Feeddler RSS Reader for iOS Review


Type of app: RSS Reader/News Aggregator
Platform/where to buy: iPad and iPhone (universal app); available in the App Store
Developer: C.B. Liu

Feeddler is a fast and highly customizable Google Reader client that stays perfectly synced with Google and presents RSS stories in an easy-to-read interface.

Major features: Feeddler is great if you want a fast and simple RSS reader. You don’t get flashy Flipboard or Pulse style navigation, but you get all your news in one place with a clean user interface. It also offers a whole slew of options to share news via social media or push it to Read it Later and similar services. Plus, just like Google Reader on the web, you can star items, mark them as unread, and have all your news organized into categories.

Ease of use/Overall performance: If you know how to use Google Reader on the web you can use Feeddler. The interfaces are very similar. I actually prefer Feeddler, since it has a handy “full text” mode that pulls the whole article through Instapaper and into Feeddler. I can fly through my morning headlines skimming in half the time using this app! It is installed on my iPad and my iPhone, and I can’t survive without it. This makes staying on top of 100+ websites in various categories a breeze!

Would use again/recommend?: Absolutely! I tell everyone if you only use one RSS Reader that Feeddler is a great choice.

Suggested changes/wish list for updates: None, this app is perfect.

Price: Free with ads or $4.99 for ad-free (both versions are universal).

They love writing about ebooks because they combine their two favorite activities; reading anything and everything, and talking about fun new tech toys. What could be better?
