Reeder Releases on the iPad

I went through about six different Google Reader clients on the iPhone before I discovered Reeder. It was love at first site. The interface is understated, the synchronization is fast, and it includes tools to e-mail, Instapaper, ReadLater, and just about any other service you could ever want from an RSS Feed.

Good news. Reeder is now on the iPad. I’ve been running the beta as my only RSS App on the iPad for several weeks. It is rock solid and just as beaultiful as the iPhone version. A perfect match for Instapaper.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    First impression: Wow, this is what a well-designed iPad app should look like. Beautiful interface and, as you say, very fast syncing. This is definitely my new RSS reader for the iPad.

    I’ve been using NewsRack so far, as it doesn’t require syncing with Google Reader. I haven’t been a fan of Google Reader (still not), but being able to use Reeder on the iPad made it worth the switch.

    You have to try Feeddler RSS Reader for the iPad. The free version has most of the functionality as the Pro. The big difference that separates it from ALL of the other RSS readers is that you can read the feeds full screen in landscape. The extra width makes the fonts bigger and the reading experience so much more pleasant. NetNewsWire for iPad hasn’t been opened since Feeddler added full screen viewing in landscape about a week ago. I purchased the Pro version after that to support the developer. Why all of them don’t offer this awesome feature is beyond me. From the screenshots, it doesn’t appear that Reeder does either.

    I really like the way they designed Reeder for the iPad. It is very Instapaper-like in its minimalist presentation. I like the little details Ike being able to tap and hold a link within a blog post and send it immediately to Instapaper without viewing. Great app!

    Thanks for the article, David! I purchased Reeder for iPad yesterday evening and have been thrilled with the app. Now that I have Reeder on both my iPhone and iPad I doubt I’ll be using my Mac for much news reading.

    I’ve noticed that very few of the sites that I follow have a site graphic. The end result is that Reeder’s interface ends up looking rather bland. I did some digging and discovered that adding a site icon is incredibly easy. The simplest way to accomplish this is to add a square image named “apple-touch-icon.png” (the recommended size is 57×57 pixels, with square corners) to the root of your website. As a test I added an image to my http://www.timstringer.com blog – and it magically showed up in Reeder. As an added bonus, this same graphic is automatically used by the “Add to Home Screen” feature of Safari on either an iPhone or iPad.

    You can get a little fancier (e.g. use a different file name) by making some minor changes to the source code. If you Google "apple-touch-icon" there’s a lot of information out there.

    Happy reeding! 🙂
