Runeko's Review of Reeder 3

Reviewed on 8/7/18 4:32 PM

I was a big believer in this app. I remember when google dropped their support of google reader, I was sad; then I found Feedly. Feedly was ok, and it got the job done, but was not really a pleasant experience. Then I found Reeder; I was so excited. I remember when Reeder was amazing, fresh, and just what I thought the RSS experience on an iPhone should be. When Reeder was updated to Version 3, I jumped in. Now, it’s old and clunky. The UI Design feels ancient and I don’t know that it’s worth the money I payed for it anymore. I only use it because I haven’t found anything better. If you find something that works for you, go for it. This app hasn’t been updated in 8 months. I can only imagine there’s going to be a new version for which I’ll have to spend $40 to update all my devices. Very disappointing.

Best news reader, great support team

Reeder has always been my go-to news reader (iOS and macOS). Developer was pretty awesome and receptive to feedback like incorporating keyboard support.

Chinese languages please.

Once upon a time, this app was 5 stars...

8 bit snow's Review of Reeder 3

Reviewed on 7/13/18 8:38 PM

But then the dev stopped updating it, and issue creep set in. Just had to have my iPhone replace and can’t figure out how to add back my multiple feedly accounts. I keep trying to update password, but it tells me the one that successfully logged in is already logged in. Ugh. So irritating. To the dev, I say, if you need more money, I’ll be happy to drop it if you put out version 4! I’ve enjoyed using your apps over the years and thank you for your efforts and updates. I’m also an iOS dev. And I get that things happen. New job or family additions. It’s all good, but if you no longer plan to support this app. I/we need to know so can commit to another app going forward. Meanwhile, for those of you looking for a replacement... Fiery Feeds seems promising!

Excellent RSS reader

Still going strong. Some minor improvements would be nice (such as expiring old unread items from certain noisy feeds) but overall this is one of my most used apps.

Rarely updated

Bythenessy's Review of Reeder 3

I have been using Reeder for years, and in the past I would have considered it a 5 star app, but it is rarely updated by its author, and the current version has some display problems on my 12” iPad Pro. It also is frustrating that while Apple has iCloud for syncing across platforms, Reeder requires that you use a 3rd party service that can cost $19-$60 per year. I would much rather trust Apple with my data than some 3rd party startup that not only will charge me, but will also likely have less respect for my privacy.

Used to be the best app on my phone. Now it’s borderline unusable. Crashes every time I use it. Not sure how the mighty have fallen so hard.

Dev's gone AWOL

And it shows. Sad.

Pretty much abandoned

Great app design but the developer has seemingly abandoned the app. Would not recommend purchasing the app at this time. Adding an article to Reading List causes the app to crash on a regular basis.

No support. No instructions. Useless. Avoid!

For an expensive app like this whose desktop version works well, I expected functionality and support. I found neither. Avoid this app!
