Reeder for iPad - Landscape

Reeder 2– the best RSS reader on iOS — is getting a beefy new update soon, hopefully in time for holidays. The app’s developer has just submitted an update to Apple for approval that adds some big new features — including themes, Safari Reading List support, and more — as well as tweaked features and a load of bug fixes.

Here’s what you can expect when Reeder 2.1 hits the App Store.

What’s new:

  • Themes (can be changed in the article viewer → “aA” button)
