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).

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.

iCloud feeds are great, still some UI wierdness

I love the new iCloud feed feature. It's allowed me to leave Feedly and that alone has made this upgrade worth it.

I was hoping this version would fix the dimmed/semi-transparent image previews in the side bar article list, but no such luck. If the previews dimmed *after* reading an article, it would make the app that much more usable.

This version also doesn't appear to have icon customization built into the app, which is unfortunate since the new cloud icon is dreadful.

iCloud Sync is the killer new feature

Reeder is one of the classic RSS readers for Apple’s platforms. I love the beautiful clean design that focuses on the content you want to read.

Until recently, you needed to subscribe to a 3rd-party service to have your RSS feeds be synced across devices. With the addition of iCloud sync, you now get that for free, under your own control and, in my experience, faster than the 3rd-party services. This is a killer new feature.

The first widely-used RSS reader to do this was News Explorer. Comparing the two, Reeder has a ways to go. Unlike News Explorer, updates made on one platform in Reeder do not sync instantly with other platforms. And when I marked all of my articles read on my Mac, after the initial import, this did not sync with my phone until I manually synced the feeds again on the Mac.

News Explorer offers another key feature, which is the ability to follow Twitter feeds as well as RSS feeds. This lets me follow people without diving into the toxic waste pool of Twitter itself. I sorely miss this feature in Reeder and am looking for other ways to get Twitter content into Reeder.

However, the design and presentation of articles in Reeder is more attractive, and it has far fewer, and far-less-confusing settings, while still being customizable in the areas that I care about. I like what I’ve seen so far, and I’m happy to give it a try as my main RSS reader.

Best RSS reader easily.

I loved Reeder 3, and used it a ton. When Apple News was released I started using it more because I was discovering new content through it, but I realized I wasn't as happy with it. The algorithms were hitting me with tons of politics that was starting to become invasive. When I saw Reeder 5 was released, I remembered how much happier I was when I was controlling my news and following more things that give me joy.

iCloud sync is also a game changer for Reeder. Having to use another RSS reader service and then sync it worked, but always felt a little forced. Finally with Reeder having its own iCloud service it feels like a proper first class citizen RSS reader. I definitely recommend getting it and the accompaning iOS app. On macOS Big Sur and iOS 14 the apps work beautifully!
