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.

Good app, can’t change font size

This is a good app, and its full-text fetching feature is wonderful. But I’m astounded that you can’t change the font size. This may be the only reading app of any kind that I’ve ever used that has deliberately removed this essential, basic feature. The FAQ states that it can’t support both system-wide font scaling and in-app at the same time—but this seems like madness to me. Reading an email or a text message within a busy interface is not an analagous experience to reading a long article. And removing this feature guarantees that a percentage of customers will be permanently dissatisfied. Literally the first line of the app description should be CANNOT CHANGE FONT SIZE.

Massively slow. Full text retrieval fails.

Whatever lire does to obtain, extract, and format full text is wildly broken after the last update. So slow the app is unusable. Opening articles in Safari is much, much faster.

Update: Latest release claims new full text retrieval engine. Complete failure. I have turned off all caching. Every attempt to retrieve full text for a single article times out.
