“The Best RSS Reader for iPad”
— The Sweet Setup

“The tablet version brings the same great gesture-based controls and clean design that Unread users are used to, but the reading experience is even better.”
— Stephen Hackett

Focus on the act of reading with Unread’s full-screen article view. Articles are typeset in beautiful fonts from Hoefler & Co. Let nothing stand between you and the words of your favorite writers.

For truncated RSS feeds, or linked list items, quickly load the full text of articles into Unread’s beautiful readability view.

Move anywhere in the app with a sweep of your thumb, without having to reposition your hand. Unread’s stacked navigation was built from scratch to be the most comfortable interface you’ve ever used. Flick left-to-right to go back from anywhere on the screen. Tug any screen right-to-left to show options for that screen.

Like to read in bed? Don’t wake your partner with glaring white light. Unread has multiple themes designed to make it easy to read under any lighting conditions. (Requires a single in-app purchase)

Take advantage of the power of iOS 8 extensions to send text, images, and links to other apps on your iPad.

Customer Reviews

Have to purchase it twice for iPhone and iPad

Out of all the RSS apps out there, only two really stand out: Reeder and Unread. Unfortunately, while Unread is a fantastic app, the fact that I have to purchase an unlock twice for each of my devices (iPhone and iPad) is just unacceptable. Plus, it looks like they haven't updated it since September 2016. Not exactly promising. I'd rather use an app that is more frequently updated. :(

No Split View Support

This is a fine app, insofar as it does the job and is almost fully functional. I would give this at least 2 more stars if it had proper support for iPad split view or slide over modes. Maybe another star if it had proper iPad Pro 12.9" resolution support. Sadly, it seems that this app is abandoned.

Non-universal App

This app requires you to purchase it twice to be able to use in on iPad. I've already purchased it for iPhone thinking that I'll be able to use it on my iPad as well.
