Highly customizable - Almost every aspect of Fiery Feeds is customisable. Color Themes, Fonts, Text sizes. If you want a leisurely reading environment, just the headlines, or anything in between, Fiery Feeds has you covered.
Horizontal article swiping - You can swipe to the next or previous article by swiping horizontally, instead of vertically. This avoids having to scroll down the entire (long) article just to get to the next one.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Original review: Please include an option to disable "updating hotlinks"! It takes FOREVER for my Feedly subscription and it's a premium feature that I don't even use. Rest of app is fairly good although the parallax effect on the article list images is a little disconcerting when scrolling.
Edits: After the author responded to let me know how to sort out the two abovementioned issues, the app is now very quick to start, article list scrolling looks better (to me, anyway) and I have added another star to the review. Updating cached images could be a bit faster though, maybe multithread the retrieval? Anyway. Great program, enjoying it so far. I'll hold back the last star due to the subscription model - this sort of thing is stupid for a feed reader, or a text editor or pretty much 90% of other apps. Make it a one-time payment to get premium and you might get that one last star. (I don't care what Apple "encourages" app authors to do - Apple has wayyyy enough money right now.)
Developer Response ,
You can disable the Hotlinks folder in the account settings. Fiery Feeds will skip the Updating Hotlinks phase if the folder is hidden.
There is also a (semi-public) Expert Settings screen. You can open it by tapping and holding the settings icon. There you can find an option to disable the parallax scrolling.
Most responsive developer I've worked with + best RSS app
I am deeply enjoying reading my feeds with Fiery. This is not just because of the excellent design, or the frequent updates, but also, crucially, because of how responsive the developer is. Several times I've sent mails and gotten a response within a day or less. If you manage a lot of feeds, you will want to look at Fiery. I've requested obscure features that have made their way into a release a week or two later, and this present release adds some features I'd not even gotten round to requesting yet.
This is how you do software. Thank you for being such a wonderful example of how it's done.
But I’m starting over from scratch
I was hoping to start over with RSS feed readers, since I have not had a feed reader since my Google Reader days. I have no feed accounts anywhere. Not with Feedly or any other of the newer RSS feed readers. Therefore, I was entirely unable to sign in. I’m glad I didn’t just jump right in and buy a premium account that I would’ve been unable to use.
Your product seems to have no use cases for a person who is entirely new to RSS feed readers. This is not the way to attract new people to your product.
I would be thrilled to try your product again if you add some way of authenticating outside of some other feed reader service. I would even be willing to sign in via Google. Please provide this basic functionality and I would be delighted to revise this review. Oh, and my husband, a Feedly subscriber, would also be delighted to try your product.
Developer Response ,
I'm happy to say that version 2.2 that has just been released supports completely local accounts that are not tied to any service (for both RSS and saving articles for later), as well as synchronisation through iCloud if you do want to keep the articles in sync on multiple devices, but without creating an additional account with a third party service like Instapaper.
