Reeder 3 now available in the Mac App Store

Reeder 3

Reeder, Silvio Rizzi’s well-regarded RSS feed reading app, just received a major update for Mac, and is now available for purchase on the Mac App Store.

Reeder, which first made waves on iOS, has been a Mac App Store staple for quite some time now.┬áThe latest version, Reeder 3, is priced at $9.99, but it’s a free update for Reeder 2 users.

I’ve been testing out Reeder 3 in beta for a few months, and I can assure you that it lives up to the hype. If you’re still into RSS feeds in 2015, then there is perhaps no better app for the task┬áthan Reeder 3.

Reeder 3 for Mac

Reeder 3 for Mac supports the following services:

  • Feedbin
  • Feedly
  • Feed Wrangler
  • FeedHQ
  • NewsBlur
  • The Old Reader
  • Inoreader
  • Minimal Reader
  • BazQux Reader
  • Fever
  • Readability
  • Instapaper

Here’s what’s new in version 3.0:

  • Updated for OS X El Capitan
  • Additional themes
  • Updated UI to more closely match OS X Yosemite/El Capitan design language
  • Support for sharing extensions
  • Unread/starred counts for smart folders
  • Hide smart folders if no unread items
  • Private browsing support
  • Fullscreen view in minimized layout
  • Pull to next and preview article

Additionally, Reeder 3 uses Apple’s new San Francisco font found prominently in OS X El Capitan and iOS 9. It also plays nice with OS X El Capitan’s new Split View mode, which allows you to easily use two apps side by side at the same time.

In the past, I’ve given Silvio Rizzi a hard time for making updates hard to come by, but when he does push an update, it’s usually well worth it and fairly significant. Reeder 3 is more than just a fresh coat of paint, it’s a better app all the way around than its predecessors. I find that it’s more stable as well.

Obviously, if you’re not big on RSS feeds, then Reeder 3 won’t be of much use to you. However, if you’re still a big fan of RSS feeds like I am, then I doubt you’ll regret picking up Reeder 3.

Yes, you can alway use Safari to view feeds, but I find that the experience is much more suited for a native app. Reeder 3 answers the call better than any other feed reading app I’ve seen on Mac.

Again, you can pick it up for $9.99 on the Mac App Store.
