Long-awaited Reeder 3.0 update now available in App Store

After nearly 9 months of waiting, the highly-anticipated update to Reeder, arguably the most popular Google Reader client around, is finally here. The update brings the application to version 3.0.

The major revision includes a subtle UI redesign and a laundry list of new, and much-needed, features like feed management and multi-account support. Keep reading for a full list of the changes…

  • Fever syncing
  • Much improved Readability syncing
  • Multi-Account support (for Google Reader and Fever)
  • In-app settings
  • Subscribe and unsubscribe (Google Reader only)
  • Text size and line height options in the article viewer
  • QUOTE.fm sharing
  • Buffer sharing
  • Swipe right/left to toggle unread/starred (configurable for both directions)
  • Two-finger swipe up/down to mark as read above/below
  • Swipe right to go back to article list
  • Swipe left to open in-app browser
  • Pinch-to-zoom for images
  • Pinch to toggle Readability

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, this is a major update. The entire app was rewritten from the ground up, and the developer, Silvio Rizzi, couldn’t have done a better job. This is about as good as it gets for Google Reader clients.

I honestly felt the ability to subscribe and unsubscribe to new feeds in-app alone was worth the upgrade, but if you still need more convincing, our friend Federico Viticci over at MacStories has put together a much more comprehensive review.

If you’re looking to checkout Reeder for yourself, you can find it in the App Store for $2.99.
