RSS isn’t dead yet. Version 2.0 of Reeder, the highly anticipated sequel to the popular RSS app, has launched in the App Store as a universal download for the iPhone and iPad.

We’re living in a post-Google Reader world now, so Reeder 2 features support for some of the most popular paid and free syncing services: Feedbin, Feedly, Feed Wrangler, Fever, and Readability.

Reeder for iPhone got quickly updated with support for a couple RSS syncing alternatives right after Google canned Reader in July, but the iPad version of Reeder has been off the App Store since then. The app’s developer has been busy working on today’s 2.0 redesign with iPad support. Reeder 2 is optimized for all iOS devices, and it looks designed with iOS 7 in mind.

All of the sharing options Reeder users have come to expect are still there in version 2.0. Buffer, Instapaper, Pocket, Evernote, Pinboard, Zootool, Delicious, App.net, Twitter, and Facebook are all supported. The new version has some additional gestures to discover and the ability to rename feeds. There’s still no search, which is a feature we’ll likely never see in the app.

The mac version of Reeder also has a big redesign in the works, and a public beta is planned for the near future.

Reeder 2 is available now in the App Store as a new, separate download. It costs $5 or new users and those already on the first version.

    Too much, too late. I was a Reeder user, but since they did not update quickly enough I was forced to make other arrangements, and I’m not going to pay them again when I already have another solution.

    Well, good for you!
