Love RSS feeds? So do we!!

RSS feeds are a great way to follow updates on your favorite website. However, some sites set up their feeds to only show a portion of each entry, you know, to get you to click through to their actual website. We find that really annoying, and we're sure you do too.

Which is why, unlike other RSS feed readers, that either push you into a browser (in-app or otherwise), or depend on third party text parsing services and require you to be online to fetch the full text of one article at a time (which makes it no different from having to click/tap through to a website), in lire, you get your favorite RSS feeds as they should've been. You don't need to click through to any website (though, you do still have the option to, if you really wanted). It takes your favorite partial feeds, does it's magic, and converts them in to full feeds, so you don't have to click/tap on those annoying 'Read more' or 'Continue reading' links.

Once they're cached, you don't even need to be connected to read your full-text feeds.

Use as a standalone feed reader,


sync with any of the several services: Feedly, Feedbin, FeedHQ, The Old Reader, Inoreader, BazQux Reader, Newsblur, Feed Wrangler.

Absolutely excellent!

This is perhaps the most thorough RSS reader available. Articles can be automatically downloaded in full text, font face and size can be changed. Well worth the price!

Salute to the developer

Using Lire has been a bliss. Reminds me of the days when software had little branding or monetizing schemes but empowers you to live mindfully. Good design is as little design as possible.

Great! 🙌

A great RSS reader. The ability to cache full articles of sites that only syndicate previews is a great feature that I haven't found in any competitors. My only wish is for themes that color links different colors, and for the ability to hide the system status bar at the top when reading in full screen view. Other than that I love this app.
