The best RSS reader post Google reader - An excellent RSS reader. When Google reader shut down, so did my favorite reader, Reeder. I first tried RSS Bot. It was the worst experience ever. On top of the inevitable spinning colored wheel which ran almost indefinitely, it consistently re-sent read articles and only updated certain URL's. I came to RSS Reader Plus by chance, but am not looking back. Once I loaded all the sites, I was in business. Thank you, thank you, thank you! If there is one complaint I have it is that I cannot link the app from computer to computer/device like I could on Reeder (and, if I can, I don't know how). Update: Still love the reader. Would like to be able to have the same account on multiple devices. Also, would like to figure out why it crashes so often. Almost always occur when I'm closing an article. Each time have to reset the FB posting ability. Finally, what about a LinkedIn posting option?

Crashes a LOT! - This RSS Reader could be great - Just installed it - Keeps crashing. Crashes if I delete an article, crashes if I click to open an article in the back ground. It loses my login information to facebook, etc. Hope they do an update soon - Would love to improve my rating.

Review by Armik

Best I've tried, but lacks a couple of features others have. - I loved this RSS reader. I have tried many in the past, before Google Reader went under. I've tried several since, and RSS Reader Plus is the only one I've been happy with. However, I miss one functionality that every single other one I tried had: Grouping feeds. I love to be able to separate all my Art & Design feeds from all my Technology & Gadget feeds, and so on. If RSS Reader Plus had this, it would be, hands down, the best RSS reader available today.

Really The Best RSS Feed Notifier - I've tried so many, some are okay, a couple were nice, but this one is far beyond any other RSS feed apps. You can organize your own feeds in folders and customize colors of the articles to the pictures next to the notifications. You can also have the notification screen floating, on the left, and on the right.

Review by Osfssg45

A pretty good RSS reader - I'm picky about my tools and this one stays out of my way when I don't want to see it. Lets me view articles in a slide out drawer or jump to the article in the browser. It makes a pleasant tone when any of the watched feeds are updated.
I appreciate the ability to hide feeds. The only additional feature I'd like would be the ability to segregate the posts by feeds from the viewer without having to go to settings to hide feeds I'm not currently using.
I would definitely recommend it to others.

Simply an outstanding RSS reader — far more flexible than NewsBar - RSS Reader Plus is simply an outstanding reader. I tried it against what seems to be its main competitor, NewsBar, and found RSS Reader Plus to be superior in almost every way: not only more flexible, and far more powerful; but also easier to use. Contrary to what another reviewer said (user Armik, at Aug 24, 2013), this app DOES allow you to group feeds — and, even better, in multiple ways. You can create a normal, group folder, in which you can put whatever feeds you want (all your Art & Design feeds in one, Tech & Gadget feeds in another, etc.) But you can also create as many SMART folders as you want, each using as many search criteria as you want to define. This blows NewsBar’s basic “Show me posts that match my single list of keywords” view out of the water. The single, unified window is a pleasure, especially since you can select whether the app will show posts in a simplified, stripped view, or render them in their HTML entirety as full web pages, complete with all sidebars and clickable links, from directly within the app itself. (It uses its own native browswer for this.) I.e., no more need to jump back and forth between the RSS reader and whatever normal browser you use. (Though of course, you CAN customize it to open posts in your system’s native browser too — and there’s even a separate keyboard shortcut for that.) Which brings me to keyboard shortcuts: there’s a TON of them. Again, blows NewsBar out of the water in that regard. One feature which I particularly like is the easy “Delete” option. This app is modeled as closely as possible on the Mac Mail app in its layout. So, like an email client, it allows you to “trash” posts at the click of a button (or keystroke) — which moves the post from the ‘inbox’ to the ‘trash’ folder. This allows more flexibility in how you treat stuff you’ve read. If you’ve skimmed a post, or read it but want to keep it hand for later, great: mark it as unread. It will then be unbolded, but remain in the inbox for that feed. Once you’ve decided you’re really done with it, then you can ‘delete’ it, which will move it to the trash folder, and get it out of sight. This is FAR more flexible than what Feedly or NewsBar offer. Sure, NewsBar allows you to “Delete” a post (though it’s a pain: there’s no button for it, and no keyboard shortcut: you have to right-click on the headline, and choose delete, which is seriously clunky). But once you do that in NewsBar, the post is gone baby: there’s no way to view the posts you’ve previously trashed, because there’s no trash folder or trash box in NewsBar. RSS Reader Plus makes it a snap. Just click on the “Trash” box, and it’ll display all the messages you've dumped. Decide you wanna ‘undelete’ a message? Easy: just drag-and-drop it back to the ‘mailbox’ for its feed. Or hit the keyboard shortcut. Crikey, this app is good. Oh, and of course, it handles OPML files with total ease. So you can import EVERYTHING from your Feedly account (or your NewsBar app, or whatever other RSS reader you’re ditching — as you should — for this one) into RSS Reader Plus in seconds. Can export your stuff just as easily too — to Feedly or whatever — if you wanna use Feedly as an online backup. Love this thing.
