Focus on the act of reading with Unread’s full-screen article view. Articles are typeset in beautiful fonts from Hoefler & Co. Let nothing stand between you and the words of your favorite writers.

For truncated RSS feeds, quickly load the full text of articles into Unread’s beautiful readability view.

Move anywhere in the app with a sweep of your thumb without having to reposition your hand. Unread’s stacked navigation was built from scratch to be the most comfortable interface you’ve ever used. Flick left-to-right to go back from anywhere on the screen. Tug any screen right-to-left to show options for that screen.

Like to read in bed? Don’t strain your eyes or wake your partner with glaring white light. Unread has multiple themes designed for easy reading under different lighting conditions. Unread’s Black theme looks gorgeous on the OLED display of the iPhone X.

• BACKGROUND REFRESH • Unread keeps your subscriptions up to date with power-efficient background updating. Articles and images are saved to your device for convenient offline reading.

• SHARING • Use the share extensions to send articles to Instapaper, Pocket, Readability, Pinboard, or your Reading List. Share articles and images via Facebook or Twitter. Send a snippet of highlighted text to Omnifocus or Things for a quick reminder.

• QUICK ACCESS • Double tap an article summary to instantly toggle read/unread status. Press and hold to show a menu of options. This is great for quick sharing or for jumping straight to the web to view the original article.

• LINKED-LISTS • If an article is a linked-list article, like many written by John Gruber at Daring Fireball, the article summary shows the domain name of the linked item’s site.

• BIG THUMBNAILS • Turn on the optional inline thumbnails to see big previews of article images while you scroll.

• FOOTNOTE POPOVERS • Articles with properly formatted footnotes will show convenient popovers when you need to read a footnote.

What's New

Unread 1.9.1 adds these improvements:

• Added support for Feedbin saved searches.
• Tweaked the timing of haptic feedback. When in response to pulling the screen in a certain direction, haptic feedback now happens when you reach the pull threshold instead of when the resulting view appears. When the options view is triggered by tapping on the screen, haptic feedback now happens upon tap rather than when the options view appears.
• Fixed a bug that caused image flickering in the article list.
• Tweaked some thresholds to make it less likely that pulling up to Mark All Read will be invoked accidentally.
• Changed the Inoreader sync process to retrieve and display the list of saved searches earlier in that process.
• Fixed a bug that I inadvertently introduced in Unread 1.9 that caused the refresh indicator not to show the animation when refresh was initiated by a mechanism other than pull to refresh.
• Fixed a crasher that could occur when opening a folder that did not contain any feeds.
• Fixed some in-app purchase bugs.
