Love this app, just one nitpick - Version 3 supported a bunch of built-in services for sharing items. Version 4 does the sensible thing and just uses the system share sheet. This works great on iOS, but on the Mac there doesn't seem to be a good way to share items to Pinboard anymore (aside from some very poorly reviewed and overpriced apps that I have not tried.) I hope this gap gets filled soon, or I might have to have a go at filling it myself.
Version 4 has stopped working - Even the most current February 2020 release does not launch anymore. It crashes on every attempt to open it. There is absolutely no response from support (since September 2019 when the problem was introdued) and others users are plagued with the exact same issue. Although I've truly enjoyed using Reeder and it was a pleasure to use when it still worked, I sadly have to strongly advise to stay away from version 4 and look elsewhere. Very disappointing.

(STILL) won't launch for months now - Reeder v4.2.4 still won't launch for me in latest macOS (v10.15.4, 19E287), and noticing other reviewers with the same issue. No response from developer -- how could this app have won an "editors' choice" award from Apple when it won't even launch for multiple users?!
A tranquil room to read in. - In the way that WriteRoom and Ulysses aim to provide a tranquil, fullscreen "room" to write in, I hoped to find an RSS app that would provide a "room" for reading news and blog posts. Reeder 4 is the best choice I've found so far. You stock its shelves by taking a field trip in a browser and copying the address. If Reeder can find a feed there, it offers you the chance to add it permanently. Hoping to make my experience look and feel just right, I fine-tuned a healthy handful of presentation options: white text on black without a thought, positioning the article titles, choosing their capitalization, sizing the text, and settling on the same font I use for Apple Books (from the same list of choices). A few features I don't require (syncing with Pocket and others, and a so-called "bionic reading" which selectively emboldens the start of words) might go appreciated by others. A cryptic "Reader mode" seems to reformat article text slightly. Other features I expected are currently absent: • When a new article is available, can Reeder notify you? Apparently not. • When the full article isn't present in the feed item's description, can Reeder fetch and display it? Apparently not. • Can you use a system font or select custom colors? Apparently not. • When showing a list of article titles from a single source, can Reeder omit the redundant source name from each item on the list? Apparently not. But in what it does, it has focus and grace, and it's a pleasure to arrive in. I use it almost every day. UPDATE: Unfortunately, I've spent enough time enduring crashes when renaming feeds to uninstall it. The honeymoon was lovely, but the longer relationship won't work if we can't compromise. UPDATE 2: It looks like that crash was addressed.
