Description

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 its 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 iCloud,

or,

sync with any of the several services: Feedly, Feedbin, FeedHQ, The Old Reader, Inoreader, BazQux Reader, Newsblur, Feed Wrangler, FreshRSS, Miniflux, Nextcloud News, Tiny Tiny RSS.

Wow!

I am so glad I found this. It is definitely worth the $10. First, to the devs: thanks for not being a subscription. And thanks for respecting privacy.

The review: you can adjust this in seemingly EVERY way. You can have specific feeds open directly in the in-app browser, or in reader mode. So, depending on the behavior of the feed, it will remember what to do. Do you hate it when the app header scrolls away like I do? You can change that. Easily adjust font sizes. Can organize the feeds - not just one l long list. The customization that you can do goes on and on. AND - they respect your privacy.

Excellent!!!

I live in a rural area with weak cell service. When the power goes out we’re totally offline. Automatic Full-text caching is the feature that sold me on this app. Everything works well and is quick and smooth. Nice UI and intuitive controls. I also appreciate the Standalone option, lack of data collection, and no need for a subscription! Finally, having never used an RSS reader before, the developer was super quick to respond to my silly questions and explain things in a clear, concise, and courteous manner. Thank you!

Second time user

Happy to pay the second time around. By far, Lire is the best RSS reader on the market. The one that strikes the perfect balance between personalization and courageous design. Only one minor feature request I wish to see one day: a speed read tool built-in. No RSS reader has ever released this before. If anyone could ever implement anything like that without over-complicating the product, it’s Lire’s developer. Keep up the good work.
