedbin, FeedHQ, The Old Reader, Inoreader, BazQux Reader, Newsblur, Feed Wrangler.

The Perfect RSS Reader, better than all others

RobLee 22

I have tried loads of RSS Readers on IOS, Feedly (inc Pro) Reeder 3, Unread etc. but Lire has the perfect interface:
1. FULL article downloaded,so no need to click through.
2. Rapid swiping to the next article when reading without having to get to the end of every article
3. Format the reading view with the font, spacing, margins so it's just how I like to read.
4. Instant Dark/Light colour change, with twist gesture
5. Background fetch so it's up to date and ready to go whenever I want to read.
6. Supports the major RSS Providers

Just what I wanted.

A beautiful way to browse RSS

Feels right at home on iOS. Fully featured and simple to use. Regularly updated too.

Nice app

But UI leaves some room for improvement.
