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 (now v4.2.5) still won't launch for me in latest macOS (v10.15.5, 19F101), 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?!
Why need to restart Safari - In order to update Reeder, Safari must be closed? Why? They are separate apps.

Not what it used to be - The app used to be good before a lot of features got removed. Syncing the enite RSS file with icloud services is no longer available, just a read later feature now. It no longer works properly with watching youtube videos inside the reader. This is HUGR for someone like me who doesn't like google and doesnt want a google account. I've since had to find another reader. I'm very disappointed :(
Missing features, weird bugs - I waited 6 months since the release of this app to wait for them to work out kinks and add at least a level of functionality comparable to Readkit. But they didn't. Probably the most frustrating thing about this application is that it doesn't scale the width of the article when you set it to full screen. It takes up a tiny column in the center of your screen no matter how large you make the window. Very irritating for readability.
