The one to get
Out of the many rss readers out there, Mr. Reader is the best by a wide margin (and I've tried them all). I use Mr. Reader 2X/day as a front-end for Feedly, and it allows me to efficiently plow through several dozen feeds, saving important bits directly to my Evernote account. Not only does it integrate with other services and products, but it is very flexible. You can configure it to work in your preferred method (easy hand-off to either Safari or Chrome). And, when you run into a snag (i.e. iPad Pro support), the developer is very responsive - he had an update for us in less than a week. Mr. Reader prominently sits on the bottom bar of my iPad Air 2 and is one of my go-to apps. It will be in the same spot on my new iPad Pro.
Oh wow wow wow
What a difference. Here I am now feeling punished for using Reeder as there were no better alternatives! Mr. Reader far surpassed my expectations. This app is feature packed, you can manage your subscriptions directly which was a huge pain point for me in Reeder. Even has the ability to change the font size in this app feels amazing. Comes to show how much I have been forced in the dark until I bought this app. If you have doubts between Mr. Reader vs Reeder, forget it, just buy this one and save yourself the trouble.
Excellent RSS Reader...
...and will support several of the new backend services when Google Reader shuts down.
I'm delighted I'll be able to keep using it!
Update: it has been working wonderfully since the google reader shutdown.
Update late 2014. This app is still excellent, and is regularly updated and strengthened further! It is my most used app by a wide margin, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a way to keep track of news and blogs.
Still the best, and just keeps improving!
This makes it fast and efficient to keep track of news, blogs, and information on a wide variety of topics. It _makes_ the iPad for me.
