Reeder 5 adds Home screen widgets, new RSS feed syncing features and more

Reeder 5 by Italian developer Silvio Rizzi is one of the most popular RSS apps on the iPhone, iPad and Mac, and now it’s gotten even better with a major new release.

Reeder 5, which is a new purchase both iOS and macOS, makes it easy to keep tabs on your news with an RSS reader and read-later client combined into a single app. And now, it features iCloud syncing for keeping your favorite RSS feeds and articles in sync across devices.

If you’d rather use one of the many third-party services supported by Reeder, you can do that as well: Feedbin, Feedly, Feed Wrangler, FeedHQ, NewsBlur, The Old Reader, Inoreader, BazQux Reader, FreshRSS, Instapaper and Pocket. The integrated read-later service keeps all your data securely in iCloud and a sharing extension lets you add links from outside of Reeder.

In line with the iOS 14 widgets trend, Reeder now offers a widget for your Home screen. With it, you can view the most recent articles. The widget is available in multiple sizes and can be adjusted to only show items from feeds, folders, searches or tags. Also new is a mark-as-read-on-scroll option that will mark items as read while you scroll past them. This feature is disabled by default and can be enabled on a per-account basis.
