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.

Best RSS reader

I have been using all kinds of RSS readers since the early days of NetNewWire, none of the apps is as good as libre. All RSS apps are good in respects, bad in some respects, none is really perfect, but I think lire has all the good features that I am looking for such as simplicity of the user interface, fast, disply full text (which I think is the best RSS feature).

Excellent Developer Support

I have been using the iOS version for awhile and was happy to see that the same interface carries over to MacOS. I have been experiencing a sproradic crash and have been working with the developer and the response has been EXCELLENT to resolve the issue. I can now retire my previous RSS reader.

Works Great

Had no problems signing into Feedly. This was one of my favorite apps on iOS so I'm glad to see the Mac version available. After fever rss going away this seems to be the only app to do hot links properly.
