lire (Full-text RSS)
WARNING: lire is not a google reader client.
IMPORTANT: lire comes bundled with the ability to fetch & cache up to 15 full-text articles per feed, and an option to remove that limit with a simple one-time in-app purchase.
Love RSS feeds? So do we!!
RSS feeds are a great way to follow updates on your favorite website. However, most RSS feed 'reader' apps, focus less on the reading aspect, and more on trying to manage feeds like an email client would manage emails.
RSS feeds are not emails, and lire does not treat them like emails, rather it tries to focus on the reading part.
Some sites set up their feeds to only show a portion of each entry, you know, to get you to click through to their actual website. We find that really annoying, and we're sure you do too.
Which is why, unlike other RSS feed readers, that either push you into a browser (in-app or otherwise), or depend on third party text parsing services and require you to be online to fetch the full text of one article at a time (which makes it no different from having to click/tap through to a website), in lire, you get your favorite RSS feeds as they should've been. You don't need to click through to any website (though, you do still have the option to, if you really wanted). It takes your favorite partial feeds, does it's magic, and converts them in to full feeds, so you don't have to click/tap on those annoying 'Read more' or 'Continue reading' links.
Once they're cached, you don't even need to be connected to read your full-text feeds.
- Performance improvements, under the hood improvements, and a whole bunch of minor bugfixes.
If you were having trouble opening OPML files to import into lire, please try again after installing this update, and let me know if you still face that problem.
