‘Reeder’ Arrives in Mac App Store

by Marianne Schultz

Developer Silvio Rizzi has released his popular RSS feed reader app for the Mac. Reeder hit the Mac App Store earlier this week and has already garnered hundreds of 5-star ratings from users. Reeder was first available for the iPhone, debuting in September 2009 in the iOS App Store, with the iPad version following suit last June.

Reeder is a Google Reader client so you’ll need a (free) Google Reader account to use it. It offers complete synchronization with Google Reader when it comes to adding and removing feeds, read status, and more. It also works with several services, including Readability, Instapaper, Delicious, and others. Reeder for the Mac offers the same minimalist yet functional interface as the iOS versions.

The iPad version of Reeder was last a topic in our blog in December when it appeared that another developer, NibiruTech, had copied its interface in its MobileRSS HD app. NibiruTech updated MobileRSS HD shortly afterward to remove the similarities between the two apps.

Reeder for Mac costs $9.99. The iPhone version costs $2.99 and the iPad version costs $4.99. All of them are worthy purchases in my view if you are looking for a solid Google Reader-compatible RSS feed reader for your iOS devices and Mac.

    Hiya, I am really glad I’ve found this information. Nowadays bloggers publish only about gossips and net and this is actually frustrating. A good web site with exciting content, this is what I need. Thanks for keeping this site, I’ll be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can’t find it.
