A modern RSS newsreader for iPhone and iPad, with features to help you find the news you are interested in, and no creepy tracking or advertising:

- Add Home Screen widgets showing articles from your folders, feeds, topics, tags or searches.
- Discover feeds published by your favourite news website or blog using the built-in browser.
- Setup notifications to alert you when new articles appear in your feeds.
- Create rules to automatically like, read, tag, or hide certain articles.
- Filter articles by unread, today only, tag, or media type.

- Use the built-in reading list or external services, supports Pocket, Instapaper, and Safari Reading List.

What’s New

Version 3.1.6

- Group articles by date published, length, feed, author or tag.
- Caption text accompanying an image that is too long to fit in the box can be expanded by swiping upward on it.
- Image captions use a condensed font in order to fit more text.
- Improved compatibility with feeds that are encoded in a non-standard way, including when encountering malformed UTF8 encoding.
- YouTube links are no longer converted to inline videos, this caused formatting issues with some feeds so perhaps wasn't the best idea.
- Hidden articles are now also hidden in the favorites view.
- Tagged articles now display the tag color as a bar down the side of the article summary and can optionally apply a tint of the color to the whole article.

Great RSS feed reader

Really low cost subscription offering that competes in my opinion with big name rss solutions. Dev is very responsive to inquiries and makes regular updates to this product. Thank you!

Great RSS reader

Update: The app now syncs with iCloud much more reliably after recent updates.

Unique and well designed RSS reader. The dev is also extremely receptive to feedback. Great user experience overall.

I have had some trouble getting it to sync with iCloud, but I only rely on that as a backup of my feeds since I mostly read the news on one device.

You almost had me as a user

Until I realized there is no way to sort article lists from oldest to new date. Why are rss developers suddenly deciding that everyone doesn’t need this feature?? Also YouTube media don’t embed or play within the app
