Legi is a powerful RSS Feed Reader with speech output, "smart playlists", fulltext reader mode, offline mode etc. for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
A RSS Feed reader lets you read blog articles, magazines and news sites much easier and much more comfortable than with a normal web browser. The App lets you subscribe and organize your news feeds, which will be updated fully automatically, so you always have the latest news available within the App. All articles will presented for a comfortable reading experience, but of course the original web view is also available.
Legi is special among RSS readers, because it has a speech output feature. This means the App can read all articles aloud when you can not read these yourself, for example when driving a car, while doing sports and for many other activities where you can't look on your device. The App has a full-featured audio player for the speech output (Play/Pause, skip back/forward, a timeline etc.) which works similar to the one of a music player App. Of course, all remote controls for music (the one from the control center, headphones, or Apple Watch) will work for Legi as well, so Legi can be in the Background as well.
The full text of all articles will be presented in a comfortable reading mode, for which you can configure colors, fonts, text size etc. to match your own requirements.
An offline mode makes it possible to read all articles even if no internet connection is available. In addition the App lets you configure when and under which conditions the data is loaded, so you can load most or all of the data using WiFi and less or no data in mobile networks to avoid traffic.
You can also create "smart playlists" to categorize and organize articles independently of the feeds.
Several 3rd-party services to manage your feeds are supported as well:
- Feed HQ, FeedBlur
- The Old Reader
Also feeds can be saved as favorites, you can export or import your feeds via OPML, you can share articles using the ShareSheet and much more.
- Support for new devices (iPhone XS, XS Max, XR, iPad Pro)
- Reading mode: The text alignment can be configured
- New option in the settings to show/hide the icon in the articles list (to get more space for title and description).
- Better detection of important text on web sites for the reader mode
- Fixes a crash when adding a feed using the browser if there’s no title for the feed available.
- several bugfixes and improvements
Ratings and Reviews
The audio is a unique and useful feature.
Search is helpful as well.
I’d like to see an option for removing the icon by the title to allow for more of the title to appear.
I would also like to see landscape mode.
This app could turn out to be one of the best rss feeders for those of us that don’t use feed services.
