A news reader for the Mac with support for various sync services.
Reeder 4 adds new features like…
- The new Bionic Reading mode
- An in-app Read Later service which syncs with iCloud
- Image previews in the articles list (finally)
- An image viewer
- Much improved article viewer
- More layout options, including automatic layout depending on window size
- Automatic reader view
Navigate the app using gestures for a great reading experience. Customize shortcuts and gestures to fine-tune the app to your needs.
Supported sync services:

If you want to use a self-hosted service, Reeder should work with services which use the Fever or the Google Reader API. Or just standalone RSS (without syncing) if you don't want to use any service.
Reeder 4 is also available for iOS.
- Reader View sometimes not working when it should
- Random crashes. Not sure if it's completely fixed as I wasn’t able to reproduce this. Please continue submitting crash reports if you’re still experiencing crashes.

Lacks Custom Font Choice
Overall this is a great upgrade and puts Reeder 4 back at the top of the RSS reader game. However, the removal of the ability to select custom typefaces as the reader font is a regression.
Now you're limited to the same set of typefaces as Safari's built-in Reader mode. I mean, they're great typefaces, but I've grown accustomed to reading Univers. I get that it's a cross-platform compatibility thing (iOS only allows that same set of fonts), but you don't have to sacrifice user customization where the user clearly has that choice.
I'm forced to stick with Reeder 3 and its broken Dark Mode adaptation.
Unpopular opinion: This is a downgrade.
After buying this for $9.99 I instantly had buyer's remorse. Although it's wonderful to see this developer continue to work on Reeder, and the new featre-set is awesome, and the subtle animations are cool —I really dislike the aesthetic changes overall.
For one, the neutral-themed theme is gone (so you're stuck with all-white or all-black if you don't like the multi-colored options). You also can no longer select any system font but are limited to San Francisco as your only sans-serif. The new icon's smaller "count" font is kind of tiny. The new views are really janky and unpolished, and almost contradict each other in their design.
But for $9.99… I was hoping this would be more put-together.
Very nice. I can finally enjoy my InoReader feeds.
I've truly "tried them all" and this release hits all the buttons for me. So intuitive, easy to use, and practically every preference you could want.
But there is ONE preference I want. For the article image previews (which I love), the user can only choose between small, medium or large.
Large is too big and medium is too small (at least for my liking). I'd love to see a slider allowing the user to choose any size between small and large, as well as an option to place the image on the left or the right.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
