App Reviews

  • Displaying more articles

    By whiny little b****
    I have to agree with others, even on iPhone X’s crazy tall display, Unread still shows only 1 article (+tiny piece of another), which leads to much more scrolling required in order to go through all articles. Take advantage of tall displays and show more than 1 article. Feedly can display 6. So, in order to go through 60 articles on Feedly, I only have to make 10 flicks. But to go through the same 60 articles on Unread requires about 50 flicks, which makes Unread crazy inefficient. Another option that would be helpful is ability to go from article list straight to web view without needing to tap-and-hold or 3D-touch or tap-and-swipe. I just wanna be able to tap on an article in the article list and be taken straight to web view.
  • Great RSS Reader!

    I’ve been using Feedly for what seems like forever now and this is the first app that’s had me close to converting. The list of features is commendable but the one thing missing for me is a list view with thumbnails. I find it easier to quickly scroll/flip through the lists using the images as a sort of indicator for the subject of the article over reading text. Having multiple articles on each page speeds things up for me. Anyways nice work! Edit: I wasn’t very clear on the list view. I meant multiple (4-5 articles per page) with thumbnails instead of one large thumbnail and text that fills the page
  • Better than Reeder

    By PaulHubbard
    Uses less battery, updates faster, works great. I use it with Fever and am happy.
  • No inoreader support

    Still no inoreader support
  • Great reader!

    Love this app. Could only be better if the safari view controller background (before page loads I get a bright flash of white) and title bar/footer color could change for night/black schemes.

    Such an elegant and simple app. My only issue is with the category section: when selecting a category, we should have an option to read all of the articles under each category instead of having to select each individual source under that category to read its articles. For example, I have many sources for the “Tech” category, and it’s frustrating having to select each individual source in that category to read the website’s articles. I use this app every day, multiple times per day. This suggested change would make my reading experience much smoother and quicker.
  • Great RSS reader

    By nguyenhm16
    Revised review: After the developers responded and told me that I could mark an article read by double tapping it, I gave it a go for a few days as my primary RSS reader. I have to say I really like it now, and have promoted it to my iPad’s dock. Prior review: Paid for the upgrade, app looks great, but it’s not as efficient to use as Reeder (which is what I normally use). When looking at a list of articles, I really wish there was a way to quickly mark any given single article as read. The long press to bring up the list of actions is too slow and cumbersome, and marking as read upon scrolling is too blunt of a tool. In Reeder, you can configure swipe left and/or right to mark an article as read. This lets me quickly triage my list of unread articles from looking at the subject lines/summary, leaving a list that I actually intend to read.
  • Great app; attentive dev(s)

    By Phisherman81
    This is a joy to use on iPhone X. I encountered a bug and a developer replied same-day to let me know they were working on it. The very next day, bug fixed. BOOM This is worth it folks, don’t hesitate on Unread.
  • Great app

    By Seven7
    This is a marvelous RSS app and one of the best out there. It’s well designed, minimalistic and just works. Developer is very responsive to suggestions and that is a major plus. Good work!
  • Awesome support

    I tried many times it seems like feedly logon is broken on 1.8.1 (previously). After emailing their support their reply back was responsive and understand it was a main bug. I did not expect a fast delivery fix to this bug and they just did it on 1.8.2. I'm a user of unread since 2016 and been loving this app due to it is really very stable at 3500 articles a day with no problem. A little about what went wrong after 2014 I had reeder as one of the best rss reader. As time goes by developer of reeder decided to abandon the older version, for reeder 3. I find that reeder was great but the fixes were minimal and crashes occurs too much and it no longer supports iOS 9 at one point. Desperately looking for a good application I went search app stores and look around the web for reviews. This search pays off when I spotted unread good reviews I decided to try it for 1 week but I purchased it on the 2nd day.
