This is a patch version for the recently released v2.2.

Good RSS reader

I have tried a whole bunch of RSS apps on the App Store and I like this app. It has its own personality, which is important. It allows a fair bit of customization. The focus on privacy is also good.

But, I won’t be using it because this is a subscription based app. I would rather pay an upfront fee to buy the app, so I would be sticking to Reeder for now and upgrading to Reeder 4 when it comes out.

Update to dev: yes a one time purchase is a vastly preferred alternative. I would be okay with using iCloud sync if that lowers your recurring costs and an upgrade every few years would be fine too.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your honest review. Would a life-time purchase be more compelling for you on contrast to a subscription model?

Update: Hi, I have updated the pricing and added a new one-time payment option as well. Do check those out.

Best Up-and-Coming RSS Reader

Looking to try a fresh, beautifully designed, and carefully optimized RSS reader? You've found it! Elytra delivers where other RSS readers fall short by offering a thoughtfully designed interface, extensive accessibility options, and reliability. On top of that, the developers behind Elytra are very tuned into user feedback, so they are constantly refining the app and adding new and useful features based on the feedback they receive. And the fact that this is a solid app that is continuing to evolve makes any investment in it worthwhile.
