ReadKit is one of the best read-it-later/RSS apps out there for the Mac. It supports a nice lineup of services, and now it has been updated with Feedly integration. Although Feedly is the best Google Reader alternative for most people, it has been lacking a solid Mac app—until now.

Here’s the full list of changes and bug fixes in ReadKit 2.2:

- Added new RSS service: Feedly
- Added line wrap for headlines
- Show dates in the article list
- Improved keyboard navigation
- Improved performance when mark all as read

- Fixed crashes when synchronizing feeds
- Fixed handling CTRL+click on sidebar items
- Fixed dock icon badge for Feed Wrangler and Feedbin items
- Fixed importing OPML files from various sources
- Fixed importing OPML files on OS X 10.7 (Lion)
- Fixed processing NewsBlur feeds
- Fixed issues when adding new feeds to Feedbin
- Fixed marking multiple Feedbin items as read
- Fixed syncing Fever group structure
- Fixed displaying detailed warning when marking multiple items as read
- Fixed restoring folder selection on startup
- Fixed feed parsing issues with built-in RSS engine
- Fixed decoding HTML entities in feed titles
- Fixed Cyrillic text issues
- Fixed refreshing item list when an account is removed from ReadKit
- Fixed the scroll position when switching between folders
- Fixed scroll issues in the built-in browser caused by popup windows

New navigation keys:
- Left, Right: move between folder and article list
- Command+Left, Right: collapse/expand the selected folder
- Space, Shift+space: paginate the article, then select the next item
- J, K: select next/previous items, then switch between services
- C: clear read items from the list
- Return: open/close the original view
- SHIFT+A: mark all as read

The keyboard shortcuts are a welcomed addition as well. ReadKit has matured into a reading powerhouse for the Mac, and the app is definitely worth checking out if you use any of the following services: Instapaper, Pocket, Readability, Pinboard, Delicious, Feedly, Fever, NewsBlur, Feedbin, and Feed Wrangler. There’s also support for local RSS sync if that’s your thing.

ReadKit costs $5 in the Mac App Store. It’s my favorite way to use Feedly on the Mac now.
