App Reviews

  • Meh

    By jingai
    Why all of my folder feeds are also outside their folders? No. Here’s the experience of this reader: scroll blur scroll blur scroll blur. Nice design when static, but in actual use having almost full screen previews doesn’t work; hurts eyes.
  • Well crafted

    By Maddi25
    Attention to detail, smooth performance, attentive dev. Well worth the $$
  • Great RSS reader app

    By Mandolin Dan
    I've tried several different RSS reader apps,and this is the best. It is clean,we'll designed,and easy to use once you work out the "swipe to the side" navigation system to move forward and back. It also offers a greater range of choices for font size,which is important for anyone with less than perfect vision.
  • Best looking

    By Kortes
    Would love if I could read articles saved to instapaper here as well the way Reeder does.
  • Solid app. Great dev!

    By taliwalt
    Unread is a great rss reader. Easy on the eyes and pulls the full text of an article. I purchased it ages ago but was a little disappointed in the developers at the time. Unread's new developer use awesome. Super fast to respond to emails. There's one feature Unread doesn't have which makes it a 4.5 start app (for me). I'd like to be able to use it independently from a 3rd party aggregator—My Feedly list is overwhelmingly large. For many users, that's not an issue. When I emailed the developer about it here responded in under a minute. I have no hesitation in recommending Unread. I paid $5 for it years ago, and it's more than paid for itself!
  • Favorite RSS Reader!

    By m.t.majeski
    Update: Issue with refreshing appears to have been a problem on the Feedly end of things. Everything is back to normal and working smoothly. I’ll start by saying that this is an amazing RSS reader! It’s clean, minimal UI just gets out of the way and lets me read. However, lately I have been having a lot of trouble getting my feed to refresh. I open Unread and it says that it is refreshing my unread articles and nothing loads. It usually takes a few force closes to finally get it to load, but by that point I could have already swiped through everything on the native Feedly app.
  • No Inoreader support

    12/20/17: Still no Inoreader support
  • Best app, but 3 showstopping issues

    By GregoryXandrew
    I love this app, it's AMAZING! But: 1) Sharing articles to Facebook Messenger only attaches the photo from the article, not the article. 2) Sharing to iMessage add a ton of text in between the Title and the Link. There shouldn't be any article text included. 3) Sharing to "Inbox by Gmail" brings up a new email, not the Inbox by Gmail share sheet that allows me to A)"Save to Inbox" or B) Send via email Please fix these and it'll be perfect!!
  • Wonderful to see it under active development

    By clearly751
    I’ve been using Unread for years and am so glad to see it receiving more frequent updates. It is the most elegant and refined of all the RSS apps. The photo thumbnails in the article list view is a must have feature. I would love to see in the future support for Inoreader and perhaps a San Francisco font option. I know the Whitney font is part of what makes the app distinctive but personally I find it a bit hard to read for longer articles. :)
  • Great RSS reader app

    By Erasmo da Narni
    It replaced, after several years, reeder. A refreshing look. Meaningful user interface. Adding force touch interaction would further improve this app already great usability. Recommended.
