Worth the Upgrade From 4

Been holding out a good while, but figured I’d go ahead and upgrade with the new year. Being able to move from 3rd party
(Feedly) and have feeds sync’d via iCloud is fantastic.

Doesn’t do a great job of handling Instagram embeds in either default or Reeder view, hope that gets fixed soon with an up

I do all my reading of the internet in Reeder! I’m very happy to get an upgrade with iCloud syncing where I’d prefer my data -
and support an awesome app. I also picked up the Mac version which has a beautiful Big Sur UI refresh - and so all my stuff stays
synced up!

Thank you Reader!!

Thank you so much for this app. I recently switched from Feedly and it’s such a breath of fresh air not having ads injected into
my feed and not constantly trying to be sold a subscription service. I also purchased the Mac app and it is just as fantastic.
Worth every penny, thank you!

Option for light gradient top to bottom to help Visually distinguish one article from another article in the List feed view.

Background refresh is working now

But it takes few days to get it working.
Maybe developers should mention this from the very beginning instead of letting people have to dive into the support page.

The paid upgrade from 4 to 5 was well worth it for me. Having iCloud sync track what I’ve read across devices was the feature

Great App, Very Refined, Under Priced

I’ve been using various versions of this app for years. With each new version, the developers do an amazing job making it feel
more fluid and fast with every iteration. It’s feature rich with everything you could hope for but none of the features get in
the way of simply reading. I also appreciate h

Good update

Was hesitant to pay for v5, but after doing so, I can see it’s a good update. I’m satisfied with the purchase. I hope the Mac
version gets the same update.

There is no way to save link to Pocket

There is no way to save link to Pocket, from link opened inside Pocket! But I can find the way from link opened inside Feeds.
This is not referenced to the Packet app. All inside the Reeder app.
Please consider adding the option. Thank you very much!

Reeder is just a fantastic app and by far the best rss reader you can get. All this needs is a watch app now.

issues at all buying the new version.

Longtime user - version 5 is the best

I’ve been using Reeder for 10 years now, I think. It is hands down the best RSS reeder app for the iOS and Mac. The ability in
version 5 to sync feeds via iCloud negates the need for an RSS service. So you’re going to save money.

The UI/UX is simply the best. No other app on either iOS or Android

The developer listened, changing from 3 stars to 5

Longtime satisfied user since reeder 3, was complaining about folders not able to rename thus rated this version 3 stars, 2 for
app lack of real upgrade, 1 for old time’s sake. Then the dev listened and released some functions I was requesting, now a

iCloud sync has limit of 50 unread articles

Love the app and loved the idea of syncing via iCloud instead of a 3rd party tool. However, iCloud sync only seems to pull up 50
unread articles from each source, so any high volume RSS feeds are not working so well under iCloud and I am missing a ton of
articles. Can this be fixed? For now, I’m sti

'Best RSS reader app in town'

'Reader 5 is the best RSS reader in town. Great UI, elegant setup, good customization options, you name it. The app still needs
something, though. For instance, it lacks extended integration with the Shortcuts app (exporting in markdown, please!), and the
feed sync needs to be more reactive.'

Access to subscription information is slow

Sorry, the author solves this bug. The RSS version of this version is very slow to update. It takes about one minute to update.
Icloud / local mode is very slow. It is too troublesome to use. Reeder4 version has not encountered this problem. Please modify
