“Unread, now developed by Golden Hill Software, is one of the more elegant options based on comfortable gestures and a focused reading experience.”
–Federico Viticci, MacStories

“Unread’s new functionality maintains its support for the latest RSS features, but ensures a pleasant reading experience remains at the forefront of its priorities.”
–Josh Ginter, The Sweet Setup

“Unread is one of my favorite reading apps on iOS.”
–Preshit Deorukhkar, Beautiful Pixels

“All told, Unread 2’s trackpad and cursor support has naturally morphed from the app’s still-great swiping-only navigational system, and, at least in my world, has made Unread as good a desktop RSS processor as it was a comfortable RSS reading app.”
— Josh Ginter, The Sweet Setup

What’s New

Version 2.5.1

Last week I released an update that significantly expanded the free tier and added a variety of other improvements. This update contains these bug fixes:

• Last week’s improvements around formatting tweets in articles from Substack feeds did not work when syncing with a NewsBlur account. This update fixes that.
• This update fixes a bug that prevented the Priority Sources setting on medium and large Unread Counts widgets from working as expected under some circumstances.

Bester Feedreader

Ernsthaft, neben Spotify ist Unread die App die ich jeden Tag am meisten verwende. Unread macht verdammt viel richtig und fühlt sich insgesamt sehr gut an. Ich bezahle gern das Abo, auch zusätzlich zur Jahresgebühr von Feedbin, weil Unread einen tollen Lesefluss ermöglicht.

Fantastic App

Very beautiful, opinionated design.

I really enjoy the automated full article view (no truncated feeds anymore).

Subscription priced fairly.

Great support: I reported a rendering bug concerning a particular RSS feed and the developer applied a server-side fix in less than 24 hours!

Feedreader mit bestem UI aber Abo ist unverschämt

Allein für einen Feedreader ein Abo abzuschließen käme für mich nie in Frage. Denn für die eigentliche Leistung, das bereitstellen des Contents, zahle ich ja schon bei Diensten wie Feedly oder Feedwrangler.
Einmal im Jahr für eine neue Version bezahlen, wenn es denn substanzielle Änderungen gäbe, wäre ok. So verzichte ich lieber und nutze die App von Feedly.
