My “Daily Driver” for news and information


It does a job - parsing diverse news feeds and making them easily readable (not an easy job, considering many sites don’t actually want you reading their stuff from an adless feed).

It’s a plain interface. It shows you what’s read and what’s not. It saves the articles you want saved. It even uses a service that can help you grab articles from sites that don’t publish the whole text in their feeds. (It will also interface with social/saving services, but that’s secondary to me.)

Other readers either try to get too fancy or don’t do those basics properly. That’s why I love Reeder and have paid for it something like 5 times over since version 1. As long as it works for those basics, I’ll gladly pay for future upgrades as well.

Buggy and unreliable


This is one of the buggiest Mac apps I have ever used. Preferences aren’t remembered, custom feed names aren’t saved, phantom accounts appear no matter how many times I delete them, OPML imports/exports have issues, and the app crashes once or twice a day in the background for no apparent reason.

This morning Reeder crashed every time I tried to edit any subscription. I tried deleting and recreating my account, uninstalling and reinstalling the app, removing every trace of Reeder from all /Library and ~/Library folders, and even rebooting my Mac a few times. Nothing helped. In a last ditch effort I tried importing an older OPML file I had saved and the crashes finally stopped until I tried adding a subscription with an ampersand in the name. And now the app crashes again whenever I try to edit any subscription. I give up.

This is amateur hour. Much more effort would have to be put into fixing bugs before I could recommend it to anyone. I submitted a few bug reports before reading that the developer has been unresponsive to emails for years so I’m not going to bother anymore.

The iOS version of Reeder is decent despite a few bugs and quirks. The Mac version, however, was a waste of money. Other Mac RSS reader recommendations are welcome.

Really great app; just needs a few tweaks

After much searching, I’ve settled on Reeder as the best RSS reader for me. It is attractive, flexible, and feature-rich, and I use it every day.

There are a few things that keep this from being 5 stars for me: the way to structure and search your feeds could be more intuitive; after every update I have to swap out the ugly Soviet-looking icon for something I can stand looking at; I wish for more options for the interface; etc. But overall this is the best compromise of usability, features, and attractiveness I’ve found in a newsreader—highly recommended.
