Reeder 3, a news reader with support for multiple services like
- Feed Wrangler
- Minimal Reader
- The Old Reader

Don't want to use a third-party service? Reeder also supports local/standalone RSS (no sync).
- Customizable shortuts
- Safari Reading List
- QUOTE.fm Read
...and more via sharing extensions.

*** Update 1/6/17: Still crashy crashy. Quits or “Application Not Responding” more than anything else on my MacBook.
This is a good RSS app, aggressively priced, but crashes constantly. I have force quit it more than any other app on my Mac. It’s a shame there aren’t more apps of this UI polish level for RSS. But the crashing is a big issue.
iCloud Sync is what people want
Reeder 3 seems great as an app in and of itself, however it's really not that simple.
The lack of iCloud sync support for local feeds and folders is an unfortunate missed opportunity. Reeder could be the first multi-platform (macOS, iOS, tvOS, watchOS) RSS reader to market with this sought-after capability.
Other developers have implemented iCloud syncing effectively. Case in point: Downcast (the best podcast manager app on iOS, by far). No problems implementing a robust iCloud synchronization solution there with syncing for subscriptions, episodes, and more!
The fact that third party services exist is not a legitimate alternative as you cannot sync your local feeds, some charge for their “services” if you want to have more than some arbitrary number of feeds and folders/categories, and other “suggest” content or other wise remove your control over your own articles and subscriptions.
Reeder 3, it’s 2017. Get with the program and give the people what they want: the first multi-platform RSS reader to come to the App Store.
Not accesible with VoiceOver on the Mac
If you are a VoiceOver user, do not purchase this app. Most buttons are not properly labeled, and the table contents are spoken as blank by VO. I’ve reached out to the developer to offer my assistance in getting this to work, but I have not heard back. I’ll file for a refund ASAP.
