Good syncing and sharing support

Reeder 2 appears to be a worthy upgrade, although teething bugs and the lack of new and extra features may disappoint, especially as the app costs £2.99. That said, developer Silvio Rizzi has nicely tweaked a great RSS reader, especially following the demise of Google Reader, which can only get better with iOS 7.

It is, essentially, extremely similar to its predecessor. Something that some users might find off-putting when it comes to paying out again. Much has been discussed about the issues that iOS developers are facing when it comes to their inability to offer paid upgrades but, understandably, it’s far from ideal for consumers. It’s a very individual decision and one that’s tricky to be definitive with. Given the high quality of Reeder 2, however, I’d say it’s worth that premium price, even for those who have already dipped into the app.

Every bit as good as its predecessor

Admittedly, much of what I don’t like about Reeder 2 comes down to nitpicking. Its predecessor set the bar extremely high, and the new app just doesn’t exhibit the same attention to detail. That said, Reeder 2 remains an excellent RSS reader that, at its core, is every bit as good as... More

Admittedly, much of what I don’t like about Reeder 2 comes down to nitpicking. Its predecessor set the bar extremely high, and the new app just doesn’t exhibit the same attention to detail. That said, Reeder 2 remains an excellent RSS reader that, at its core, is every bit as good as its predecessor—it has already regained its status as my RSS-feed reader of choice. And if the history of the original Reeder is any indication, many of these skin-deep deficiencies will be addressed in regular updates.

If you happen to own the old version of Reeder, it may be a little hard to swallow paying for a new version that doesn’t provide much new functionality. But Reeder 2 gives you your daily news fix in an easy-to-use package that feels right at home on iOS 7. If you're an RSS junkie like me, Reeder 2—initial-release flaws and all—is easily worth another $5.

Probably the best one for your iPhone, but not for the iPad

from What's On Iphone

Keeping aside the lack of search, Reeder 2 does provide a very impressive experience.

Keeping aside the lack of search, Reeder 2 does provide a very impressive experience. But looking at Mr. Reader, providing everything above plus loads of other features, it is hard to keep eyes off it. You can go through its app description to find the endless list of features packed into it. It also comes with a lesser tag but unfortunately, is available only for iPads.

So this is the take away. If you’re an iPad only person, Mr. Reader would be my first suggestion for power users. Otherwise, if you have smaller screens to satisfy too, Reeder 2 being an universal app makes much more sense.

On the surface, Reeder 2 doesn’t offer much more than Reeder for iPad. It’s looks very much the same and there are very few additional features. There’s no doubt that Reeder for iPad needed a substantial rewrite in order to support the number of new feed services that rose out of the ashes of Google Reader and I’m sure as new services become available, Reeder 2 is in a much better position to be updated to support them as and when required.

I’d argue, however, that the familiarity of Reeder 2 is exactly what makes it so good. Silvio Rizzi pretty much nailed it with Reeder for iPad‘s original design and has distilled and refined it to be even better. By sticking to the very features and interface that made Reeder for iPad so popular, he’s avoided releasing a troubled second album and, instead, brought us what can be considered to be Reeder for iPad‘s greatest hits — digitally remastered.
