Reeder 3, a news reader with support for multiple services like
- Feed Wrangler
- Minimal Reader
- The Old Reader
- BazQux 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.
What's New in Version 3.0.5
- Crash on start
- Crash while syncing
Good, but needs page zooming and ad blocking
First off, even w/ the minimal innovation Reeder is still the leader of the pack. I'm not sure what this says about the competition...
My major complaint is having to launch into the browser when the page renders with small fonts on a retina display -- if page zooming/font resizing existed I would rarely need to launch outside of Reeder. Mercury reader is great for the primary link, but sites like HackerNews have a comments link which can't be rendered with it.
Ad blocking is the other obvious missing feature. Not sure Apple makes this overly difficult or not.
My non-essential-but-would-love features:
- a Feedly-like magazine view for the index.
- when navigating between feeds, and you finish the group, highlight the next group's feed not the next group with all the feeds
Good app, zero support
I’ve used Reeder since version 1 (I’m an iOS customer as well), and it’s a very solid RSS option, but there is no customer support. I’ve reported a number of bugs over the years and haven’t seen any of them fixed, nor have I received a single reply. Not even a basic “We’ve received your message" type thing. I’m now stuck with a blank startup window bug that I reported almost a year ago — along with a cumbersome workaround — that hasn’t been fixed or acknowledged.
Thanks for the quick fixes!
I love this app and rely on it daily, so I was a bit upset about the constant crashing in version 3.0.4.
But 3.0.5 is here and I am happy to report that all issues appear to be resolved.
Great app, great work, great support.
