Reeder 5.0.3 MAS macOS

Keep control of your news reading with Reeder, RSS reader and read later client in one app, now with support for iCloud syncing.

Sync all your feeds and articles with iCloud. Reeder 5 comes with a built-in RSS/Feeds service which will keep everything in sync on all your devices. Of course, this is optional. You can still just use one of the many third-party services supported by Reeder or just RSS (without sync).

Reeder 4 Mac

This is Reeder’s built-in read later service which stores all your data securely in iCloud. A sharing extension allows you to add links from outside of Reeder.


A higher dimension of reading. With Bionic Reading you read texts with more focus, awareness, and sustainability. Read more about Bionic Reading at

With version 5, Reeder finally supports marking items as read while scrolling. Off by default, this can be enabled on a per-account basis.

Enter Reader View (for feed items and read later links that support this) for a clutter-free reading experience directly in Reeder’s article viewer. You can enable “Automatic Reader View” on a per-feed basis to always load items of a feed with Reader View.

Reeder 4 for iOS is a one-time purchase of $4.99 and Reeder 4 for Mac is $9.99 on the Mac App Store. It requires iOS 12, or macOS 10.14 or later. It requires iOS 12, or macOS 10.14 or later. Reeder 5 has been released for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. It brings new features like the ability to mark items as read when scrolling, a new interface, and more. Users can now sync their RSS feeds via iCloud as well. Reeder is my go-to RSS app of choice and it received an update over the weekend that.

  • Article viewer layout
  • Faster list entry swipe action animation
  • Feeds list sorting
  • Sync/refresh performance when using the Feeds (iCloud or Local) service


With Leaf that I used, and now Reeder 3 (both through Feedly) I read full articles in text format inside the RSS reader. There was an option I think (or some blog may) 'cripple' the RSS output to force you to browse the website. Reeder 3.0 is still a Google Reader client, made for Google Reader users. In version 3.0, the app gains support for Shaun Inman’s Fever, a web-based RSS reading application, and improved syncing with Readability, the free read-later service. I have been testing Reeder 3.0 for the past months, and below I’ll focus on my experience with using. An in-app Read Later service which syncs with iCloud - Image previews in the articles list (finally) - An image viewer - Much improved article viewer - More layout options, including automatic layout depending on window size - Improved reader view. Navigate the app using gestures for a great reading experience. Customize shortcuts.

  • Various RSS parsing issues (for a few feeds)
  • Potential crash on start
  • Missing “Download Video” in context menu (if supported by the embedded video)

Mac App Store:
Compatibility: macOS 10.14 or later 64 bit


The best feed reader, but there’s still room for improvement

Reeder is the best way I’ve found to read and manage RSS services like Feedly. It also works great as a client for read-later services like Instapaper. (It might be the only desktop Instapaper client, as far as I know.) The app is full of features, but also very intuitively designed, meaning you won’t have to dig into settings if your demands are pretty simple and you just want to start reading. Reeder also looks great. There are lots of included themes, and they make good use of native macOS flourishes like transparency.But, even without much in the way of competition, there are still features I’d love to see. It’s possible to use the built-in Mercury Reader service to reformat feed text in a way that’s pretty similar to Safari’s Reader View, but there isn’t a way to do this in Reeder’s built-in browser. And while Reeder has a pretty comprehensive “Services” menu with plenty of ways to share/export websites and feed text, there’s no way to add your own. There are a number of bookmarklets (like “Kill Sticky”) that I’d add in a heartbeat.This developer deserves your support. And, with that support, I hope the app continues to improve.
